Trump Continues Racist Attack On Elijah Cummings

President Donald Trump  has doubled down on his condemnation of Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) and the city of Baltimore.

Cummings, who chairs the House Oversight and Reform Committee and is a vocal critic of the president’s, recently expressed his disdain of the Trump administration’s treatment of migrants at detention centers at the U.S.-Mexico border. 

In response, Trump attacked the congressman with an unsubstantiated allegation of corruption, denigrated the city of Baltimore and defended his immigration policies: 


Trump’s comments about Baltimore are  not corroborated   by available data . Although the city does have some of the  highest rates of violent crime  in the U.S., it isn’t considered the most dangerous city in the nation. 

Business Insider also reported  last year that Baltimore’s economy was average when compared to other large cities in the U.S. Among the 40 largest metro areas in the country, Baltimore’s economy ranked 26th.

Trump has faced intense backlash for his criticism of the black congressman and his characterization of Cummings’ majority-black district as a “rodent infested mess.” 


House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) decried Trump’s remarks as  “racist”  and the  Baltimore Sun’s editorial board  skewered the president for his comments, saying it was “better to have some vermin living in your neighborhood” than to be one.   The hashtag  #WeAreBaltimore trended on Twitter  over the weekend as residents new and old pushed back against Trump’s censure and expressed their affection for Charm City. 

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) also defended Cummings against Trump’s latest tirade on Monday:

Given the obsession of @ realDonaldTrump with Rep Elijah Cummings, it's clear that @ POTUS is scared of @ RepCummings and the Oversight Committee.

I know my friend Elijah will stand tall against Trump's bullying and follow the facts wherever they lead. https:// twitter.com/realDonaldTrum p/status/1156017961766756353

Baltimore’s numbers are the worst in the United States on Crime and the Economy. Billions of dollars have been pumped in over the years, but to no avail. The money was stolen or wasted. Ask Elijah Cummings where it went. He should investigate himself with his Oversight Committee!

Elijah Cummings never even went to the Southern Border and then he screams at the very good people who, despite Congresses failure to fix the Loopholes and Asylum, make it work (crossings are way down and the Wall is being built). Even with zero Dem help, Border getting strong!

See how he accuses others of what he is doing himself?  

'The money was stolen or wasted. Ask Elijah Cummings where it went.'

Where did the billions for the border wall go when no wall is being built?

Good for Trump. He's not afraid to call corrupt blowhard bully assholes out by name, regardless of race.

Cummings should come clean or face investigation about the missing money
