Friday night on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin explained why Democrats have to band together to defend Rep. Elijah Cumings, D-Md., and his West Baltimore district from President Donald Trump's criticisms: Because Democrat policies are destroying America's cities and have been for some time.
"The fact of the matter is the Democrats must defend each other in their handling of these various metropolitan areas, because these various metropolitan areas have been in control of the Democrat Party for half a century or more," Levin explained. "In the case of Baltimore, since the 1940s."
"And they are unraveling, the civil societies are collapsing," Levin continued of Democrat-run major cities. "They attack their own police forces. They appoint liberal activist judges. They keep raising taxes. They keep pushing out individuals who pay taxes. And so you have the decline — severe decline — of living standards in these communities. Not because of race, not because of the federal government, not because of rich people: Because of the Democrat Party and those who run these cities."
Levin went on to point out that "Baltimore's not alone" and mentioned the problems of Democrat-run cities Philadelphia, Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago. "Who runs these cities? Republicans don't run these cities. Democrats run these cities."
"And so it is," the host concluded. "The president of the United States talks about a rat-infested city like Baltimore, that it's disgusting what's happening in these cities, we know exactly what he meant. The nation knows exactly what he means; in fact, the Democrats know exactly what he means."
