Trump blasts Cummings over 'stolen' money from Baltimore

Thursday, 01 Aug, 2019

Ocasio-Cortez is of Puerto Rican descent, Tlaib's parents are Palestinian and Pressley is African American. "We are going to see to it that this cracker suffers".

(L)-Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) speaks to the media on May 17, 2017, in Washington. Clearly troubled by the scrutiny, the president unleashed on the Maryland congressman.

Many Twitter users responded to the rat "photo-bomb" video by pointing at several local stories over the years about longtime rodent problems in Baltimore.

Charlie Kirk, the founder of conservative youth organization Turning Point USA, tweeted about the statistics on Monday and opined that asylum seekers from Honduras "would be more safe staying home than they would be in Democrat-controlled, American cities".

In June, Twitter announced a new policy that would hide the tweets from influential accounts, like Trump's, if they broke the platform's rules. Nothing in the acclaimed HBO series The Wire so ruthlessly denigrated Baltimore as the president's tweet. If I didn't do well, relatively speaking, I wouldn't be president right now. Each morning, I wake up, and I go and fight for neighbors. It is my constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the Executive Branch.

That wasn't the response Trump wanted. In the midst of the ensuing controversy Sharpton announced, "If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkas back and come over to my house".

"He called Cummings - the son of sharecroppers in SC - a "racist". House Speaker Nancy Pelosi quickly obliged.

While most voters overall don't consider supporters of President Trump to be racist, a new Rasmussen Reports survey released Wednesday, finds that half of Democrats perceive believe that. It began with the president's comment on July 27, calling Cummings a "brutal bully" for shouting at federal immigration authorities about the conditions on the southwest border with Mexico. "Ben, thank you very much wherever you may be".

Trump is a businessman. Gray died on April 19, 2015, from spinal cord injuries while in police custody, in a high-profile case that led to widespread anger and unrest over police violence directed at the black community.

Maryland's two Democratic senators, saying they could not sit by as Trump continued his assault on the city and its representative, delivered back-to-back Senate speeches Tuesday urging the president to do better.

President Donald Trump marked the 400th anniversary of the rise of American democracy on Tuesday by celebrating "four incredible centuries of history, heritage and commitment to the righteous cause of American self-government".

A majority of USA voters believe that President Donald Trump is a racist, according to a poll released Tuesday by Quinnipiac University.
