MAGA fan Scott Presler was tired of all the constant bickering in the media about Baltimore's numerous problems, so he personally decided to do something about it. Rather than simply complain or join the online chorus, he has organized a massive trash clean up of the city set to take place in the near future. Presler just wants to help out in any way that he can.
"I’m so tired of people saying, ‘We should do this, we should do that'....I was just like, ‘I’ve had, it. I’m going to go to Baltimore, even if it’s just me on a street corner picking up trash,'" he told The Epoch Times.
On Saturday, July 28, the activist told his online following that anybody who wanted to come to help clean up Baltimore was welcome. He encouraged Trump supporters to wear Trump gear but told The Epoch Times that anybody can participate when the event takes place.
"I just want the citizens of Baltimore to see [that] we do care. We do give a darn. And at the end of the day, we’re all American and if ya’ll are struggling in Baltimore and you guys need help, then we’re going to be there for you," he said.
"I don’t want this to be an anti-Rep. Cummings event. That’s not what this is about. This is about helping our fellow American citizens," he added.
"I’ve received so many volunteer requests, I haven’t even had time to message everyone back," Presler told Breitbart. "We have people coming from Virginia Beach, Virginia, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as well as local Baltimore residents."
Presler has not announced when the clean up will occur since he does not want any counteractivity to disturb the effort.
I want to confirm that, yes, I am organizing a trash clean up in Baltimore.— #ThePersistence (@ScottPresler) July 29, 2019
I've had so many volunteers reach out to me, it's been overwhelming.
Also, a very kind gentleman is willing to sponsor dumpsters for us.
This is really coming together.
"When I sent out the tweet on picking up trash in Baltimore, I expected it would be me and a few friends doing our part to clean up the city. I've been on the phone for the last 24 hours with people wanting to donate gloves and trash bags, and volunteers even want to come to Baltimore from out of state," Presler told Townhall.
"I never expected this outpouring of love, but I think people are hungry to do something positive," he continued. "That's what this event is all about. Americans helping Americans."
