Trump Insults D.C. to Get His Trial Moved. D.C. Rolls Its Eyes.

From a Washington Post story by Tom Jackman and Peter Hermann headlined “Trump insults D.C. to get his trial moved. The city rolls its eyes.”:

The dark imagery invoked by Donald Trump during his brief visit to the nation’s capital last week — “the filth and the decay … broken buildings” — renewed the stereotype of collapsing American cities as a means of calling for his federal indictment to be moved out of the District. It also reignited his hostile relationship with a city he said needed to be taken over by the federal government when he occupied the White House.
