President Donald Trump still can't stop talking about Baltimore or lodging personal attacks against Congressman and civil rights activist Elijah Cummings (D-MD), who represents the city.
Reports emerged on Thursday night that Cummings's home had been broken into on Saturday, hours before Trump began his original tweets calling Baltimore a "rat and rodent infested mess" where "no human being would want to live," and before he called Cummings a "brutal bully" and a "racist."
Apparently the existence of crime in Baltimore was all that Trump needed to vindicate his assertions, because he soon took to Twitter to gloat.
Really bad news! The Baltimore house of Elijah Cummings was robbed. Too bad!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1564747122.0
Trump, who describes himself as "the least racist person in the world," has repeatedly attacked Cummings and Baltimore barely two weeks after saying four American congresswomen of color should "go back" to their countries instead of being critical of American policies.
People were astonished at how petty and unpresidential Trump's tweet was, even for him.
