Donald Trump Just Gloated that Elijah Cummings's Baltimore Home Was Robbed and It's a New Low Even for Him
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."
As President Donald Trump continues his onslaught of tweets maligning Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and Cummings's district of Baltimore, Maryland, the president's eldest daughter tweeted praise of the city.
The feeling wasn't mutual.

Donald Trump's Effort to Dismiss a Lawsuit Against Him for Profiting Off the Presidency Just Hit a Roadblock
The Attorneys General (AG) of Washington D.C. and Maryland filed suit against President Donald Trump for violations of the U.S. Constitution's Emoluments Clause. Now, despite efforts on behalf of the president to have the suit dismissed, a judge ruled their lawsuit will proceed.
No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State." U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 9, Clause 8
However, Judge Peter Messitte of the US District Court of Maryland restricted the scope of the case to the jurisdictions of the AGs involved in the lawsuit. This includes any Trump Organization holdings in Washington D.C. or Maryland, but excludes others such as Mar-a-Lago in Florida.
