Maryland Religious Leaders Criticize Trump for His Condemnation of Baltimore, Call on Him to ‘Stop Putting People Down’

A group of religious leaders in Maryland say President Donald Trump’s comments about the city of Baltimore were “horrible” and “demeaning.”

According to the Christian Post, the Ecumenical Leaders’ Group of Maryland, a group of leaders from many different religions, released a letter this week rebuking Trump for his comments.

“Recently, much to our dismay and profound sadness, you publicly slurred our beloved City of Baltimore in a tweet. We will not dignify the slur by repeating it. It was horrible, demeaning and beneath the dignity of a political leader who should be encouraging us all to strive and work for a more civil, just and compassionate society,” the leaders wrote in the letter.

Last weekend, Trump tweeted about Baltimore and one of its representatives, saying the district of U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings was a “dangerous … disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess.”

“Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA,” Trump tweeted on Saturday.
