WASHINGTON (AP) — Washington has never been a particularly friendly place for Donald Trump.

Trump told reporters he was “very sad” to see “the filth and the decay and all of the broken buildings” during his drive through the nation’s capital to the federal courthouse. Washington defenders feel Trump has always had a personal issue with the district. Heavily Democratic Washington is generally cool to Republican presidents but was distinctly hostile to the Trump administration. Trump’s team argues he can’t receive a fair trial in Washington.
