Trump Was Right: Orkin Lists Baltimore as One of Most Rat-Infested US Cities

On Saturday President Trump took to twitter to demand an investigation of Rep. Elijah Cummings and his corrupt and “rat infested” Maryland district.

Earlier in the day Republican Kimberly Klacik was on FOX and Friends to talk about her video of rat-infested neighborhoods in Baltimore.

Trump was watching — And tweeted out about it.

Democrats were outraged at President Trump for daring to call Baltimore a rat-infested city.
Of course, they said it was racist.

But is Orkin racist?

According to the pest control company Baltimore, Maryland is one of the “rattiest cities” in the United States.

Patch.com reported:

Charm City is once again among America’s “Rattiest Cities,” according to a new report from pest control company Orkin, although it has shown progress in each of the past two years. Baltimore comes in at No. 9 on the company’s 2018 rankings released Monday.

This is the fourth year that Orkin has compiled the rankings, which are based on the number of rodent treatments the company performed from Sept. 15, 2017 to Sept. 15, 2018. It includes both residential and commercial treatments.

Baltimore dropped one slot from last year, when it was ranked eighth; two years ago it was No. 6 on the Orkin list. The city has undertaken several rat control measures, including the issuance of municipal garbage cans to contain waste.

Congratulations Democrats! You just defended the putrid and insanitaryconditions in Baltimore.
