President Trump on Saturday branded Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., a “brutal bully” for his treatment of border patrol officials at committee hearings– and described Cumming’s district as “far even worse and more unsafe” than the southern border.
” Associate, Elijah Cummings has been a harsh bully, shouting and shouting at the excellent men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when really his Baltimore district is FAR EVEN WORSE and more unsafe,” he tweeted Saturday early morning.

Trump was apparently referring to Cumming’s questioning of border authorities in his function as chairman of the Home Oversight Committee. This month, he yelled at acting Homeland Security chief Kevin McAleenan for stating the department was doing its “best” when it concerns the humanitarian crisis at the border.
” What does that suggest? What does that mean when a child is being in their own feces, can’t take a shower? Begin guy,” he yelled. “What’s that about? None people would have our children in that position. They are humans.”
Cummings later questioned whether there was an “empathy deficit,” a remark that appeared to anger McAleenan, who noted the representatives make more than 4,000 rescues a year.
The comments might have also angered Trump, who on Saturday stated that the detention focuses at the border are “tidy, effective and well run, just really crowded.” He then compared that to the conditions in Cumming’s district.

” Cumming[‘s] District is a horrible, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, possibly he could help tidy up this extremely unsafe & filthy place,” Trump tweeted, before requiring an examination into why Baltimore got so much federal funding.

” Why is so much money sent out to the Elijah Cummings district when it is thought about the worst run and most harmful anywhere in the United States. No human being would want to live there. Where is all this cash going? Just how much is taken? Investigate this corrupt mess right away!”
Cummings recently likewise said that there was “no doubt” that Trump is a racist after the president’s tweets about the four freshman congresswomen referred to as “The Team” and said they need to “return and help fix the totally broken and criminal activity plagued places from which they came.”

” When I hear those things, it takes me back,” Cummings said in referral to segregation in the 1960 s. Cummings went on to compare the president’s tweets to his own experience in 1960’s Baltimore when he attempted to incorporate a public pool.
” I heard the very same sort of chants, ‘Go house, you do not belong here,'” Cummings said on ABC’s “Today.” “I’m not the only person of color who has actually had those type of experiences.”
