Image via C-SPAN Donald Trump came to Philadelphia and lied about us. He almost didn’t. During a speech in front of congressional Republicans on Thursday at the Loews Hotel in Center City, he spoke about crime. “Right now too many families don’t feel secure,” Trump said. “Just look at the 30 largest cities.
