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.
Wow, 15 policemen hurt in Baltimore, some badly! Where is the National Guard. Police must get tough, and fast! Thugs must be stopped.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 28, 2015
Blatant and rampant property destruction in Baltimore as the police stand by and watch. Should be a lesson on how NOT to handle riots. SAD!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 28, 2015
Our great African American President hasn't exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 28, 2015
Now that the ineffective Baltimore Police have allowed the city to be destroyed, are the U.S. taxpayers expected to rebuild it (again)?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 28, 2015
The Mayor of Baltimore said she wanted to give the rioters "space to destroy" - another real genius!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 28, 2015
Our country has to come together. We have to start working with, and really liking, each other. The whole world is watching Baltimore.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 28, 2015
President Obama, you have a big job to do. Go to Baltimore and bring both sides together. With proper leadership, it can be done! Do it.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 28, 2015
The best social program, by far, is a JOB! Our jobs are being taken away from us by China and many other countries - incompetent leader.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 28, 2015
Unsurprisingly, people on Twitter freaked out and called Trump out for his racism.

@realDonaldTrump racism is literally your second language.— Tameka Alice (@tamekasaysitall) April 28, 2015
@realDonaldTrump thank you for informing us that property is more important than a human being and our black president is to blame for it— Tameka Alice (@tamekasaysitall) April 28, 2015
@realDonaldTrump to think I used to look up to you. "Thugs" really? That's unfair.— Ms.Alexandra-Madonna (@Llyxee) April 28, 2015

Your ignorance is why no matter how rich you are or what u accomplish, you'll never be respected. @realDonaldTrump— Josh (@ScruffDaddy_) April 28, 2015
@realDonaldTrump you're an idiot. What would you do differently and what does being black have to do with it?— Zachary Webb (@zachwwbb) April 28, 2015
"The only negative I ever get is that people say I'm not going to run," he told WMUR.com. "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.
