President Trump may not have been too far off in his remarks about Rep. Elijah Cummings district that includes the city of Baltimore.
Over the weekend, Democrats condemned President Trump after he attacked Cummings over his treatment of border control agents and suggested that the congressman focus on improving poor conditions of Baltimore, which is one of the cities within his district.
Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats labeled Trump’s remarks as “racist,” twisting his words to make it seem like he was racially slandering Cummings and the people who lived Baltimore.
Their racist label came as a result of Trump describing parts of the city as being a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess” and a “very dangerous & filthy place.”
A resurfaced video, however, favors Trump’s opinion on the conditions in Baltimore as the city’s former Mayor Catherine Pugh is heard describing it. Video Below
Investigative journalist, Sara Carter, posted a clip from Baltimore’s local news that shows Mayor Pugh touring an area of East Baltimore and seeing first-hand what a mess it is.
In the video, a disgusted Pugh is heard saying, “What the hell? We should just take all this sh** down.”
She also says, “Whoa, you can smell the rats…Whew, Jesus…Oh, my God, you can smell the dead animals.” Video Below
