Trump Attacks Elijah Cummings As ‘Brutal Bully’ From ‘Rodent Infested’ District
The president’s tweets targeting the House Oversight Committee head are the latest in a series of attacks on lawmakers of color.

President Donald Trump slammed one of his leading congressional opponents, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), in a Saturday morning Twitter rant calling him a “brutal bully” and berating his majority-black Baltimore district as a “rodent infested mess.”

It’s the latest in a series of attacks in which the president has used language widely condemned as racist to insult a nonwhite member of Congress, this time prompted by Cummings’ comments about inhumane conditions at the southern border.

“Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous,” Trump wrote.

The president went on to defend conditions at the border as “clean, efficient & well run,” deriding Cummings’ city as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess” and a “very dangerous & filthy place.”

Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA......​
....As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place​

Trump followed up the tweets with a third post containing unsubstantiated accusations of corruption and questioning why there is “so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States.”

In a response to Trump later that morning, Cummings tweeted, “Mr. President, I go home to my district daily. Each morning, I wake up, and I go and fight for my neighbors. It is my constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the Executive Branch. But, it is my moral duty to fight for my constituents.”

Mr. President, I go home to my district daily. Each morning, I wake up, and I go and fight for my neighbors.​
It is my constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the Executive Branch. But, it is my moral duty to fight for my constituents.​

The president’s tweets were rebuked by Baltimore Mayor Jack Young, who released a statement calling the disparagement of the city and Cummings “completely unacceptable.”

“Mr. Trump’s rhetoric is hurtful and dangerous to the people he’s sworn to represent,” he said. “As the Mayor of Baltimore, I won’t stand for anyone, not even the alleged Leader of the Free World, attacking our great City or our representative to Congress.”

Furthering his condemnation, Young called Trump a “disappointment to the people of Baltimore, our country, and to the world.”

Trump’s remarks about the congressman come on the heels of his series of attacks on four other lawmakers of color ― Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.).

In tweets written nearly two weeks ago, Trump urged them to “go back” to the “totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” a remark similar to his comments about Cummings’ district.

In 2017, at the start of Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, Trump lashed out against black Rep. John Lewis’ (D-Ga.) district as “in horrible shape,” “falling apart” and “crime infested,” mirroring his recent remarks.

The president’s Saturday tirade appears to have been inspired by a “Fox & Friends” segment that aired just an hour before he posted the tweets. The program painted a dark picture of Cummings’ city, claiming that “living conditions at the border are better than most areas in his district, the city lined with abandoned buildings and trash on the streets.”

The Democrats, are playing politics with the border issue, the detention centers have been there since the Obama days, but now that it's Trump who's in office, the centers are suddenly his problem. But Trump being a cunning white trash mutherfucker, he's wiping the floor with their faces by pointing put their hypocrisy. These lawmakers come from shithole places and instead of them articulating the issues that touch on their people's lives, they are up Trump's ass yelling about illegal migrants. Which country allows people just immigrate without any checks? Who wants to see a US dominated by Mexicans and all these folks from shithole countries??

But it's true. Baltimore is a dangerous city to live in.
Baltimore , Detroit, Chicago ndiyo Kayole za America
So assumes someone who has probably never been to any of these cities. That's like someone who's never been to Kenya saying that Nairobi is the most dangerous city in Kenya!
Hata DC has a 'ghetto' part (south east), just a few kms from Capitol Hill! Both Baltimore and Chicago (can't say much about Detroit because nilipitia tu) have a very good/expensive side, and a low-income side (inner cities with higher rates of crime/drugs/jobless people). I've visited the Baltimore Inner Harbor- very lively and beautiful place, for many years and I've never had any bad experiences (except expensive parking!). Most homicides are gang-related (i.e very selective).
Now, back to Drump........ a New Yorker referring to another city as "rat infested"? Very funny because NY has some giant rats and a few restaurants were ordered closed some years back because of the rat-menace.

You are right, I've never been there. How are things over there, will Trump make it?
