Baltimore mayor urges Trump to reconsider Memorial Day visit to Fort McHenry

Source: Baltimore Sun

Baltimore Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young is urging President Donald Trump to reconsider his planned visit to the Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine on Memorial Day, in light of the stay-at-home order in place in the city to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

“I wish that the President, as our nation’s leader, would set a positive example and not travel during this holiday weekend,” Young said in a statement Thursday.

But the president has no intention of changing his plans, according to the White House.

“The brave men and women who have preserved our freedoms for generations did not stay home and the President will not either as he honors their sacrifice by visiting such a historic landmark in our Nation’s history,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said.

3. My fantasy: nobody goes to watch him and he has a miserable, lonely time.

He’s looking for a rally. May he fail to find an audience.

Dearest Martha,
As we await boarding at Dulles I have found one of my soldiers who likes to be called "THE DONALD" has contracted the bone spur and has decided to fly standby. I am most certain we will not see him in battle.
All my love, George
