Trump is planning to visit the Fort McHenry National Monument for the holiday. The city’s mayor, Jack Young, said Trump’s travel would set a poor example for the city’s residents.

“That President Trump is deciding to pursue non-essential travel sends the wrong message to our residents, many of whom have been disproportionately impacted by the Covid-19 virus,” Young said in a statement he posted on Twitter. “I wish that the president, as our nation’s leader, would set a positive example and not travel during thing holiday weekend.”

Maryland Gov. Hogan lifts stay-at-home order, allows limited retail to resume

  Maryland Gov. Hogan lifts stay-at-home order, allows limited retail to resume Gov. Larry Hogan announced Wednesday he is lifting Maryland’s stay-at-home order effective at 5 p.m. Friday as the state has seen a slight two-week decline in hospitalizations due to the coronavirus pandemic. Hogan said he is replacing the order with a “Safer at Home” advisory that will not be enforced by the rule of law. It allows manufacturing, retail, haircuts and worship services to resume with limitations.“Marylanders will no longer be required to stay at home, but are strongly advised to stay at home, particularly older and more vulnerable Marylanders,” Hogan said. “If you can work from home, you should continue to do so.

Trump has a strained relationship with Baltimore. As part of a feud with the former chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Maryland Democrat Elijah Cummings, Trump has in the past criticized “tremendous corruption” in the city’s leadership, called it “drug-infested” and said its people “are living in hell.”

Cummings, whose district included part of the city, directed several probes of Trump’s administration and contributed to the inquiry that led to the president’s impeachment. He died last year.

In 2017 and 2018, Trump stayed in the Washington area for Memorial Day, making trips to Arlington National Cemetery across the Potomac River in northern Virginia to acknowledge U.S. military sacrifices. He was traveling in Japan on Memorial Day last year and made remarks to military personnel on a U.S. aircraft carrier.

The president has recently increased the pace of his travels as he spurs the country to set aside worries about the coronavirus outbreak and resume a close-to-normal economic and social life.
