  1. What did you do with the 2 billion dollars????? Phalick head…stop covering for Elijah Cummings and all of you should be investigated. If the President did not mention about Baltimore…you won't be jumping up and down….Idiots…. Do your job..

  2. Pretty much every major city has been run by the Democrats for the last 40-50 years. Most if not all of these cities are trash and crime infested. Also overtaxed, poorly managed, full of corruption and failing. Nothing gets better only worse and everyone always complains about their communities but most do nothing and vote the same way every election cycle. Here is an idea switch it up and try something different. This fool mayor and councilman in Baltimore have no integrity or accountability but want to grandstand like the president said some off the wall crazy nonsense. They're only mad because it's true. The city was given billions of taxpayer dollars and have nothing positive to show for it. Nothing. These Democrat city politicians are pure evil dont care about anyone but themselves. Wake up my friends.

  3. If the neighborhood are so bad why has it goes long so long? Cummings is a evil Democrats,. You should be a shame for letting citizens living that way. Sir you sound like a evil Democrats. Cumming needs to go.

  4. Maybe, just maybe
    If these elected fools focus on their district and Constituents just maybe they wouldn't be in defense mode.
    Just saying………

  5. Instead of getting defensive Baltimore should be thankful that President Trump has brought to attention the bad situation in Baltimore. Now maybe something will be done about it.

  6. It's a dump. Just get it together, stop focusing on Trump and turn that energy into helping your city. Bored with your delusions, democrats.

  7. Surprise, Surprise!!!! City officials Support incompetent elijah cummings!!Hey ASSHOLES, NOW you need HELP from the President???

  8. But you guys do have a rodent problem….now they call on the President to help but what about your congressman? Elijah Cummings has done nothing for your city but stuff his pockets.

  9. Yall were already given over 2 billion dollars to help fix some of the issues and what do you have to show for it?

  10. Rats require human food waste in order to survive. Simply not having food mess will keep rats, roaches, etc., away.

  11. The question that should be asked is what progress has been made. why hold a press conference? why not let your achievements speak for themselves if Baltimore is as you say a beautiful city. Put your pride aside and walk the streets to see the peoples suffering and hopelessness

  12. You are given the money so it is your sole responsibility to get the problems solved. I am from Maryland and know very well about Baltimore. You guys are always talk about racism. You guys are totally incompetent to run the city. Not at all. Shame on you, corrupts!

  13. Obama gave Baltimore 2.9 billion dollars, Trump gave 1.6 billion where was the money spent at, many many grants were given to the city and no on is accountable for it,

  14. No I’ve heard a lot of powerful black speakers in my lifetime and you can hear the conviction in the voice and you can see the power and determination by the look in their eyes but none of these people have it. They all seem like a bunch of liars.

  15. So Cummings is a hero across Baltimore. Then an admission that there are problems in Baltimore. Then call out Trump for help with those problems that Trump is saying Cummings is responsible to fix. Am I the only one who sees through this BS? Why aren't they calling Cummings out for neglecting Baltimore?

  16. MR. CUMMINGS AMERICA WANTS TO KNOW THAT HAPPENED TO THE 2.3 BILLION DOLLARS THE FEDERAL GOVT. SENT TO YOUR DISTRICT?

  17. …"Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also. And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers." – Luke 11:45 KJV

  18. Cummings said it was a drug infested area in 1999,the former mayor said it was rat infested in 2018. Democrats have done nothing for the people of Baltimore.

  19. The local officials are the ones that can fix the conditions in their city. Typical…we want other people to fix our issues. I hope the people that live in the parts of Baltimore that are desperately in need are appreciative of the President bringing attention to their plight. The local leadership should be ashamed.

  20. Why hasn't Fox News pushed the Elijah Cummings 'house breaking into' thing as far as YouTube videos go? If I search 'Elijah Cummings house breaking into and Fox News' it should automatically come up with a video unless… Fox News is left us high and dry and are as inept as the other stations… wake up! Do your jobs! There is NO WAY this subject should pass you by unless you SOLD OUT! You're gonna lose subscribers…

  21. Corrupt corrupt & corrupt…your shame and inhuman witchcraft have been exposed today by the servant of God for the people The Best President Ever Donald J. Trump

  22. Deny it and lie about it all you want. It is the truth and you are just exposing how dishonest and hateful you are. You crybaby, leftist scum can't stand the truth, even when it comes from your own people.

  23. This is nothing more than to try and unite the approximately 60% of non hispanic white Americans against the remaining 40% of minorities. I've read numerous comments on youtube channels on how the white race is being "attacked" and all Trump is doing is exploiting that way of thinking by his empowering tweets and comments. He's never cared about uniting anyone just sow division and hatred towards one another in order to achieve reelection. His fellow GOP lawmakers are terrified to stand against him knowing full well that his hateful base will rise against them. Funny how Trump has torn that page out of the GOP playbook that they've used on others who wouldn't go lockstep with the company line now it is Trump's line unfortunately

  24. Why don't you get that Corruption unchecked? Oh wait you already are and the tax payers money isn't being put to good use to take care of all what's broken and infested in your own city but it's not you that's suffering. It's your people are paying for it. Disgusting.

  25. Elijah Cummings ripped off ALL taxpayers of BILLIONS of dollars. We should demand that he be investigated for corruption.

  26. Basically, he acknowledged that they have a problem but he won't let anyone talk about it except the offered to help

  27. As President of the United States of America it is his duty to call out any city that has neglectful bureaucracy and misuses federal funds.

  28. Hey I'm a black guy from Baltimore, Trump didn't tell a lie. Baltimore is a shitty place.

  29. I would like to see the financial record of the cities spending in the last 30 – 40 years on rundown areas of the city. I am British but just a little digging finds corruption and questionable procedure so if I can find stuff online and see obvious decades of neglect added to a crime rate of epidemic proportions i do not see why the Racist card is being used. 45 said nothing racist and just pointed out something quite obvious to the rest of the world. Time to make these people accountable I think because somebody is obviously hiding something.

  30. So if all of NYC end up like Baltimore, who’s fault is it? It would be the Mayors fault and his fault only. He aloud the city to get that way. Y’all just don’t want to accept the fact that Elijah Cummings is to blame. One again, people can’t handle the true and want to point the finger at someone else.

  31. The Mayor and City council President should have stayed away from cameras trying to blame Baltimore problems on Trump! They look corrupt as hell and failed their city! Now they lie, deflect and cry Race to protect Cummings and themselves!

  32. i think an extensive investigation into the financials of all Baltimore officials is warranted ,,all those Gov funds went somewhere except where they were meant too

  33. Why don't the people of Baltimore just put their trash into a trash can. As long as they feed and vote for the rats they just keep multiplying?

  34. Trump should made a deal in building a border wall on the Southern Border by doing a counter offer to fix ALL Democrats led city conditions by spending in building infrastructures in Baltimore, Chicago etc. If the Democrats turn it down, it means that they care more about illegal immigrants than U.S residents.

  35. wow black gov black dis pre and black demonrat cong and all whinning 2gather to a white guy to help because they let it go to the rats hahahahahahaah

  36. Sadly I live around here, talk all you want , Baltimores a terrible place right now filled with some good folks that are being governed by some less than good people…look at all the young kids running the streets beating folks up for fun, mayors quit/get fired, police Chiefs get fired on a regular basis. Best thing you can do if you live here is leave here.

  37. Is it rat infested?
    Is the crime high?
    Has Federal money been mismanaged?
    If anyone who lives there answers yes to at least 2 questions Trump's statements are true.
    His statements have nothing to do with race it has everything to do with corruption. Perhaps the citizens of Baltimore need to stand up and get better representation! Obviously, Elijah Cummings has done a terrible job over the last 20 plus years, it's evident!

  38. Funny how he said put American citizens 1st but Cummings is putting immigrants 1st not his city. Hypocrisy at it's finest.

  39. Know your history and stop jumping on the bandwagon. 40 years ago trump was going to these now struggling cities and pitching his crooked development deals. Democratic city leaders and politicians in all of these cities lost billions to trumps fraud and bankruptcy. Trump says, make America great again. Wow he’s the very person that started the downfall 40 years ago, now he wants to come back and throw stones. Many of us are still alive and know your dirty truth. Trump is a paper elephant! The wall, got to build a wall stop the immigration. Really, how about 10 billion in aid to our neighbors in South America then maybe they would stay home. Then we could put billions back into fixing America. This border wall crap will fail and cost over 900 billion. Great Wall of China, Berlin Wall all walls fail. Help America’s cities and states now to be greater in 10 years.

  40. When Truth is viewed negatively………
    SELL OUTS THE WHOLE LOT OF THEM……….
    THIS GUY TOOK MONEY……..
    FRAUDSTERS LIKE CHICAGO…
    BRING IT.

  41. That is your town , you have the responsibility in your community. You don’t have to be told, you should be taking the initiative to start the work in the first place

  42. The Crime and Corruption in Baltimore is like A 3rd world Mess Millions have been spent but nobody seems to know where the money is going As far as start working you are years and years late on improving things in Baltimore.

  43. Billions of dollars is not going to help unless you take away welfare and restore family. People are afraid to get to the root of the problem in this country. Due to our freedom.

  44. What a moron. Thanks to President Trump's comments american citizens, many of whom traveled miles from outside your Baltimore neighborhood, just held a clean up in your Baltimore neighborhood's. Where the hell were you,? Running your mouth on TV spouting negative comments about Trump further ignoring the filth in your neighborhood. The shame is all on your hands there knuckle head.

  45. Exactly, the president is telling you to fix the mess and give the people back the money you banked into your accounts. Dam politicians you can't cover the heaven with your dirty hands.

  46. No body was downing the city fool he was talking abt Cummings talkin smack n not doin for his state n city ,another failing leaders of Baltimore Stupid Asses !! Shut the Hell up n start doin

  47. Where did the money go you can try and cover up all you want. We also want to know where the 92 million his wife received. He Didn't attack the people he attacked the politician Cummings. Oversight committee shouldn't be he can't over see his people and make sure they were okay. Just drive thru you can see the pot holes maybe 10 feet apart. Garbage everywhere until a bunch of people came in and cleaned it up. Cumming neglected his people no doubt. I can tell you he sure in hell doesn't live there.

  48. The people of Baltimore seem to agree with Mr Trump. Who are the better judges, the people or the officials? If the jobs won't go to Baltimore, the workers and their families should move to cities where there are jobs. The best thing the Federal Government could do would be to set up a program to finance the emigration of people from Baltimore to other American cities where there are job opportunities. The people probably need financial support for finding jobs, housing, and training.

  49. Whats Baltimore got to offer??? lazy welfare black thugs trashing the city waiting for whitey to pay for everything ,and having thieves like Elijah Cummings pocketing the money.
