U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) had a damning response to Donald Trump reportedly calling Milwaukee a “horrible city” simply weeks earlier than the Republican National Convention begins there July 15.

Moore, whose congressional district consists of many of the metropolis, on Thursday informed MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell that the presumptive GOP presidential nominee’s remark was pure projection.

Trump himself is “a horrible person,” she mentioned, noting that he was lately convicted on dozens of felony costs in his hush cash trial.

“It’s not just these 34 felony counts, but he’s a sexual assaulter and there are 54 more counts out against him for really trying to undermine our elections and … inspiring an insurrection,” Moore mentioned, referencing the remaining costs in Trump’s upcoming felony trials and apparently citing the civil verdict in his sexual abuse trial. “So, he’s a horrible person.”

Some Trump apologists have prompt that he was referring to the town’s crime charge along with his slur, regardless of a pointy lower in homicides there lately.

But in her chat with O’Donnell, Moore mentioned: “I don’t know many people in Milwaukee who have 34 felony counts against them. So our crime rate sure is going to go up when he joins us in Milwaukee.”

“There you go. That’s right,” agreed O’Donnell.

“They had to find a city where Donald Trump wasn’t facing indictments, so Milwaukee was on the list,” he jokingly added.

On social media, in the meantime, Moore mentioned: “I have personally advocated with a bipartisan group to get extra funding for security for this convention. So it is a slap in the face to have my beloved city described as anything other than welcoming.”

In one other publish, she wrote that after the previous president has “settled in with his parole officer, I am certain he will discover that Milwaukee is a wonderful, vibrant and welcoming city full of diverse neighborhoods and a thriving business community.”
