We picked up 7 tons of trash in 10 hours.

The volunteers were largely smeared by the Baltimore Sun, writing “Whatever he says his motives were, Scott Presler’s presence in Baltimore reinforces the tired image that the poor people in this city can’t take care of their own neighborhoods.”

Pro-Trump activist and conservative commentator Scott Presler stepped-up his efforts to help the city of Baltimore this week; organizing a giant garbage removal operation following the President’s plea for help.
“MAGA fan Scott Presler was tired of all the constant bickering in the media about Baltimore’s numerous problems, so he personally decided to do something about it. Rather than simply complain or join the online chorus, he has organized a massive trash clean up of the city set to take place in the near future. Presler just wants to help out in any way that he can,” reports Town Hall.
“I’m so tired of people saying, ‘We should do this, we should do that’….I was just like, ‘I’ve had, it. I’m going to go to Baltimore, even if it’s just me on a street corner picking up trash,'” he told The Epoch Times.
“I just want the citizens of Baltimore to see [that] we do care. We do give a darn. And at the end of the day, we’re all American and if ya’ll are struggling in Baltimore and you guys need help, then we’re going to be there for you,” he said.
President Trump doubled-down on his fierce fight to clean up Baltimore’s out-of-control corruption Tuesday; saying residents have been “living in hell” and appreciate his efforts in recent days.

“I’m the least racist person there is anywhere in the world,” Trump told reporters at the White House.
“Those people are living in hell in Baltimore. They’re largely African American. You have a large African-American population, and they really appreciate what I’m doing and they’ve let me know it,” he added.
“No, I think I’m helping myself because I’m pointing out the tremendous corruption that’s taken place in Baltimore and other Democratic run cities,” Trump said before departing for Virginia.
BALTIMORE BACKLASH: Police Commissioner ‘Apologizes’ for ‘200 Years’ of Brutality
Baltimore’s Police Commissioner shocked local residents and the nation Thursday when he “apologized” for “200 years” of police brutality; sparking a fierce backlash from a region struggling to contain escalating gun violence.
Commissioner Darryl De Sousa addressed the crowd at a sold-out Hip Hop concert this week, asking the audience for just “20 seconds” to beg forgiveness for “all the things that the police have done.”
“I want to take about 20 seconds to apologize for all the things that the police have done dating back 200 years,” said De Sousa.
“Two hundred years ago, all the way to civil rights. All the way to the ’80s where crack was prevalent in the cities and it affected disproportionately African-American men. All the way to the ’90s. All the way to the 2000’s when we had zero tolerance,” he added.
The President of Baltimore’s Police Union slammed the Commissioner’s comments late Thursday night, saying it was not “appropriate.”
“I’m not sure that a blanket apology covering 200 years is appropriate. Law enforcement was created to protect and serve the citizenry despite race and that is what we strive to do, daily,” the union added.
BALTIMORE MAYHEM: Mayor Urges STORES TO CLOSE to Avoid Bloodshed
Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh took to the streets this week to speak with local business owners after a recent spike in murders; strangely suggesting grocery stores and other shops close early to avoid more bloodshed.
According to the Baltimore Sun, Pugh was strolling through West Baltimore when she stopped by a local convenience store to speak with employees; sitting behind bullet-proof plexiglass for their own safety.
“What time do you-all close?” asked the mayor.
““11:30,” said one employee.
“Isn’t that late?” she asked. “That’s a little late. It keeps the crowds around here. Nine o’clock is nice. We need you-all to close at 9 o’clock at night.”
Pugh found herself in hot water in April with murder rates on the rise after months of her Violence Reduction Initiative; a new strategy aimed at minimizing violent crime in one of nation’s most dangerous cities.
“We’re on top of it,” said the Democratic mayor. “We understand the intelligence. We know about the various gangs that are at war right now.
