Baltimore battle overshadows positive economic news for Trump

Baltimore battle overshadows positive economic news for Trump


BOTTOM LINE, IT’S DONE.>>>MEANWHILE, PRESIDENT TRUMP IS DISTRACTING FROM THESE TYPE OF DEVELOPMENTS WITH SOME TWEETS THAT HAVE GONE BACK AND FORTH NOW OVER BALTIMORE, OVER THE CONDITION OF DISTRICTS RUN BY AFRICAN AMERICANS. POLITICAL WHITE HOUSE REPORTER KATHY ORR WITH US ON THAT. NOW IT’S JUST, YOU KNOW, A MUD FIGHT. I’M WONDERING EVEN WHEN THE PRESIDENT IS RIGHT, DO SOME OF HIS BACKERS FEEL IT’S SOUNDING AND BEING TRANSLATED ALL WRONG? WHAT ARE YOU HEARING?>>HIS CAMPAIGN THINKS THAT THIS IS AT LEAST WORKING TO HIS ADVANTAGE, NEIL, BUT IF YOU LOOK AT POLL AFTER POLL, WHEN REPUBLICAN VOTERS HAVE BEEN ASKED WHETHER OR NOT THEY THINK THE PRESIDENT’S TWITTER HABITS ARE BENEFICIAL TO HIM AND TO HIS RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGN, THEY TYPICALLY SAY THAT THEY WISH HE WOULD TWEET LESS. I THINK IT’S MOMENTS LIKE THIS WHERE THESE CONTROVERSIES ERUPT WHERE YOU SEE POLITICIANS ON ALL SIDES, DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS, CONDEMNING THE PRESIDENT’S OUTBURSTS THAT IT REALLY DOES TEND TO HURT HIM. AGAIN, IF YOU TALK TO HIS CAMPAIGN OFFICIALS, THEY WILL TELL YOU THIS IS ALL PART OF A COHERENT STRATEGY TO CAPTURE THE ATTENTION OF DISAFFECTED VOTERS WHO ARE WORRIED ABOUT MAJOR CULTURAL CHANGE IN AMERICA. THEY ARE SPECIFICALLY TARGETING WHITE WORKING CLASS VOTERS AND UNION HOUSEHOLDS IN PLACES LIKE THE RUST BELT STATES THAT TRUMP WON IN 2016, WHO THEY THINK THEY CAN REACH BY STIRRING UP THESE CONTROVERSIES. NEIL: YOU KNOW, SO FAR, POLL NUMBERS WITHIN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY VINDICATE HIM AND THIS APPROACH THAT HE’S TAKING AND MAYBE SOME PEOPLE SEE THROUGH THE HYPOCRISY OF HIS CRITICS LIKE AL SHARPTON, FOR EXAMPLE, SAYING TIWANA BRAWLEY WHO LIED ABOUT WHITE MEN RAPING HER, IT’S A BIT RICH FOR HIM TO CLAIM ABOUT INCITING RACIAL ATTACKS SO MAYBE THAT IS CHANGING IT, BUT NOT SO WITH INDEPENDENTS AND PEOPLE FOR WHOM THE PRESIDENT WOULD PROBABLY WANT TO REACH OUT, RIGHT?>>RIGHT. IT’S HARD TO SEE HOW THIS WORKS TO CAPTURE THE ATTENTION OR BRING INTO THE FOLD INDEPENDENT VOTERS, CENTRIST VOTERS, PEOPLE WHO MIGHT BE DISAFFECTED OR FEEL AS THOUGH THE CURRENT DEMOCRATIC PARTY DOESN’T REPRESENT THEIR VIEWS BUT AREN’T QUITE READY TO EMBRACE PRESIDENT TRUMP AND CERTAINLY DIDN’T VOTE FOR HIM IN 2016. OF COURSE, THAT’S THE GROUP THAT HE’S GOING TO NEED TO TARGET HEADING INTO 2020, TO EXPAND HIS BASE AND FIND A PATH TO RE-ELECTION. IF HE CAN’T GET THOSE VOTERS INTO HIS FOLD, IF HE CAN’T GET THEM TO VOTE FOR HIM IN 2020, IT’S DIFFICULT TO SEE HOW BENEFICIAL THIS STRATEGY ACTUALLY IS. NEIL: YOU AND I HAVE GOTTEN INTO THIS BEFORE, THE PRESIDENT’S PEOPLE REMIND ME THEY THINK THAT SUPPORT IS THERE, IT’S JUST THAT THEY ARE AFRAID TO ADMIT IT IN POLLS, AND THEY TALK ABOUT RECORD LOW UNEMPLOYMENT RATES AMONG HISPANICS AND AFRICAN-AMERICANS, THAT THAT IS SURELY GOING TO RESONATE AT THE POLLS WITH GROUPS WHO MIGHT NOT GIVE HIM A MAJORITY, BUT THEY WOULD CERTAINLY GIVE HIM MORE OF EACH VOTE SECTOR THAN A REPUBLICAN HAS ENJOYED IN THE PAST. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THAT?>>WELL, LOOK AT THE EXIT POLLS FROM 2016 AND 2018. THE PRESIDENT DID DO A DECENT JOB AMONG HISPANICS AND AFRICAN-AMERICAN VOTERS BUT UNDERPERFORMED THE PREVIOUS TWO REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEES, MITT ROMNEY AND JOHN McCAIN. SO TO SAY THAT THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE AMONG AFRICAN-AMERICANS IS GOING TO HELP HIM IN 2020 OR GIVE HIM SOME TYPE OF AN EDGE IN THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE, HIS CAMPAIGN WILL MAKE THAT ARGUMENT, THEY WILL CONTINUE TO SAY THAT THESE ARE THINGS THAT WILL HELP HIM WITH MINORITY COMMUNITIES, BUT WHEN YOU JUXTAPOSE THAT WITH THE MEDIA COVERAGE OF THESE TWEETS AND THE RACIAL ANIMUS THAT HAS BEEN PUT AT THE CENTER OF HIS CAMPAIGN, IT’S JUST DIFFICULT TO SEE HOW YOU SQUARE BOTH OF THOSE THINGS AND WHETHER THIS STRATEGY ACTUALLY DOES HELP THE PRESIDENT AS OPPOSED TO HURTING HIM WITH THOSE MINORITY COMMUNITIES AND WITH INDEPENDENT VOTERS WHO ARE PAYING VERY CLOSE ATTENTION TO HIS CAMPAIGN. NEIL: ALL RIGHT. WE’LL WATCH CLOSELY. THEIR ARGUMENT IS THAT’S A DIFFERENTIATOR. THIS TIME HE HAS THE LOWER

  1. Mr. President, just let them squeal like the pigs they are, we know they are screwed up, so don't fall for the bait, unless it really gets out of hand. Dumbocrats are down to their last boxes of ammo and shot themselves in the foot with Mueller Report. Keep on the MAGA PATH. REMEMBER Mark Twain sad "never argue with an idiot, they will just bring you down to their level and beat you with their expertise ". We'll take care of them at the blot box.

  2. Baltimore is a dump, anyone that has been there recently can see the President speaks the truth. Noticing a trend here that every democratic city/state is a hellhole. You can put Chicago, San Fransisco on that list.

  3. BALTIMORE STATE SCHOOL SYSTEM WAS FAILING BECAUSE THEY NEVER GIVE EMPHASIS REGARDING THE IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATION TO THOSE YOUNG GENERATION. I'VE HEAR IT IS 0% OF LITERACY. IT IS LIKE KIDS NEVER GO TO SCHOOL OR YOU CAN SAY THEY ARE ILLITERATE EVENTHOUGH THEY ARE AT SCHOOL. MY GOODNESS THAT WAS SO SAD. THE TRUTH HURTING SO MUCH ESPECIALLY WE KNOW THE TRUTH. AND ALWAYS PLAYING EMOTIONAL BLACKMAILING EVERYTIME SOMEONE CAUGHT THEIR ATTENTION OF THEIR WRONGDOING. AMERICA CITIZENS HAVE A DREAM AS WELL TOO. WHY YOU NEVER FIGHT WHAT IS THE TRUTH.BEING A FOOL AND STUPID NEVER LET YOU GOING SOMEWHERE. IS IT OKEY FOR YOU TO PRETEND YOU ARE FINE AND OKEY EVENTHOUGH YOU ARE DYING INSIDE. THAT YOU CALL HYPOCRISY. BE YOURSELF. YOU WILL NEVER DIE IF YOU KNOW HOW TO EMBRACE THE TRUTH. DON'T DECEIVED YOURSELF. WHOM AMONG YOU CAN TELL. THAT FREEDOM CAN ACHIEVED ONLY IF YOU CAN HAVE ALL THE FREEBIES AROUND THE WORLD. YOU CAN'T DO THAT. IN ORDER YOU CAN ACHIEVED FREEDOM IS BY MEANS OF SACRIFICING YOURSELF TO FIGHT FOR THE TRUTH BY HEART AND SOUL. A FAILURE OF A STATE IS A REFLECTION WHO'S THE ONE REPRESENTING THEM TO THE PUBLIC. USE YOUR WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE AND NOT DECEIVED BY YOUR EMOTION BECAUSE OF FAILED MINDSET AND NO TRUTHFULNESS IN YOUR HEART. LIFE IS TO SHORT AND DON'T THROW YOUR LIFE AWAY FOR SNARES AND PRINCIPALITIES OF THIS WORLD. GIVE WORTH TO YOURSELF.

  4. So according to Gabby Orr it wasn't appropriate for President Trump to bring to life the horrible conditions the good people are facing in Baltimore and the failure in leadership for so long.

  5. al sharpton is a racest and he always have been every seance he first stuck his nose into politics back in the 1960s and got invovled with martin luther king jr and hae been a loud mouth and an instagator the hole time

  6. You hear that she basically said all you trailer park trash he's looking to get which also is his base because he cant get the vote of the rat infested area

  7. SHE'S full of it. Every dems I know with the exception of 3 ( the dumb shits) all are switching to Republican there are approx 60 all hispanic.

  8. The Polls are not reliable because people know that they are not truly speaking anonymously because their phone numbers are known. The Pollstergeists are finished.

  9. The media makes Twitter a bigger deal than it really is. If Trump didn't tweet they would be out of business. It's Instagram now

  10. THIS IS ON TRUMP, THE NRA, THE REPUBLICANS & THE WHITE SUPREMACIST SUPPORTERS. STOP IT BEFORE IT HAPPENS TO YOU.
    "The Gilroy Garlic Festival shooter complained about mixed race people, Silicon Valley and promoted a controversial anarchist book that is beloved by white supremacists in three Instagram posts just moments before he opened fire on Sunday.
    Santino William Legan, 19, has been identified as the gunman who opened fire on crowds at Sunday's festival, killing three people including a six-year-old boy, 13-year-old girl and 25-year-old college graduate.
    Another referenced the book Might Is Right by Ragnar Redbeard, aka Arthur Desmond, an alt-right politician whose views are beloved by white supremacists and are widely considered antisemitic. The book is so inflammatory it was banned for years."

  11. No, Fox news. It's not overshadowing. You media idiots are lost in your own little world. Have another cocktail and keep chatting up Alice in your little wonderland.

  12. No, Fox news. It's not overshadowing. You media idiots are lost in your own little world. Have another cocktail and keep chatting up Alice in your little wonderland.

  13. All of us that believe in the power of prayer, need to commit to pray often (to the Christian God) that President Trump will be reelected. He is not a perfect man – NONE of us are – but he is leading this country in the right direction. Well, that is my opinion. Trump 2020!!

  14. Who cares what "buckwheat haircut Sharpton," says and thinks. He is a liar and a proven fraud.
    And Trump simply tells it like it is. Criminal, corrupt Democrats can't handle the truth.
    That's why the" liar in chief" ( Obama) has come out and opened his blowhole to the corrupt national corporate press.

  15. So Identify all the Democrats failed cities around America. Then decide, Bernie said that Baltimore is like a Third World Country. Trump said it’s Rat infested, they are both right.

  16. Look, these independent and undecided voters have to look at the big picture. Socialism with the Dems or capitalism with Republicans. I. E. Do you want a change of culture and lifestyle under the SOCIALISTS or; protect what you already have already under this administration. Remember, TRUMP told the coloured community that they had nothing to loose if they voted for him and he didn't let them down including Hispanics, Asians, Women etc. There for, what road do you take. LEFT OR RIGHT or straight ahead into the abyss. Your choice.

  17. PRESIDENT TRUMP, ALWAYS TELLS THE TRUTH, AND THE DEMOCRATS TREMBLES IN FRIGHT. DON'T DARE ATTACK PRESIDENT TRUMP, HE'S A SHARP SHOOTER, SHOOTS YOU BULLSEYE IN WORDS, THAT YOU CAN'T ESCAPE, BUT SHAKE IN FEAR.

  18. These people are STUPID!!!!! Trump TWEET because the Lame stream..Fake Media don't cover anything he says or does thats Positive. He gets NO AIR TIME thats NOT negative!! Tweeting is BRILLIANT and goes STR8 over the Medias head to Main stream America!! We Are Not Stupid!!!

  19. Trump is RIGHT to call out Cummings Crooked Azz!!!! He been in congress for 2 decades stealing money from his Districts. Nacey and Schumer are NEXT. Then Aunty Maxine!!! All these crooks been stealing millions from the Minorities for DECADES!!!

  20. Trump didn't say anything except the truth. The districts that are run by Dems are all messed up . They are run down and dangerous. He did not say a word about color…

  21. These major cities in America are the most violent cities in the world. There's no pride in these communities no ownership. Cause if you owned it. You wouldn't allow your neighborhood to get so dangerous. People need to know in the world to be careful of traveling to these cities. Very dangerous

  22. tRump, You Monstrous FOOL, and yet American still let him stay him in the WH???? – WHERE ARE YOU Nancy Pelosi??? – God Almighty Bring on the Impeachment Already!!!!

  23. Hard to believe people are dumb enough to believe, and trust this blowjob. I hope u trumptards are sufferin,morons. Hows the market helpin u stupid trump supporters???

  24. They never report any of his progress he is a master chess player.all the distractions tweets and nobody is talking about his opponents checkmate maga2020

  25. Neil is so out of touch with the average logical thinking american, Imagine if peoplewere not worried about being assaulted, the Trump enthusiasm would be crazy. He can still fill 3 areana's with it.

  26. THE PRESIDENT IS RESULT DRIVEN .. TRUMP VOTERS STAND BY THE PRESIDENT BECAUSE OF ACTION .. NOT WORDS .. WORDS ARE FOR THE DO NOTHING DEMOCRATS .. ALL TALK BECAUSE TALK IS CHEAP..

  27. TRUMP SPEAKS TRUTH! Dems don't (yet) understand Truth. They want Tweets to stop, They need to Work!
    Mean while The GREATEST Actions needed is to CLEAN UP – START PROSECUTIONS! Years of CRIME Still on Hill.

  28. Maybe ask Baltimore where the $1.8 billion went that Hussein gave them in 2015? It went in Cummings pocket. Baltimore is a cesspool. Always has been.

  29. Trump does not get to criticize cities. He is the president, go fix it. The criticism face should be over, its your job now.

  30. American children's history classes will be interesting in several years. Little Johnny: Who's that 45 guy? Teacher: They had to put an asterix on orange 45 guy's record due to adderall. Happily, 46, 47 and 48 are much better, like the time before the war. People learned their lesson from that and also the make great again dreadful hats in our countries' history. Johnny: You are the best teacher ever!

  31. The new party will be known as Trump Party, so much for Republican… because with Republican, you get a few that want to do something, and rest who lay down for everything.

  32. Sometimes the truth really hurts!!! All the democrat run cities have their share of crap!!! The president is right!!

  33. There is no distraction, Trump supporters are with him in this fight to rid this country of corrupt politicians like Elijah Cummings.

  34. Tweet less ?! ?! WTH , are you crazy ? I love hearing you pussycats whin about his tweets. It makes my day

  35. Our economy is failing it dont take a rocket scientist to see that

  36. Trump is just shining light on the corruption thats been going on for many years. We cant help it that most of the corrupt ones are ran by democrats. Cant depend on MSM to be as honest as Trump

  37. America has the lowest level of racism in history. So this is not about race. It's about opportunity. The people in these ghettos need jobs, including financial support to help them to relocate to places where there are jobs to be had. Now is the time for local migration from cities without jobs to cities with jobs. How does it make any sense to "import" illegals who do not speak English to do jobs that people from Baltimore could do with a little help in migrating to another city?
    We can see clearly, that the border crisis and the mess in cities like Baltimore are both designed to lock voters into voting Democrat under the illusion the Democrats will improve their lives.
    Let the US support internal migration from places without jobs to places with jobs, including training programs and relocation support. That makes good social sense and it is good for American businesses.

  38. Niel is being dishonest. Trump was not criticizing African-Americans for their administering of the cities that their policies had caused those cities to decompose into refuse, but that these cities were being administered by Democrats. Democrats (not all, but their leaders and more) are racists, and the result of their policies are evidenced by these cities becoming havens for rats, garbage, drugs, etc. The Democrat's response but proves their own racist bigotry.

  39. in 2016 trump was the guy "taking down tha man", who was working against the swamp. in 2020 he is being painted by the MSMs as if he IS "tha man" who IS the swamp.

    that being said, i think he is playing into their hands by doing these twitter publicity stunts to try and get the fake russia hoax MSM attention off him. i think he needs to test the waters for marijuana legalization to see if his base won't abandon him and if they don't then use that now, and build up steam in the future, to try and win the middle of the road voters, and even some moderate liberal / dems, in 2020.

  40. Well, this is a Cancer. 1 Idea to shack-up the F, thing. Star to show on the net, youtube,.. all politicians houses just to let the people have an idea how good this mother f leave. Starting with Ms Pelosi, Schumer, Sanders, Shift, ,…. PEOPLE MUST KNOW

  41. I am waiting for the day that the left wants The White House being called …The White House racist and demand that the name be changed, as white being RACIST !!
    Enough already…lets get back to fixing the problems instead of calling people out, this does not get any governing accomplished !!
    PLEASE GET OUT AND VOTE !!! WE NEED TERM LIMIT….FOR SURE !!

  42. The fact that the president or anyone else says what he/she actually thinks, especially when you could simply say nothing! The truth is there will be more done about the living conditions and vermin problems because of two days of trump speaking about it. Then 10years of recognising but not repeating or truly resolving the issue.
    It’s cause it is not said the issue exists!
    So many are so quick to state there pride in their area and defend its value.
    Where were these people when the problem could have been swayed

  43. If Trump didn't tweet these things America would NEVER hear about it. The liberal media says NOTHING about the deplorable conditions in these democrat controlled cess pits. If ANYONE speaks one word about it he or she is INSTANTLY labeled a RACIST to shut them up. The democrats have no defense they are in complete control of Baltimore have been for over 80 years. It's a sewage city there's not one Republican there they can point a finger at. They own it. A Federal investigation of ALL of these bastions of liberalism needs to be conducted and the ones in charge of the cities PAST and PRESENT need to be held accountable.

  44. When the liberal media addresses the problem, it's ok.
    When Trump mentions the issue, it's racist!?
    Let's thank PBS, ABC, NBC and many local newspapers for highlighting the rat problem for years. And someone pat Elijah Cummings on the back for spending his time fundraising and try to in impeach Trump, because those are the issues that Baltimore cares about!

  45. THESE REPUBLICANS WHO DON'T AGREE WITH THE POTUS IN REALITY ARE AFRAID OF TRAITOR DEMOCRATS AND HAVE NO BIG BALLS.

  46. Trump will get a much larger piece of the black & Hispanic vote in 2020… he is doing amazing things for the country and minorities especially.

  47. NEVER TRUMPER NEIL… NEVER BELIEVE CAVUTO… LIKE ALL LEFTIST LIARS CAPUTO with CAVUTO!! A LOW IQ LOSER that TALKS JUST to HEAR HIMSELF SPEAK!!! He's a DISGRACE to ALL ITALIAN SIR NAMEED AMERICAN PATRIOTS that LOVE and RESPECT OUR GREAT COUNTRY Its FLAG and our GREATEST and GODLY REVERED PATRIOT PRESIDENT!!!!

  48. I am most curios about the construct of polling, the questions asked the respondents. For example the respondent apparently asked the question: should the President reduce his incidence of twitting? The respnse reported is the public wants less twits. I wonder if the public is responding negatively to the news media's delivery of twit material. There is large disparity in objectivity produced by msm, and the tortured path the msm follows. The public in processing the info is overwhelmed in their search for objectivity. The one rubic that is a go to: don`t trust the msm if their mouth is moving.

  49. OMG I thought he was the president he can tweet all he wants I swear is everybody just stupid you cant follow the money cannot you tell that Cummings is crooked just like Donna and Hillary

  50. ITS NOT JUST AFRICAN AMERICANS LIAR,IT IS ABOUT ALL CITIES RUN BUY DEMORATS THAT STEAL ALL THE MONEY THAT IS SUPPOSE TO GO TO THE PEOPLE OF THAT CITY…. GET IT RIGHT GAVUTO…

  51. At last, we have a president that is all American. He is a terrible politician. He is also what we need to revive the USA. Five more years will have all our major problems fixed. Trump will go down as the best president this country has ever had. What would you like him to do ?
