Cummings slamming the conditions at the border...hasn't done one damn thing for the people he represents

Trump calls him out on "glass houses".....and he deserved it big time

the only way it could be racist...is if it attacked black culture
..libs must think rat infested black ghettos...are black culture

Trump is 100% right.....

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump
Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA......
The liberal is the enemy of truth.

I think Trump probably watched an episode of 'The Wire' and based his views on that.

Trump also believes New Jersey is populated entirely by Italian gangsters and their families and that people in Albuquerque drive around in old battered vehicles and make meth amphetamine for a living.

In Baltimore's defence, John Hopkins is a famous medical school and university, and the Peabody Library is famous, and Baltimore looks like it has a nice harbour. I do have to agree with Trump in terms of the amount of murders though, although the rate has been falling in some US cities which is a further positive.

the conditions at the border are better than many areas Cummings has represented for more than 20 years.

I'll leave you all now to talk about how awful Democrats are to point out Trump's obvious racism. I'm sure you have a lot to say about it.

And WHY are they so cheap?

just don't park more than a block away or you're in the deep ghetto. My daughter worked there, got a security escort to walk her to her car in the evening, not 200 yards from the building entrance.

This place sucks. You can buy my house and live by your sister. It will probably be nice and cheap by the time I'm able to move.
My sister isn't "telling me" anything, I know because I visit there regularly. I have no problem walking around that neighborhood at night. After reading what you've wrote, I call into question your statements. In fact, I don't believe them, cause what you are describing is not what I KNOW to be true in my sisters neighborhood.

Someone please explain to Nancy Pelosi, who was recently called racist by those in her own party, that there is nothing wrong with bringing out the very obvious fact that Congressman Elijah Cummings has done a very poor job for his district and the City of Baltimore. Just take a look, the facts speak far louder than words! The Democrats always play the Race Card, when in fact they have done so little for our Nationís great African American people. Now, lowest unemployment in U.S. history, and only getting better. Elijah Cummings has failed badly!

Trump didn't call out Baltimore. He called out Elijah Cummings for failing his district. Trump never used race. That's nonsense that you added in, obviously from the vile media.
What in the world are you talking about? See someone above who has no clue that the USA is not limited to the mainland. Neither do you know where I am actually located at this time.

As far 2nd part of your comment, use your brain.

What does the murder rate falling "in some cities" have to do with the increasing rate in Baltimore (DC too, for that matter)?

Johns Hopkins this year was authorized by the State Legislature to form its own campus police department because crime has increased on campus and the surrounding area so much BPD can't keep up.

The Harbor is nice. Unfortunately it's now experiencing crime issues. Tourists with money and wayward youth aren't mixing well.

Baltimore also pioneered the use of CCTV to monitor behaviors and coupled that with facial recognition software.

Almost like being in London.
