Jackie Cornish, a founder of the Druid Heights [west Bal'more site] community development corporation [BWAH!] more than 40 years ago, said she hoped Trump and Cummings could put their collective power together [wut] and work for the good of the city.

As long as he's president, we're trying to lift him up." [wut]
