President Donald Trump named West Baltimore & # 39; ravaged rat and rodent & # 39; And & # 39; nasty & # 39;
Homeowner Crystal Christian told WBAL she has & # 39; no idea why someone would do that with something that lives in a house & # 39 ;.
She added: “I hope that whoever does it, I hope that their heart feels good. Because mine isn't, mine hurts now because you've taken me away all my life. & # 39;
Normandy Avenue, Mt. Holly, Lyndhurst, Allendale and Franklin streets and Wildwood Parkway would all have been targeted.

Trump turned his anger on Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Monday when he opened a third front in his Baltimore fight after the 2015 Democrat had compared Baltimore to a third world country.
Sanders criticized Trump in an interview on Sunday morning because he was in a predominantly black district, calling it rat-ravaged and after Rep. Elijah Cummings, who represents the district since 1996 in the American House of Representatives.
& # 39; Crazy Bernie Sanders recently equated the city of Baltimore with a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY! Based on that statement, I assume that Bernie should now be called a racist, just like a republican would if he used that term and that standard! & # 39; he stormed.

Trump further claimed that he would gladly help the leaders of the urban area to clean up the city if they asked for his help.
& # 39; The fact is that Baltimore can be brought back, perhaps even to new heights of success and glory, but not with King Elijah and that crew. When the Baltimore leaders want to see the city rise again, I'm in a very nice oval-shaped office waiting for your call! he tweeted.
Trump & # 39; s attack on Sanders was part of a third day of anger against Cummings, with whom he fights over border security.
