As we begin the work week, on Monday, a new Twitter war between President Trump and Rev. Al Sharpton is in full force.
Trump did not mince words when he answered Sharpton’s tweet and declared that Sharpton was “con man” who “hates whites & cops.”
The MSNBC host said that he would travel to Baltimore in the midst of the controversy over the president’s comments about the city and its Democratic lawmakers.
Here’s tweets from Trump:
On Sunday night, Sharpton posted details of a press conference he planned to give Monday “to address Trump’s remarks & bi-partisan outrage in the black community.”
This came about in response to Trump’s criticism of Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md.. The condition of his district, which includes Baltimore, came into play.
Sharpton tweeted this:
The Twitter war started with Cummings being called out by Trump through tweets over the weekend. Trump called Cummings a “brutal bully” for his treatment of Border Patrol officials at committee hearings. The president also described Cummings’ district as “far worse and more dangerous” than the southern border.
Cummings has represented Maryland’s 7th District since 1996.
Well the fact is that his district is in really bad shape. People who live there, live with rats, mice, roaches, lice and bed bugs. Cummings’ constituents are not happy.
The 7th district is rat and rodent infested disaster and the crime rate is deadlier than Chicago and Detroit according to crime statistics released by the FBI.
I wonder if Sharpton will visit the bad parts of the district and report what the residents are actually facing in their everyday lives. That would be a start to help fix the mess that Democrat lawmakers seem to have a knack for creating.
