'I'd be happy to have him': Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings says Pres. Trump should come to Baltimore

After a week of President Donald Trump leveling criticisms at Baltimore and U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the congressman said he would welcome the president to come visit.

“I’d love for him to sit down and talk to the doctors at Johns Hopkins and University of Maryland and see the beautiful neighborhoods of our city, and I’d be happy to have him,” Cummings said at a community event Saturday near his Baltimore home.

1. Baltimore is a beautiful city.

I loved visiting when my brother lived there. All cities have their problem areas. I don't mean that as dismissive. Most cities are trying to solve their problems.
