The Mayor Of Philadelphia Just Tore President Trump Apart--We Can't Wait For His Response
Updated 6 months ago

President Trump is no stranger to criticism, but Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney has offered some of the harshest words yet about our commander-in-chief from an elected official. On Wednesday, November 22nd, the Mayor went off-script during a speech at Philadelphia's City Hall and made some memorable statements:

Mayor Kenney said of the President:

I’m just beside myself with with sadness because our president is a bully, our president is a punk and he just doesn’t get it. I don’t know where he was raised, but his family didn’t do a good job raising that guy.

He also said Trump was "the reason" our country has become one of "anger and divisiveness." 

Kenney was responding to the White House's decision to end temporary protected status for Haitians by July 2019. After a devastating hurricane hit Haiti in 2010, Haitian's have been granted the right to live and work in the U.S. without fear of deportation. This change, however, would force 59,000 to either become citizens, leave the country, or remain in the U.S. illegally. 

Kenney said the President's actions were "un-American" and suggested Trump should actually be the one to "get out" of the country. 

The immigrant community in Philadelphia is praising Kenney's words. As the Trump Presidency continues, it seems statements like these are becoming more and more likely. We can also look forward to President Trump's inevitable response on Twitter - whatever it is, I'm sure it will be understanding and well-said.
