President Trump’s team has sent out an old recovered video of Democrat representative Elijah Cummings claiming Baltimore is a ‘drug infested area.’

Elijah Cummings made statements calling Baltimore a ‘drug infested area’ during a congressional hearing in 1999. Yet, no one viewed these statements as racist.

Cummings said: “This morning I left my community of Baltimore, a drug infested area” where people were “walking around like zombies.”

President Trump received heat and called a racist when he made similar statements about Elijah Cummings district.

Trump tweeted, “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……”

Trump continued, “….As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place”

Trump concluded, “Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States. No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!”
