House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday struck back at President Donald Trump for his recent attacks on the city of Baltimore, which the president described as “dangerous” and “filthy.”

Via CNN’s Manu Raju, Pelosi said that Trump “doesn’t know what he’s talking about” when it comes to Baltimore and suggested that he “ask his son-in-law, who’s a slumlord there, if he wants to talk about rodent infestations” in the city.

Earlier this week, the Associated Press reported that residents at buildings owned by Kushner’s family real estate firm have been regularly complaining about “mold, bedbugs, leaks… and plenty of mice.”

Dezmond James, a Baltimore resident who has lived in one of the Kushner-owned buildings for the past four years, said the company is unresponsive to residents’ complaints.

“They don’t care,” he told the AP.

The Baltimore Sun reported in 2017 that Kushner’s company has also been “the most aggressive” when it comes to asking judges to arrest former tenants who still owe the company money.

“Since 2013, the first full year in which the Kushner Cos. operated in Maryland, corporate entities affiliated with the firm’s 17 apartment complexes in the state have sought the civil arrest of 105 former tenants for failing to appear in court to face allegations of unpaid debt,” the paper reported.

Protesters surrounded him with locked arms to protect him from those being violent. In Miami, Florida and Seattle, Washington, police joined protesters in kneeling.

Trump shows all the signs of being ‘rattled’ now that the White House is under siege from protesters: columnist

Published

In a column for the Atlantic, longtime political observer Peter Nicholas stated that Donald Trump is showing all the signs of a scared man as massive protests have broken out across the country over the murder of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minneapolis cops -- and angry Americans are taking their case all the way up to the White House gates.

As Nicholas wrote, "Presidents live within a protective cocoon built and continually fortified for one purpose: keeping them alive. But inside the White House compound these days, Donald Trump seems rattled by what’s transpiring outside the windows of his historic residence."
