Baltimore Mayor Bernard "Jack" Young, has slammed President Trump over his attack on the city of Baltimore and Congressman Elijah Cummings.

"No president in modern history of the office of the president has done any childish behavior like this president has exhibited. If he really wants to, he needs to send us federal assistance, not only to Baltimore but cities around this country, that are in the same situation that Baltimore is in," Young told CNN.

"He's the most powerful man on the face of the Earth as president of the United States of America. This is below a president to do these kind of things. He should be uniting this country instead of racially dividing us. A president has never in my lifetime exhibited this type of behavior. He's alienated our allies around the country. What else is he going to do?"

The Baltimore Mayor also says that Trump has never once reached out to him or voiced his concerns for the city:

"He has never reached out. He had a pledge. He was going to do infrastructure. We're still waiting on that. We have an aging infrastructure in the city of Baltimore for unfunded mandate by the EPA for us to correct it, and we have to constantly raise water rates on the poor people of the city of Baltimore. We're a poor city. Do we have, you know, problems? Yeah. We have problems with crime and everything else, just like any other major city, just like the city that his person — Mitch McConnell represents has these problems."
