You get what you accept. Baltimore is what it is because they accept it. As some have sad. Cummings has brought Federal dollars into Baltimore and it has delivered what? I mean besides getting him re-elected?

30 years of trying? At some point we need to start calling it 30 years of failing......
Trump being petty helps no one. And no one has proving that it has been helpful.

As for Baltimore, I know it's been in bad shape for a long time. That is on the local government, mainly the mayor. And there is a reason I don't blame it on Democrats. Madison,WI is a liberal, Democratic city. It is one of the most desired cities to live in. Contrast with Milwaukee, in the same state. It has alot of problems similar to Baltimore.

If many Baltimore residents want Cummings out, Trump calling Baltimore a dump isn't going to convince them.

What hypocrites they are.
Thinking that Trump should tweak his behavior....which might actually help him achieve his goals...doesn't make someone 'a leftist'.

Everything isn't 'Us vs. Them'.

I guess that makes Cummings King Rat. Looks the part. I hope him and his wife’s scheme is investigated and they are brought to justice. Then Baltimore can heal, once king rat is imprisoned.

If you don't see the issue, I can't show you it. I've tried with many Trump supporters. It is hopeless on here to change their minds even if there isn't mental gymnastics being used.

Have you ever considered the possibility that you're just wrong?

Probably not.

As a result of Trump's Twitter exchange, Mr. Cummings cannot ignore the results of his own nonfeasance any longer. Nor can anyone else.
Cummings still didn't get the message even with the way Trump expressed himself.

The left and right are so divided that they will find fault no matter how something is expressed anyway. But it would be nice if our president could at least make an attempt to make his point without being disgusting about it.

The posters in this thread present a snapshot of what's going on with our politicians. Both sides have valid points but nobody is considering them because they're too busy trying to outbash the other side.

How is any of this helpful? Our country is suffering while everyone is engaged in a giant food fight war of words.

When anyone has had that many code violations, one wonders why or how they are still in business beyond finding legal loopholes or paying off the powers that be to overlook the violations.

The bolded is appropriate on a playground to defend one's self, or appropriate for the same reason in a street fight. It isn't appropriate for the POTUS. He's doing what is known as 'punching down'.

You'd think the far left would know this by now.
You're right. They're probably being pie-in-the-sky idealists to expect better behavior from this President.

And the reason most of the country doesn't get all hot and bothered by some of the politically incorrect and sometimes cringworthy statements he makes is because they know there is a kernel of truth in what he says.
You know what the people you know think. You don't know if that speaks for most of the country or not.

Baltimore is a dump, and a very dangerous one at that. Why does the far left pretend it's not? Maybe they should admit it and then try to help the people that live there. And yes most people, even if they are too polite to say it, agree than many African countries are $hitholes. This is why their people are trying to escape to Europe and the US. When the far left folks threaten to leave the US, it is never those African countries that they are looking to go to.
Trump didn't make the comments with the goal of helping people, he made the comments because his 'widwl feewings' were hurt by what Cummings said about the border, and because he's trying to discredit Cummings because he doesn't like that Cummings wants to look deeper into his finances.

So you're saying that Cummings looks like a rat? Kinda like Trump's description of Baltimore is "infested with rats and filth". You're saying that the Congressman from Maryland is a rat infesting his state?

Is that what you're selling tonight on the forum, or are you just parroting Trump's racist remarks about Baltimore and the citizens who live there?

Just curious how far you want to push this cart full of road apples down the internet highway.
