Trump decries ‘wasted money’ on inner cities, tweaks Democratic rivals at Ohio campaign rally

by Gregg Re | Fox News  |  Published on August 2, 2019

President Trump tore into his Democratic rivals for the presidency at a campaign rally in Cincinnati Thursday night, but dialed back his criticisms of the so-called “Squad” of freshman Democratic lawmakers in the first rally since his supporters drew bipartisan condemnation last month by engaging in an impromptu “Send her back!” chant directed at Somali-born Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

Almost immediately, Trump charged that the “Democrat party is now being led by four left-wing extremists who reject everything that we hold dear” — an apparent reference to the “Squad.” The comment drew jeers, but no chanting, from attendees.

The president pointedly did not name and criticize each member of the “Squad,” as he did at the previous rally in Greenville, N.C.

Trump did, however, condemn what he called the “wasted money” that has led to “blight” in inner cities run by Democrats. But he initially declined to specify which cities he was referring to, because as he put it, “we want no controversy.”
