President Donald Trump will visit Baltimore on Thursday to give a speech at the 2019 House Republican Conference Member Retreat, a White House spokesperson confirmed to TPM.

The confirmation settled the question as to whether Trump would attend the biennial retreat after he derided the majority black city as a “very dangerous and filthy place” during his series of racist attacks against Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD).

Likely inflamed by Cummings’ investigations into his finances as House Oversight Committee chairman, Trump launched the attacks against the Maryland Democrat and his district in late July.
