Trump Attacks Rep. Cummings As A ‘Racist,’ Demands A ‘Thank You’ For Helping Black Americans

President Donald Trump on Sunday demanded a “Thank you, Mr. President!” from Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) after Trump delivered a series of racist attacks targeting the African-American lawmaker and his black-majority district of Baltimore, calling the district “disgusting” and “rat and rodent infested.”

“There is nothing racist in stating plainly what most people already know, that Elijah Cummings has done a terrible job for the people of his district, and of Baltimore itself. Dems always play the race card when they are unable to win with facts. Shame!” Trump declared on Twitter.

Trump then claimed that Cummings is a “racist” without providing evidence to back his claim.

“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. His radical ‘oversight’ is a joke!” Trump said in a tweet several minutes later.

The president then demanded a “Thank you” from Rep. Cummings and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for helping the African-American community.

“Under the Trump Administration, African American unemployment is the lowest (best) in the history of the United States. No President has come close to doing this before! I also created successful Opportunity Zones. Waiting for Nancy and Elijah to say, ‘Thank you, Mr. President!’” Trump closed.
