Two weeks ago, President Trump responded to Democrat lawmaker, Rep Elijah Cummings criticism of US Border Patrol agents and the conditions of the detention centers on the southern border.
In a blistering tweet, President Trump pointed out that instead of focusing on the conditions for illegal aliens on our border, Rep. Cummings should instead, focus on the conditions of the district he represents, calling it a “rat and rodent-infested mess.” President Trump tweeted that if Rep. Cummings “spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous and filthy place.”
….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

President Trump was immediately blasted by Democrats and their allies in the media for his comments, calling him a “racist,” for daring to attack the do-nothing lawmaker, who’s presided over the crime-infested city of Baltimore for decades.
Unfortunately, for Democrats, their attacks on President Trump only served to shine a light on Rep. Cummings crime and rat and rodent-infested district.
Rep. Cummings told the media he wanted President Trump to come to Baltimore, saying that, “Baltimore is a beautiful city,” pointing to the crooked former mayor of Baltimore Stephanie Rowlings-Blake, who told the police to “stand down” during the Baltimore riots in 2015, saying, “we’ve done some wonderful things.”

Is it really safe for President Trump to come to Baltimore? Did Rep. Cummings miss the police report about the killings that took place over the past two days in Baltimore when he was talking about how “Baltimore is a beautiful city?”
Today, the Baltimore Sun is reporting – Two men are dead, and four were wounded in four separate shootings that Baltimore police say took place overnight Wednesday and early Thursday morning.
The department also said that an officer discharged his weapon when responding to a shooting, but provided no details about where the shooting took place.
Baltimore police wrote on Facebook that officers in the Northern District first responded to a report of a shooting in the area of the 900 block of E. 41st St. in Pen Lucy at 7:29 p.m.
Upon arriving, officers found an unresponsive man who’d been shot multiple times. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later, police wrote.
The department added that the “victim had a handgun in his pants” when he was found.
About 1½ hours later, at 8:54 p.m., Northern District officers were again dispatched to a report of a shooting in the 2700 block of Cylburn Ave in Levindale.
Upon arriving, officers found another unresponsive man who’d been shot multiple times.
He was taken to a hospital where he is being treated for his injuries, police wrote. Due to the severity of the man’s injuries, homicide detectives have assumed control of the investigation.
Less than 20 minutes later, at 9:10 p.m., officers from the Western District were dispatched to a report of a shooting on the 1100 block of W. Mosher St in Sandtown-Winchester.
Officers found a 24-year-old man who’d been shot multiple times. He was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
