After several weeks of baggings on the city non-stop and criticizing one of its Congressmen, Trump heads to Baltimore to deliver a speech at the GOP’s annual retreat.
Protesters will greet Trump with a giant-sized, inflatable rat and “President Street” now reads “Barack Obama Avenue.”
As he left the White House, Trump spoke to the press but didn’t talk about Baltimore. Instead he commented on the bigly, special election in North Carolina where Rep. Bishop won by only 2 points in a district Trump carried by 11.
Trump also spoke about prolonging his next round of tariffs on China, Mike Pompeo, and how awesome it is to work for him.
A coalition of local groups is planning to hold one protest, titled “Trump out of Baltimore,” according to a Facebook event set up for the demonstration. The groups include ICE Out of Baltimore, Peoples Power Assembly, Youth Against War & Racism, and one referred to as the Baltimore Welcoming Committee.
An organizer behind the planned demonstration, Miranda Bachman, said in a press statement that the “people of Baltimore, especially young people, are deeply opposed to Trump’s policies of racism and division, whether it’s his attacks on migrants or refugees or his not so veiled racist attacks on Black and Brown people.”
