Donald Trump reportedly considers Oakland, Calif., and Ferguson, Mo., to be among the most dangerous places on earth.

In an interview with The New York Times, the Queens-born GOP presumptive presidential nominee was asked what he was the most dangerous place he's ever visited, and jokingly replied: Brooklyn.

"No, there are places in America that are among the most dangerous in the world," he then responded, turning serious. "You go to places like Oakland. Or Ferguson. The crime numbers are worse. Seriously."

Politico, citing the latest compilation of the world's 50 most dangerous cities in terms of homicides from the Citizens Council for Public Safety and Criminal Justice in Mexico, said just four U.S. cities made the list.

St. Louis is in 15th place with a murder rate of 59.23 per 100,000 inhabitants, Baltimore has the 19th-highest homicide rate, at 54.98 per 100,000, followed by Detroit in 28th place (43.89 per 100,000) and New Orleans (41.44 per 100,000), according to Politico.
