President is making a habit of attacking specific U.S. cities as part of his 2020 reelection campaign.
At a raucous rally in Cincinnati, Ohio, on Thursday night, Trump through the mud ― and extended his attacks to Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Trump claimed that Baltimore’s homicide rate was “significantly higher than El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala,” then asked his audience for more suggestions to embellish the comparison.
The president settled on one person’s suggestion and added Afghanistan as a nation with a lesser homicide rate than the Maryland city that he started targeting about a week ago. He also noted that he may be wrong, which he’ll be called out on by the media.
