President Donald Trump has had a tempestuous relationship with Baltimore. In a week of criticism last summer, he alleged billions of dollars in federal aid to the city had been “wasted” and “stolen." City officials disputed that claim.

The president returned to his criticism in an address to House Republicans at a Baltimore retreat in September. “We’re going to fight for the future of cities like Baltimore that have been destroyed by decades of failed and corrupt rule,” he said.

Baltimore’s representatives in Congress have been seeking more federal help to combat illegal drug use.

The late Rep. Elijah Cummings, a Baltimore Democrat, long promoted legislation that would provide $100 billion over 10 years for services to combat substance use disorders. The legislation is modeled after the Ryan White Act of 1990, which provided billions of federal dollars to combat the AIDS crisis.

The measure continues to be sponsored in the Senate by Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren, a presidential candidate, but it has not advanced in Congress.

Maryland has been receiving tens of millions of dollars from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services from a program designed to expand access to opioid treatment. The program seeks to address the opioid crisis, in part, by making federally-approved medications more widely available.
