Donald Trump went after President Obama in a Twitter tirade on Tuesday, blasting the POTUS for not doing anything to stop the violent riot in Baltimore.
As you know, the city of Baltimore has been in violent uproar since last week over the death of Freddie Gray, who died in police custody on April 19 after a violent arrest almost two weeks ago resulted in a broken spine and a shattered larynx. The protests were peaceful until after Gray’s burial on Saturday, when they turned violent. The violence reached alarming levels on Monday, prompting a state of emergency to be declared in the city on Tuesday.
Reacting to the developments, Trump took Obama to the cleaners for his alleged indifference towards Baltimore, tweeting, ‘Our great African American President hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore!’
‘President Obama, you have a big job to do. Go to Baltimore and bring both sides together. With proper leadership, it can be done! Do it.’
He also went after the Baltimore Police Department, writing, ‘Now that the ineffective Baltimore Police have allowed the city to be destroyed, are the U.S. taxpayers expected to rebuild it (again)?’ before slamming the city’s mayor: ‘The Mayor of Baltimore said she wanted to give the rioters “space to destroy” – another real genius!’
Many Twitter users did not like Trump’s outburst, with many people calling him an ‘idiot,’ a ‘troll’ and ‘very rude and racist.’
‘I really want to spit on Donald Trump He is sad,’ wrote one particularly enraged user.
