Trump calls rep.'s Baltimore district a 'disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess'

President Donald Trump ranted Saturday morning on Twitter about an African American lawmaker by disparaging the Baltimore district that Rep. Elijah Cummings represents as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.”

As chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, Cummings has initiated most of the investigations into the Trump administration’s operations and policies, including recently the reports of inhumane treatment at migrant detention centers.

Trump, seemingly borrowing from a Fox & Friends segment on the same topic, tweeted that Cummings’ district is “FAR WORSE and more dangerous” than conditions at the border. He suggested Cummings focus his attention instead on cleaning up “this very dangerous & filthy place.”

Trump’s attack on Cummings is reminiscent of his recent racist attacks on four minority congresswomen who he said should “go back” to the “crime infested” places they were originally from and fix them before trying to improve America. All four women are U.S. citizens, and only one was born abroad.

1. 'Someone' confusing the direction of their words toward and involving a human being

of integrity when 'he' meant to describe that which is on and in his head.
