"Give me a place that you think that's pretty bad," Trump said, asking members of the audience to think of a country that could have a higher homicide rate than Baltimore.

"I believe it's higher than Afghanistan.

In our country.

"Democrats have wanted to spend hundreds of billions of dollars on illegal migrants instead of supporting their own struggling communities," he said.

"No good, no good."
