A recent ad created by Kimberly Klacik who’s running for the 7th District of Maryland which covers half of Baltimore recently went viral and even got the attention of President Trump.
The video shows what Baltimore looks like after it has been run by Democrats for 53 years.
Throughout the video, Klacik describes the destruction the Democrats have done to destroy the once-great city.
Here is the video below:
Democrats don’t want you to see this.
They’re scared that I’m exposing what life is like in Democrat run cities.

Here is Trump’s response to the video:
Kimberly will work with the Trump Administration and we will bring Baltimore back, and fast. Don’t blow it Baltimore, the Democrats have destroyed your city! https://t.co/PDdjgxbIHu

Our friends at Fox News had this to say about Kimberly Klacik running for the 7th District:
President Trump Tuesday praised the Republican woman running for the late Rep. Elijah Cummings’ former Baltimore seat as someone who will help “bring Baltimore back.”
“Kimberly will work with the Trump Administration and we will bring Baltimore back, and fast,” the president said of Kimberly Klacik, 38, who is running against Rep. Kweisi Mfume, 71. Mfume defeated her in April’s special election. They will now face each other again in November.
“Don’t blow it Baltimore, the Democrats have destroyed your city!” Trump added.
Klacik gained attention this week after a campaign ad she posted walking the streets of what she calls the “real” Baltimore: “crumbling infrastructure,” “abandoned homes” and “crime” went viral with hundreds of thousands of views.
“Do you care about Black lives? The people that run Baltimore don’t,” Klacik says in the video titled “Black Lives Don’t Matter To Democrats” as she walks through empty streets.
Her video also got attention from other prominent Republicans, including Donald Jr. and Eric Trump, Trump senior adviser Brad Parscale and Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, who wrote, “Wow. Just wow.” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, called it “strong.”
Trump has been sharply critical of Democrats’ leadership in Baltimore in the past, including Cummings, calling the city once a “rodent infested mess.”
“I really just want to get in office and show people that you [can] have a better quality of life,” Klacik told Laura Ingraham Tuesday. “It is possible, especially if you vote Republican.”
Klacik has excited Republicans over potentially flipping the seat, but political scientist Matthew Crenson called her bid for the deeply blue district “practically impossible,” according to WJZ-TV.

Wbal reported Trump’s response to Klacik’s ad:
Republican Kimberly Klacik, a candidate for the late Rep. Elijah Cummings’ seat in Congress, released a new ad.
The ad, which has since gone viral, attacks Baltimore City’s Democratic leadership.
“I’m Kim Klacik, and I’m running for Congress because I actually care about black lives. All black lives matter, our communities matter, Baltimore matters,” Klacik says in the ad.
As of Wednesday morning, the video posted to twitter had received over 6 million views.
President Donald Trump also tweeted the video with the caption, “Kimberly will work with the Trump Administration and we will bring Baltimore back, and fast. Don’t blow it Baltimore, the Democrats have destroyed your city!”
Klacik is running against current Rep. Kweisi Mfume, a Democrat who won the district’s special election in April.
Kimberly Klacik will face Elijah Cummings in the November election. Hopefully, Baltimore will turn into a red district and Kimberly will be able to make a video of what a Republican city looks like.
