Cummings would rater abuse his authority as a committee chairman to bully law enforcement he won't support !!! Cummings would rater spend his time representing noncitizens and his future voters than the citizens that elected him !!!

Second, I'm not sure that the remarks are automatically racist, but Trump's problem is that once he has a record for so much racism, even before his presidency, he's stuck with been viewed that way.
Trump's record was well known and available before he was elected ? Enough people had a different opinion !!! Enough people to get him elected !!!
If not wanting to be racist was the problem, why would democrats bring in a Race Pimp like AL Sharpton to shake down Baltimore !!! He has a history of race bating and will go away and shut-up once he's paid enough !!! Sharpton lives for these problems and makes bank on them !!! When the bank closes he's out of there !!! Community agitator seek next community and on and on....He doesn't have to be right about anything he just has to be outraged and loud !!! Racism !!! Racism !!!

The 16 or so public housing development has been infested with rats and mice for decades. And some of this has all to do with the habits of the people who call these places home.

Baltimore got a $200,000 federal grant to fund pest control in public housing and intends to outsource to a private company. It is also investing in community education.

The pattern is that non White men who pick fights with Trump are rebuked much more harshly than other people. Trump can see good in people who chant "Jews will not replace Whites" and sees poor Whites as victims of bad trade policy but any similar complaints by non Whites and they are SOBs or need to go back where they came from.

Now Trump makes the Democrats defend Rat infested, high crime, failed Democrat run cities as models for America.

Oh well, nice try Dems. You lose again.
Stop with the "whatabout-isms already.

It seems like that is your last defense to justify Trump's blatant racism.

Loyalty to Trump got Cohen a prison sentence so go down that rabbit hole if you want!

Cummings has been there for 26 years. He is part of the problem. He has been a miserable failure!!!

Rising sea level could take half the city in the next couple centuries. What's left may get hammered by hurricanes. A port may still be needed there, but I expect most of the population will be moving up into the Appalachians.

Yep. I remember when Trump tried to tell Obama to clean up Baltimore.

I would take that to mean that Trump needs to clean up Baltimore himself.

He said the country is going to hell. Maybe that means he should leave.
