CBS Baltimore: By Golly, Our Murder Rate Actually IS Higher Than Guatemala, Honduras And El Salvador
[HOT AIR] The ongoing social media battle between President Trump and Congressman Elijah Cummings of Maryland has drawn in all sorts of supporters on both sides and provided more than a few amusing moments. One of the most recent spun off from a claim that the President made about Baltimore (Cummings’ home town) having a higher murder rate than some of the most dangerous places in the western hemisphere. It actually came from the White House account, not Trump’s personal one.

As usual, this had heads exploding among democrats who rushed to defend Cummings and claim that the President was "lying" again. Unfortunately for them, at least a few media outlets did their homework and went to fact check the numbers. CBS in Baltimore did the required digging and was forced to concede the unpleasant truth. The President was right. (Emphasis added)
