This is one of those feel-good moments that make you proud to be an American.
This is what President Trump is working so hard for. This is how we should be lifting one another up.
Even though Rep. Elijah Cummings has abandoned Baltimore, the people of the city haven’t and other caring Americans haven’t either.
Nearly 200 people came out to Baltimore to help clean up the city.
According to the Daily Wire, on Monday, a group of Trump supporters led by conservative activist Scott Presler went to West Baltimore for a massive clean-up operation following tweets sent by President Donald Trump highlighting the dire conditions in the area.
While the residents were thankful for the overhaul — well over 100 volunteers came together to remove 12 tons of trash, according to Presler — the liberal media were, uh, irritated. The media attacked the activist as an “extremist,” questioned his motives, and scolded him for “reinforc[ing] the tired image that the poor people in this city can’t take care of their own neighborhoods.”
We're here in West Baltimore to pick up trash.
This isn't a Trump rally, nor an anti-Representative Cummings event.
Some are just plain skeptical that a Trump supporter could organize such an event out of pure altruism.
The Baltimore Sun reported, “It made for good photos, compelling videos and catchy Twitter hashtags. A group of conservatives rolled their pickup trucks into one of West Baltimore’s most impoverished neighborhoods Monday for a cleanup day. Loaded down with trash bags and shovels, they cleared alleyways of old tires, food containers, paper and other debris. They pulled up weeds and cut away overgrown grass. The group posted before and after pictures on social media showing their progress.
The effort was organized by pro-Trump activist Scott Presler. He claimed the event was not political. Yes, he was inspired to come by tweets from President Donald Trump describing the area, represented by U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, as a “rodent infested mess.” But the visit wasn’t about showing support or animosity for either man, he said.”
