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

Trump, who has sought to brand all the Democratic candidates as socialists, will take the stage at a campaign rally in this battleground state eager to exploit the ideological fissures in the Democratic Party laid bare in the debates.

I haven't heard anyone on the left attempt to refute any of the president's points, likely because they know there is no legitimate rebuttal of what Trump stated.

Trump campaign and Republican Party officials have already spent the last two days amplifying the Democratic candidates' most progressive positions and magnifying attacks on frontrunner, former Vice President Joe Biden, whom Trump and many of his advisers privately consider the biggest general election threat. Ibraheem Samirah, a Democrat, who stood holding laminated signs that said "Deport Hate", "Reunite My Family" and "Go Back to Your Corrupted Home".

"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. And we are stronger and greater because of this diversity, Mr. President...

The latest remarks came after Trump on the weekend described Baltimore as a "rat and rodent infested mess" unfit for humans and blamed this on Elijah Cummings, the black Democrat who represents much of the city in Congress.

On Tuesday morning, Trump tweeted: "Heading to Jamestown, Virginia". On Saturday, Trump lobbed attacks on a prominent black congressman and the city of Baltimore, parts of which are in the congressman's district.

'Trump...is using the exhausted old language of demagogues, of fearmongers, of racists...'

Why has Trump been called racist?

Trump also is under fire for his ongoing attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color, who he tweeted should "go back" to their countries - even though three of the four were born in the United States and all are US citizens. We are here to stay.

"Self-government in Virginia did not just give us a state we love - in a very true sense it gave us the country we love, the United States of America", he said.

Alternatively, the summer of 1619 is remembered no longer finest for that important first meeting of an meeting, it moreover marked the foundation of brutal years when Africans were delivered to this land.

46% of white people said Trump is racist, compared to 80% of black people, the poll found. Lamont Bagby told AP that the group of about 20 lawmakers had reached a unanimous decision to boycott the event more than a week ago, before Trump began to assail Cummings. "And that was just one more example of it". The poll comes after Trump's criticism of lawmakers of color, including saying that congresswomen critical of his policies should "go back" to "totally broken" countries they're from, despite three of four of them being born in the US.
