President Trump was met with widespread protests Thursday as he traveled to Baltimore for a House Republican retreat. It was Trump’s first visit to Baltimore since he insulted the city in a July tweetstorm as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess,” adding, “no human being would want to live there.” It was part of an attack on House Oversight Chair Elijah Cummings, one of the most prominent African Americans in Congress. Thursday’s protests against Trump featured a giant inflatable effigy depicting the president as a rodent clutching a cellphone.
