The 72nd Baltimore City Council was sworn in Thursday, and their first official act was a vote to condemn statements made by President-elect Donald Trump.

Councilman Ryan Dorsey introduced the resolution saying he wanted to affirm Baltimore’s values by opposing what he called Trump’s divisive rhetoric "rooted in hate and prejudice."
