Of course, Trump has found himself in hot water this week for comments he made about the Maryland city — ones in which he called Baltimore a “rodent-infested mess.”
Damon says he thinks Trump’s choices of words were a little harsh … but he tells TMZ Sports he agrees with 45 — saying back when he played in the MLB, he didn’t love hitting the road there.
“He’s not wrong,” Damon says … “Baltimore was one of the best places to visit when I broke into the league in ’95. And, at the end, we didn’t really, like, enjoy going back.”
Damon — who’s been an outspoken Trump supporter for years — added, “Towards the end, it started getting a little scarier.”
Johnny says Trump’s comments will actually HELP the city .. telling us he thinks the criticism should lead to a change in the area.
“I think Baltimore is a great town, and this is raising awareness and hopefully they can go in and spend the hard tax-paying dollars to actually make a difference.”
