Young early in 2015 knocked Trump over his criticism of the city. The president assaulted the late Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), calling the long time legislator who passed away in October a “brutal bully” and explaining his bulk-black Baltimore district as a “rodent-infested mess.”
“If you want to help us, help us. Don’t talk about us. Send the resources that we need to rebuild America,” Young fired back at Trump at the time. “He’s talking about he wants to make America great again. Put the money in the cities that need it the most, and that way you can make America great again.”
