Baltimore Mayor Bashes Trump In Scathing Letter, Tells Him He’s Not Welcomed In The City: ‘Stay Home!’

Donald Trump has been planning on visiting Baltimore, Maryland on Memorial Day, but the city’s mayor has urged the president to stay home as he has set a bad example for how to handle the ongoing pandemic, Bloomberg News reported.

Mayor Jack Young explained that Trump’s visit would set a poor example for Baltimore because he refuses to take the appropriate public health precautions.

“That President Trump is deciding to pursue non-essential travel sends the wrong message to our residents, many of whom have been disproportionately impacted by the Covid-19 virus,” Young wrote in a letter. “I wish that the president, as our nation’s leader, would set a positive example and not travel during thing holiday weekend.”

He explained that Baltimore “simply can’t afford” the local costs of Trump’s trip. Trump already has a debt with other cities. In the case of one New Mexico town, Trump owes $211,175.94.

“When Lebanon City Hall sent Trump’s campaign a $16,191 invoice for police and other public safety costs associated with his event, Trump didn’t respond,” reported The Center for Public Integrity.
