Baltimore Mayor Slams President Trump for His ‘Unacceptable’ Comments About City

Baltimore Mayor Bernard “Jack” Young (D) blasted President Trump‘s comments about his city and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) on Saturday, calling the president a “disappointment to the people of Baltimore.”

“It’s completely unacceptable for the political leader of our country to denigrate a vibrant American City like Baltimore, and to viciously attack U.S. Representative Elijah Cummings a patriot and a hero,” Young said in a statement posted to Twitter.

“Mr. Trump, you are a disappointment to the people of Baltimore, our country, and to the world,” he added.

The mayor’s statement followed tweets in which Trump wrote that Cummings’s “Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous” than the U.S.-Mexico border, where Cummings has condemned the conditions.

Cummings’s district “is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place,” Trump added.

He also called the Democrat a “brutal bully.”
