VIDEO: Almost 200 Trump Supporters Clean Up 12 Tons Of Trash In West Baltimore



You are literally dead inside if this one doesn’t warm your heart and soul. Scott Pressler is a conservative Trump supporter. He organized almost 200 Trump supporters to clean up 12 tons of trash in West Baltimore. Residents thanked him and President Trump for bringing attention to Baltimore’s distress. It wasn’t a political event… it was a neighborly and caring one, even though this all started with a dust-up between Trump and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD).

Scott Presler’s Twitter account reveals that he spent two years of his life “working to defeat Hillary,” and he also plans to help re-elect President Trump in 2020. With actions like this one, he will do it too. “[It is] not a Trump rally; this is not about Rep. Cummings; this is simply about Americans stepping up to help Americans,” Presler told Fox News.

Pressler descended on Baltimore with approximately 170 volunteers in tow. They brought trash bags and shovels with them. By the end of the eight-hour session, the group had collected 12 tons of trash. This is who we are and it is epic.

“It’s always been like really trashy and like I showed the before picture what we were dealing with,” one woman in the neighborhood said in a video posted on Presler’s Twitter account. “I’m elated. I really am. I’m really happy. I want to cry but I’m not a cryer so I’ll just keep smiling.”

“You all are doing an awesome job,” the woman said. “Thank you so much.”

From Breitbart:

“Before and after photographs show a clean alley once filled with mountains of trash.

“Another video shows volunteers — whom Presler said came from all over the country and from around Maryland — picking up trash.

“But the Baltimore Sun editorial board was offended by the effort and sent out a critical tweet about it.

“Whatever he says his motives were, Scott Presler’s presence in Baltimore reinforces the tired image that the poor people in this city can’t take care of their own neighborhoods,” the Sun tweeted.

“We assume it was pure motives that led a Trump supporter to launch a clean-up in Cummings’ district,” the Sun tweet said. “Conservatives cleaning up a Baltimore neighborhood makes for a good photo opp, but does little to address the real problems.”

“Call us skeptical,” the editorial in the newspaper said about Presler’s claim that the event was not political:

Look, we appreciate anyone who is willing to roll up their sleeves to help Baltimore. More than 170 people came from all over the country and cleaned up nearly 12 tons of trash, according to Mr. Presler’s Twitter feed. He doesn’t post any photos of the totality of the trash, so we’ll have to take his word for it.

But if this was all about “Americans helping Americans,” why all the videos of Baltimore residents thanking Mr. Trump for bringing attention to the issue? We happen to know that not everybody in West Baltimore feels that way. And in the same posts as the videos, why the frequent reminders that this is in act [sic] Mr. Cummings’ district?

“But Presler isn’t deterred. He told Fox News that he is already working on a similar cleanup in New Jersey and Los Angeles.

“We want to take this nationwide and show people we care,” Presler said.”

With this kind of work ethic and caring outlook, Presler is destined for great things. I love it.

Pressler learned from talking to local residents that “the people of Baltimore love their country and love their city and they’re proud to live there,” but the government isn’t doing enough to solve the trash problem there, specifically illegal dumping at abandoned buildings.

The city has been plagued with trash in its streets for years and its shrinking population has left some 16,000 uninhabitable empty houses. Many of the homes are in an unsafe condition, and the city owns many of them, but only comes once a year to clean up the alleys, Presler was told. Running water, rats, and cockroaches are major problems in these neighborhoods. Not to mention crime and poverty.

“Some people were believing that the people of Baltimore just don’t care or they want to live that way,” he said. “And that’s just not true. They don’t want to live that way. I think they just needed somebody to show love and that’s what we did.”

“I’m so tired of people saying, ‘We should do this, we should do that’ … I was just like, ‘I’ve had it. I’m going to go to Baltimore, even if it’s just me on a street corner picking up trash,’” Presler said in an interview.

Pressler tweeted out a notice on July 28th to his more than 300,000 followers on Twitter, asking if anybody wanted to join him. By the next day, he had almost 100 volunteers, with about half of them from Baltimore and the rest from across the country.

Presler said he’s been contacted by a volunteer who’s putting together another cleanup in Baltimore and already has 30 volunteers. Presler would like to make it a monthly event. Another man is putting together a similar event in Los Angeles. Presler plans to also help with that effort.

This is the kind of person the left labels as a ‘deplorable’. Perhaps they should stop criticizing and sniping at Pressler like The Sun did and get off their collective asses and help clean up these cities and neighborhoods. These are the forgotten men and women that President Trump is fighting for.

The group is moving so fast, it’s hard for us to keep up!
