“It’s been wasted. Its been stolen. They ought to take that beautiful waste of an oversight committee, go down to Baltimore and other democratic-run cities and take a look, see if you can find the billions that have been stolen.”
“Baltimore has been very badly mishandled for many years. As you know congressman Cummings has been there for a long time. It’s a corrupt city.
“There’s no question about it. All you have to do is look at the facts. The government has pumped in over the years billions and billions to no avail, to absolutely no avail.
“Baltimore is an example of what corrupt government leads to. Billions of dollars have been given, and I feel so sorry for the people of Baltimore. And if they ask me, we will get involved.

All you have to do is look at the past mayors in Baltimore and see what happened. No, I think I’m helping myself. And I’ll tell you what, the White House and myself have received more phone calls than I think on any other subject of people from Baltimore and other cities corruptly run by Democrats thanking me for getting involved.
“Those people are living in hell. They’re largely African heroin. We have a large African-American population, and they really appreciate what I’m doing and they’ve let me know it. They’ve really appreciate it.

“But people have called from Baltimore thanking me much. There’s all that money that’s been spent over 20 years has been stalling and waiting by people like Elijah Cummings…
“I am the least racist person there is anywhere in the world. When conmen I’ve known almost all my business life, because I had to deal with them unfortunately. Al Sharpton, he’s a racist. But when people — let me explain to you.
“What I’ve done for African-Americans in two and a half years, no president has been able to do anything like it. Unemployment at the lowest level in the history of our country for African-Americans. Nobody can beat that.
