By now everyone is aware of the rivalry between Democrat Congressman Elijah Cummings and Donald Trump over the rat and crime-infested city he represents. The media attacks Trump for telling the truth about Baltimore and other liberal run cities which are in shambles and call him racist every second of every minute of every hour of every day instead of recognizing the true source of the problem.
Over the weekend, Trump used his Twitter feed to attack Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings and his majority-black Baltimore district by calling it a “disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess” where “no human being would want to live.”
“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,” the president wrote.
President Trump continued to attack House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings on Monday after a weekend of tweets targeting the Maryland Democrat.
“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!” Trump tweeted Monday night.
Trump also went after Baltimore, which Cummings represents, pointing out the high levels of crime in the city, as well as the money that has gone into attempting to put an end to the violence.
“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!” Trump added in the two-tweet string.
Congressman Elijah Cummings may honestly believe that his district in West Baltimore doesn’t stink. But it does.
Bernie Sanders called it “the third world” back in 2015 yet there was no outcry from the media then. They just pretend their fake moral outrage if Trump or a republican says it. Just like there was plenty of Russian collusion with Hillary and none with Trump, but Trump gets the accusation from the dem media.
As the media and Democratic Party tries to portray President Donald Trump’s tweets about Baltimore as racist, a resurfaced clip from last year shows Democratic Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh complaining about the poor conditions in part of the city, specifically “rats” and “dead animals.”
Pugh made the remarks during a Fox 45 segment while touring a Baltimore neighborhood that was supposed to highlight her “violence-reduction initiative.”
As Pugh toured the neighborhood, she said: “What the hell? We should just take all this sh*t down. … Whoa, you can smell the rats. … Whew, Jesus. … Oh, my God, you can smell the dead animals.” There was no outrage from the media then either.
The viral video clip came in response to media figures and Democrats falsely claiming that the president’s tweets on Saturday were racist. Nowhere in Trump’s tweets did he refer to race as he called out the poor living conditions inside Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings’ (MD) district.
“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 tweeted. “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 continued: “Why 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. No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!”
Rep. Cummings, while being very obsessed with Russia, seems utterly bewildered with the idea that anyone could dare question why so many billions of federal dollars flow to places like West Baltimore when they are obviously doing no good.
Look at other cities in similar dilapidation and there holds a unique truth: Democrats run them all. How long will sewage run down the streets of San Francisco? How long will St. Louis, Detroit, and Baltimore, continue to rotate as the nation’s most dangerous crime-infested metros? And how long will federal dollars keep chasing bad money with new?
None of the elected officials seem to know—much less care. They look and see that Elijah Cummings has been a “public servant” for most of his life, 30 years and a 13 term congressman to be precise, yet owns not one but two homes.
Nancy Pelosi owns at least ten properties and has a net worth of $29 million. On a salary of $223,000 per year. She lives in a gated community just one mile from downtown San Francisco where there are thousands of homeless people sleeping on the streets, hypodermic needles are everywhere, people are urinating and defecating on the street and nothing is being done. You would think that being worth 30 million she could arrange for something to be done like building homeless shelters and rehab centers where people could get a hot meal and have a place to sleep.
Places like Haiti, Guatemala, Ghana and the Congo, have no opportunity to make their lives better because those economies are largely run by corrupt governments whose only ambition is to use public office to enrich themselves. A lot like Cummings, Sanders, and Pelosi have done.
For Baltimore, it’s been this way for decades and the only reason that Elijah Cummings got passionate about the issue, isn’t because it’s true. It’s because he got called out on it, by someone who is working to make America better for everybody. Thus revealing—whether in knowledge or in ignorance—Congressman Cummings hasn’t been, but Democrats who live in these cities already know that. They live in the land of corrupt squander every waking day.
Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh even got in on the debate saying “Now that Trump’s president, become a conservative Republican, he is enemy number one. And they’re lying about him, and it’s been going on for two and a half years. And he’s fed up with it. And he’s pushing back on it. And never once did he call anybody a racist in the process. Never once did he blame racism for any problem in Baltimore. Never once did he call Elijah Cummings a racist, but comes and goes can come along and call anybody a racist he wants and so can Pelosi and so can the media. And they do. And we’re all fed up it.
Trump and Elijah Cummings. This is what pushback is. This was always what it was gonna look like. If there were ever a Republican with the guts to actually call these people out, we have that now. Donald Trump. What Donald Trump said about Elijah Cummings, what Donald Trump said about Baltimore, he’s not the first!
He’s not the first. Baltimore has said it. The Baltimore Sun has said it. Reporters in Baltimore have said it. It’s not a big mystery. Trump was right on the money, and everybody knows that he was right. What’s different is that this just doesn’t happen. Democrat politicians just do not get criticized.”
Baltimore received $1.8 billion from former President Barack Obama’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), but the city has largely failed to see significant improvements from the massive investment
What do you suppose happened to all of that money? It seems likely there HAS to be a paper trail somewhere that would lead us down the rabbit hole, but with corrupt Democrats in power, it’s probably been shredded or burned so that only God could tell us where it went. The crime rate is still through the roof, and some sections of the city are in shambles, but SOMEbody made off with a ton of money, seemingly without a trace. How many affordable houses could have been built with that money? How many new rehab centers and homeless shelters could have been built with that money?? Instead 206 million of that 1.8 billion went to investing in the environment of Baltimore. Democrats contend that the way to fix stuff is to throw cash at it like water over Niagara Falls, but if that were true, Baltimore is a classic case of utter failure!
Baltimore’s unemployment rate is the third highest out of 36 cities, the household median income is $11,000 dollars less than the average median income. The murder rate in Baltimore is higher than the murder rate in Honduras and there has been a 20,000 drop in population since 2010. Baltimore is now the most dangerous city in America and all Elijah Cummings is concerned about is the conditions at the border which are better than his city. If he would sit down with Trump instead of constantly attacking him like all Dems do maybe he could accomplish something for his city.
As someone once noted . . . You can’t spell “Republican” or “American” without I CAN and you can’t spell “Democrats” without RATS.
