President Donald Trump is scheduled to give a speech in Baltimore on Thursday after insulting the city as “rat and rodent-infested.”
Politico reported that the president is expected to speak at a House Republican retreat in Baltimore.
Trump verbally attacked the city in July during a dispute with Maryland Sen. Elijah Cummings (D).
In a July 27 tweet, Trump charged that Baltimore is “far worse” than “conditions at the Southern Border.”
“Cumming [sic] District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess,” Trump wrote. “If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place.”
….As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place

The president also claimed that “no human” would want to live in Baltimore.
