Trump Rages: Rep. Elijah Cummings Is The Real Racist

NBC News reports:

President Donald Trump on Sunday doubled down on criticizing House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and his Baltimore-area congressional district. “Congressman Elijah Cummings has done a very poor job for his district and the City of Baltimore,” he tweeted on Sunday, claiming that the congressman has “failed badly.” Later Sunday, Trump called Cummings, who is black, a “racist.”

Sunday’s outburst came after a day of heated rhetoric from the president lobbed at Cummings. Early Saturday, Trump referred to Cummings’ district as “a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess” and said that “no human being would want to live there.” Top Democrats as well as prominent Baltimoreans swiftly rebuked Trump’s comments as “racist,” “disgraceful,” and “dangerous.” Trump on Sunday responded to criticism of his comments by accusing Democrats of playing the “race card.”
