People are freaking out over Donald Trump's ignorant comments about 'thugs'

Donald Trump expects people to take his possible presidential candidacy seriously, but he won't stop tweeting political death sentences — and his latest tweets on the Baltimore riots got a very bad reception.

Trump, who is known for his Twitter diatribes on multiple social issues, went off about the dire situation in the East Coast city: Rioting in reaction to the death of Freddie Gray, a young black man who died in police custody after officers refused him medical attention.

Unsurprisingly, people on Twitter freaked out and called Trump out for his racism.

Trump's comments come just days after he told a group in New Hampshire that he is "very close" and "very much inclined" to announcing his candidacy for president.

"The only negative I ever get is that people say I'm not going to run," he told "I don't need to do this. I can do other things, but I'm very close to making a decision. It will probably be in June or July, and I think a lot of people are going to be very happy."

Not those people on Twitter, that's for sure.
