And it appears he will continue to do so until next November’s election…
This time he knocks Rep. Cummings (D-Maryland) and his city of Baltimore….
It appears that Trump IS going to run his campaign for re-election by running against Black, Brown and Yellow Americans….
That, despite his swearing on a bible to support and protect ALL of America….
He was lying even then….
Donald Trump seems to be trying to say Americans who are STILL the targets of race and religious based discrimination should just grin and bear it , being happy to be in America where whites mostly do not have the issues….
How could ANYONE foresee such a in our faces clawback 8 years after this country had a black/mixed race President that has a approval number almost 20% higher than Trump a year and half after Obama has left office?
President Trump doubled down on his attacks against Rep. Elijah Cummings(D-Md.) and his Baltimore congressional district, saying that it’s “sad” that the longtime congressman has done “so little” for the city he represents and accusing Democrats of playing “the Race Card.”
“So sad that Elijah Cummings has been able to do so little for the people of Baltimore,” Trump said in a tweet late Saturday, before claiming that “statistically, Baltimore ranks last in almost every major category. Cummings has done nothing but milk Baltimore dry, but the public is getting wise to the bad job that he is doing!”
Trump did not expand on what statistics he was referring to. He defended his position again early Sunday, saying there is “nothing wrong” with pointing out that Cummings has done a “very poor job.”
“The Democrats always play the Race Card, when in fact they have done so little for our Nation’s great African American people… Elijah Cummings has failed badly,” Trump said….
President Trump launched another broadside Saturday on a Democratic political opponent, calling a prominent black congressman’s Baltimore district a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess” and saying “no human being would want to live there.”
That Twitter attack on Rep. Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.) plunged the nation into yet another anguished debate over the president’s divisive rhetoric. And it came just two weeks after Trump called out four minority congresswomen with a racist go-back-to-your-country taunt.
The assault on Cummings, chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, prompted immediate condemnations from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Baltimore Mayor Bernard C. Young and several other top Democrats.
The outburst also undercut efforts by many Republicans over the past two weeks to defend Trump and insist that his earlier attacks were based in ideology rather than race.
But Trump’s advisers had concluded after the previous tweets that the overall message sent by such attacks is good for the president among his political base — resonating strongly with the white working-class voters he needs to win reelection in 2020.
This has prompted them to find ways to fuse Trump’s nativist rhetoric with a love-it-or-leave-it appeal to patriotism ahead of the 2020 election, while seeking to avoid the overtly racist language the president used in his tweets about the four congresswomen….
