War Words Between Trump and Cummings Escalates

Never one to back down, President Donald J. Trump ramped up his feud with House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., calling the congressman “racist,” not long after critics had claimed the President’s initial tweets about Cummings were racist themselves.

After the series of tweets directed at Cummings on Saturday, where he called Cummings congressional district a roach and rat infested dump that “no human beings would want to live in,” Trump twisted the dagger Sunday afternoon, tweeting, “If racist Elijah Cummings would focus more of his energy on helping the good people of his district, and Baltimore itself, perhaps progress could be made in fixing the mess that he has helped to create over many years of incompetent leadership.”

He added, “His radical ‘oversight’ is a joke!”

On Saturday, after Trump’s first attack on Cummings, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rose to her fellow Democrat’s defense. “We all reject racist attacks against [Cummings] and support his steadfast leadership,” Pelosi tweeted Saturday.

Trump parried Pelosi’s thrust and jabbed back, “There is nothing racist in stating plainly what most people already know, that Elijah Cummings has done a terrible job for the people of his district, and of Baltimore itself. Dems always play the race card when they are unable to win with facts. Shame!”

Later Sunday, Trump pointed out that “African American unemployment is the lowest (best) in the history of the United States,” under his administration.

You Should Be Thanking Me!

According to Fox News, Trump went on to say he was “Waiting for Nancy and Elijah to say, ‘Thank you, Mr. President!’”

Neither Cummings nor Pelosi has yet to respond directly to Fox News’ request for comment.

Among Trump’s tweets Saturday, one included a video purportedly showing blight in Baltimore. He asked the congressman, “why don’t you focus on your district!?”

Cummings responded to Trump’s initial criticism, however, writing in a tweet, “Mr. President, I go home to my district daily. Each morning, I wake up, and I go and fight for my neighbors.”

He added, “It is my constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the Executive Branch. But, it is my moral duty to fight for my constituents.”

Trump also upped the ante on Monday, dragging political lightning rod, Rev. Al Sharpton into the fray,  when he blasted Sharpton as a “con man,” claiming he “hates whites & cops,” after the MSNBC host said he would travel to Baltimore amid the controversy over the President’s comments about the city and its Democratic lawmakers.

Sharpton tweeted Sunday evening that he would travel to Baltimore to “address Trump’s remarks & bi-partisan outrage in the black community” over them. Trump responded by slamming Sharpton, saying they have known each other for decades and used to attend fights together. But the President did not pull any punches when weighing in on Sharpton’s character.

    Sharpton is taking a chance going into the inner city of Baltimore. He’ll be lucky to come out of it.
    Unless of course, he means the other side of Baltimore, where the affluent live.

    The President is absolutely correct in what he said about the city . What isnt being said is the fact that Cummings got 16 Billion dollars jusy last year to revitlize this district and none of that money seems to have been spent on the city of Baltimore at all . So ask everyone . WHERE IS THE MONEY

    Trump is correct. These con men have been looting and pillaging wherever they rule. When someone speaks truth about them, they get ‘offended’, they get nasty, they hurl insults.

    Democrats justify their existence by ‘fighting’ for the poor, mainly by looting the tax coffers and buying themselves mansions. The more poor people they get to ‘fight’ for, the more votes they get. They try to make as many poor people as possible, upon whose backs they stand to enjoy an elitist’s luxuried life.

    People “of color” do not own the term “racist”, exclusively. Anyone of any skin color can qualify as a “racist” What is constantly on the minds and tongues of “race sensitive” individuals is who to call a “racist. But, the name-callers are unconscious of the fact that they too, are “racists”.
    A solution to the question of “racism” or the naming of others as “racists” is to not weaponize the word,for its users and abusers who insult with such a title are most likely “racists” themselves.
    Who would know a racist better when seeing one, than the person who is a qualified racist, himself?

    Racism is defined as promotion of one race over another for gain. No one is exempt. Nadler has said no one is above the law, so why does he think that because he is black he is exempt.

    WOW! What a surprise! A. DemonCrap “Congressman” playing the race card!……….NOT! It’s 1 of ONLY 3 things that THE Party of Satan, aka DemonCraps, is good at! The other 2 being, blaming Donald Trump for EVERYTHING that is wrong with our country, and the other is, constantly making false accusations against him. As with everything else them damn DemonCraps throw at him, he’s right again. The conditions in Baltimore, and in Cummings’ district, are appalling, and getting worse, not better! So Cummings can deny it all he wants to. Doesn’t change the facts. Just ask the people who live there!

    Most of the Democrtas have become a stumbling block to what is a true and genuine democracy at the time they are trying to carry out a tried communist socialist using the correct democratic and constitutional state with the intentions of wanting to impose an agenda when they really do not have a reputation are of double standards and they really like money, luxury and comfort and enjoy the freedom that in this country there is another dog with that bone I consider them enemies of the State and you have to be very aware of their movements and arrest them if necessary if it represents a danger to Freedom and the rights of the patriotic citizens of my Nation

    And the most imprudent of these Democrats is that they are enemies of Israel in their ranks of already declared anti-Semitic members, they do not know that they can carry out a hard and forceful divine judgment like the one that I took to the rotten Chavez in Venezuela. Scandalous. creators and are involved in human trafficking, pedophilia and corruption that have so far not been subject to the law to be imprisoned between Obama and Hillary and Soro and even CIA and FBI officials involved in lies and betrayals I consider them enemies of State and Democracy and its constitution that is maintained here that there is no one above the Law have been associated with the Lie conspiracy and the crime of even killing strong witnesses so as not to be delayed and put into law

    Woohoo! What a surprise! A.”Congressman” DemonCrap playing the race card! …DO NOT! It is one of the ONLY 3 things in which THE Party of Satan, are associated with slander the double standards and are cover-ups of crimes that must be placed under the order of the law and in them there is already declared and openly the inclusion of Anti-Semites who come to talk about racism are well mistaken, they are anti-constitutional and they are enemies of the state. I don’t know what they want by using what is the right state to attack those who are subject to the rule of law. They themselves are falling into their own space. they have dug, they will be put to shame and everything that is hidden from it will come out

    I love this POS – CA – NY passes laws that are UNCONSTITUTIONAL and a civil rights violation and they still raise he11 about their stupid and moronic actions……SCOTUS ruled in the 1800s that states CANNOT ALTER – Change and pass laws requiring candidates to do other actions which are ALREADY lined out in the constitution….

    It’s also a violation of a person civil rights under th 1st – 4th and 5th amendments…..

    cummings and his wife have already taken from their charity over 267K in salary….They obstruct the investigation by REFUSING to provide any docs or testimony…… Hmmmm – the INA through 96 ACT has set the president for millions of cases which activist judges and lawyers have NO INTENT to abide by and attempt to make law from the bench at every turn.. Asylees MUST BY LAW apply for asylum at contiguous democracies and countries they transit though. NO WHERE does it spell out that they can apply for most reasons and economic circumstances that they have…. Well – it was dems claiming that “No one is above the law” – NOW that it’s coming back to bite them in the a**——- THEY DON’T LIKE IT…… Is this the same cummings and wife – under investigation for charities fraud…..people and orgs donated to in order to receive FAVORS……. Mueller was set-up and used by them – but it’s his own mistake to allow himself to be used….. If the doj under barr fails to prosecute this gang of traitors then it’ll be up to Americans to do….. Thanks for copying the report

    a vote for any Democrat is a vote to kill America. Their professed programs will break our nation financially with the trillions in dollars to implement their radical programs they are running on. America is doing just great with President Trump in office and his accomplishments thus far warrant reelecting him to another term in office. SO I ask Patriotic Democrats please do not install any Democrats into elected offices in 2020. God Bless America and our Patriots

    Cummings should take care of his elected area before condemning our Border Patrol People. Furthermore what did he do with the Billions of Federal Monies he received to clean up his ELECTED AREA. Maybe he should use all those Millions he now has for being a POLITICIAN in that AREA, can we say PAYOFFS????

    I am a 35-year veteran of the public school system. It has been my experience that anyone who introduces the term “racist” within context of conversation with another is most likely a racist themselves.

    This kind of dialog didn’t prevail until the divisive 2008 election where “free speech” was challenged with “political correctness” and the sudden charge that everybody is a “racist”! I see it everyday in the classroom and at every age level. We used to be “ladies” and “gentlemen”. And there were rules about “name-calling”, which is so basic, we all knew them before kindergarten.

    Anybody who has lived in the USA for at least 3 decades and has followed the news KNOWS Al Sharpton is a hustler and con man and has done things that 99% of our citizens would have been locked up for. Al Sharpton claims to be a clergyman but he is no member of Jesus Christ’s Church. Further he has used charges of racist and racism against major corporations and then became supporters of them AFTER they paid him “ransom” money.
    Thank God for President Trump being willing to call a spade a spade and let the chips fall where they may.
