Candidates Invoke Baltimore on 2nd Night of Dem Debates; Blast Trump

"They ought to make a decision on out that shapely demolish of an Oversight Committee, lope all of the contrivance in which down to Baltimore and other Democratic-jog cities and make a selection a watch, see within the occasion you must well salvage the billions that were stolen", Trump said.

"With me, only up!" he said.

Earlier, Trump denounced the "horrors" of slavery in a speech in Jamestown, Virginia, celebrating the founding of the first local legislature there by English colonists 400 years ago.

The remarks were Trump's firsts since the Tuesday night Democratic debate in Detroit, Michigan.

Eighty percent of black voters said Trump is racist while 11 percent said he is not.

"What I've done for African-Americans in two and a half years, no president has been able to do anything like it".

"We is doubtlessly no longer attending any phase of the commemorative session the place Donald Trump is in attendance", the Virginia Home Democrats said on Twitter. Now, in some cases its true, there are people that are racist.

The hosts of Fox News Fox & Friends and MSNBC Morning Joe are generally at odds when it comes to their political views, but on Thursday they shared a similar assessment following the second night of the CNN hosted Democratic presidential debates.

"CNN's Don Lemon, the dumbest man on television, insinuated last night while asking a debate "question" that I was a racist, when in fact I am "the least racist person in the world".

Some Baltimore residents took offense to Trump's comment that "no human being would want to live there" - including David Simon, author and creator of the hit TV show "the Wire", which won awards and critical praise for its portrayal of Baltimore as a crime-infested "corrupt mess".

According to Federal Bureau of Investigation data from 2017, the latest full-year figures available, Baltimore had a murder rate of 55.8 per 100,000 population, which was less than that of St Louis, Missouri.

Baltimore has the United States' highest homicide rate.

President Trump has been labeled a racist for using the word "infested" to describe Baltimore's rat problem, but Elijah Cummings used the exact same word to describe the city back in 1999.


Sharpton responded that Trump is a bigot with "venom for blacks".

As Trump spoke in Virginia, where in 1619 the first enslaved Africans arrived in English North America, a congressional delegation led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited the Door of No Return in Ghana, the departure point for millions of Africans bound for the Americas and sold into slavery. "They are upset with his divisive comments and are likely to turn out in big numbers in 2020", West said.

The claimed flood of phone calls could not be independently verified.

But a separate Quinnipiac poll, released Monday, found Trump has a 6% approval rating and 84% disapproval rating with black voters.
