Donald Trump is set to bring his presidential campaign to Baltimore next week.
The real estate tycoon-turned-reality TV star-turned-Republican candidate is set to speak Monday at the Baltimore Convention Center. It’ll be the first time since spring 2015 that Trump has spoken here. He’s speaking at the convention for the National Guard, who also last amassed in Baltimore around that time.
Trump’s website doesn’t have many details about the speech, other than that it will start at 1 p.m. For a clue as to what he might say about the town he is in, let’s look at his prior remarks.
First there was that June, 2015, speech at the BWI Marriott, when he said the city has, “No spirit. None.”
He doubled down a couple of months later, saying the city was home to vicious gangs of illegals.
And Trump continued weighing in on events in the city this year. He called on State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby to self-prosecute after she dropped charges against the police who were accused in Freddie Gray’s death and brought up the city’s murder rate during his speech on how the country is going out of control at the Republican National Convention.
Sounds like a place where he’ll be welcomed with open arms.
