Trump Says Crime In Major Cities Is A Result Of The Democrats Running Them

During a campaign rally in Cincinnati, President Trump challenged his political rivals and ushered forward a new series of public policy goals that he said his administration would work towards in the final year of his first term as president.

The president continued his ongoing feud with Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings during the campaign stop—this time blaming Democratic leaders of major cities for alleged mishandling of their offices. This, Trump argued, produces and continues criminal activity in inner cities and the surrounding communities.

From the Associated Press:

President Donald Trump is blaming Democrats for crime in the nation’s largest cities as he speaks at a rally in Cincinnati.

Trump said Thursday: “No one has paid a higher price for the far-left destructive agenda than Americans living in our nation’s inner cities.”

Trump is following up harsh comments he made earlier this week when he lashed out at Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings, calling his Baltimore-area district a “disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess.”

Trump claims Democrats want to help migrants more than their own struggling communities.

Trump is also attacking California for the number of homeless people living on the streets.

At another point of the rally, a group of protestors began loudly shouting and briefly stopped Trump’s address. These protestors were escorted out of the venue after just a couple of minutes.

When Trump continued, he blamed Cincinnati’s Democratic mayor and its Democratic lawmakers.

From the Hill:

“Democrat lawmakers care more about illegal aliens than they care about their own constituents,” Trump told the audience, prompting applause. “They put foreign citizens before American citizens. We’re not going to do that.”

Attention turned to a group of protesters in the arena who were holding up a banner that read, “Immigrants built America,” which was torn up in a brawl that interrupted Trump’s speech for more than two minutes.

Trump, after spending minutes watching the scuffle, approached the podium and asked, “Democrat mayor?”

“You must have a Democrat mayor. Do you have a Democrat mayor? Come on, law enforcement. Democrat mayor,” he said, again pausing as the protesters were escorted out of the arena, prompting a mixture of cheers and booing.

He continued: “Well, that’s what happens.”
