Trump to stop in Baltimore weeks after denigrating city

FILE - In this Aug. 15, 2019 file photo, President Donald Trump acknowledges the crowd after speaking at a campaign rally in Manchester, N.H. Trump will visit Baltimore less than two months after he derided the majority-black congressional district that includes the city as a "disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess" where "no human being would want to live." Trump's Thursday, Sept. 12, visit will be limited to a hotel overlooking the city's Inner Harbor, where he will deliver dinner remarks before Republican members of Congress gathered for a retreat.

BALTIMORE (AP) — Months after President Donald Trump derided the congressional district that includes Baltimore as a "disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess," groups appalled by his attacks plan to protest his expected appearance Thursday before Congressional Republicans on an annual retreat on the city's waterfront.

Trump's visit will be limited to a speech to the Republicans at the hotel hosting the event. He is not scheduled to tour any neighborhoods.
