President Trump’s attack on Maryland Rep. Elijah E. Cummings for the rat-infested conditions of Baltimore (in Mr. Cummings’ district) is a well-deserved slam against the Democratic representative for the filth and abhorrent health situation in that city (“Trump: Cummings ‘should investigate himself’ for ‘stolen or wasted’ Baltimore funds,” Web, July 30). In another Democrat-governed city, Los Angeles, the high rate of homelessness and other lousy conditions are leading to the emergence of the bubonic plague.

As a leader in his position, Mr. Trump is right for calling out the conditions that have been allowed to fester — by Democrats — in these hapless cities. Contrary to the charges of racism from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others on the left, Mr. Trump is targeting the wantonness, filth and deathly conditions in the devastation created by Democrats in cities such as Baltimore, Los Angeles and San Francisco. This last one, with some of the worst homelessness in the nation, is on Mrs. Pelosi’s turf.
