Maybe because some black people strongly identify with the word “dump”?

There seems to be a boatload of African-Americans across the country that were offended by Trump's recent comments and attacks on Cummings and "The Squad."

Trump supporters - do you care at all that a lot of black people were offended by Trump's comments? Or are those black people just snowflakes?

And, if you don't care about whether or not Trump's comments offended a lot of Black Americans, do you care about the black vote in 2020?

These statements were wrong but, they are old now. The president is expected to be better than that & yet he does this on a daily basis. It's wrong.

Trump is the President.

The concept of not ‘punching down’ goes completely over Trump’s head.
good Lord in heaven that was lame.....

Assumption given as fact.

Cummings has done a lousy job. To intentionally put illegal aliens in front of his own constituents shows how out of touch he is. If Trump is supposedly a racist then Cummings is as well if not more so! See how quickly racism is losing it's meaning now? It's the boys that cried wolf too much. Now it's coming around to bite you in the butt!!

Sen. Bernie Sanders said on Sunday he thinks it’s “unbelievable” that President Trump “attacks American cities” when asked about Trump’s tweet calling Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings’ Baltimore district a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.”

Bernie Sanders, 2015.....touring Cumming's district

“Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation. You would think that you were in a Third World country,”


Cumming's district is a 3rd world sh1thole....and for over 20 years Cummings has done nothing about it

Boatload is a racist term, it is tied to slavery. Please use a more neutral term.

I can't speak to Cummings being a racist (well, I can and he is) but I will say that his predecessor Kweisi Mfume was much easier to work with on matters relating to Maryland even if it wasn't his district.
