Video: Rep Cummings Called His Baltimore Community a ‘drug-infested area’

Maryland Democrat Representative Elijah Cummings felt the same way President Trump does over the horrendous condition of Baltimore streets.

Cummings is on video calling his district “a drug-infested area.”

President Trump tweeted the C-SPAN clip from 1999.

Decades ago, Cummings was clearly aware of the serious issues plaguing his district but nothing has changed under his watch.

The other major concern is what happened to the federal funds the city received over the span of many years and most recently, $16 billion in 2018?

Last week, President Trump posted tweets on the matter, calling Cummings’ district, “the Worst in the USA.”

All week long supporters of Cummings including the anti-Trump media rallied behind him with endless cries of racism against President Trump.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended Cummings, tweeting, “We all reject racist attacks against him….”

CNN’s Victor Blackwell, a Baltimore native, also came to Cummings’ defense in a tearful interview criticizing President Trump, saying, “When he tweets about infestation, it’s about black and brown people” (watch video).

However, the Left’s selective outrage is comical to watch, considering Cummings is not the only liberal who highly criticized his own Baltimore district.

Former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh, who resigned in May over a scandal involving children’s books, toured the streets of Baltimore last September and is on video, saying, “Whoa, you can smell the rats.”

Vermont Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders echoed the same feeling about Baltimore a few years ago.

Talk about hypocrisy.

Can’t wait to see how Democrats and the anti-Trump media will spin the comments by Cummings, Pugh, and Sanders.

Not surprising, liberals continue to ignore the actual deplorable conditions the citizens in Cummings’ district are living in and have been for decades.

Liberals making President Trump’s comments about race provides cover for Cummings and shields him from accountability.
