Holy shit! Did he acccuse Elijah Cummings of skimming taxpayer money earmarked for his district?

Yeah, I think he did.

Trump’s tweets landed shortly after “Fox and Friends” — one of the president’s favorite cable TV shows — aired a segment blasting Cummings’ district, with Republican strategist Kimberly Klacik calling it the “most dangerous district in America” while showing shots of dilapidated buildings that were filmed by the strategist.

The House Oversight and Reform Committee led by Cummings voted Thursday to authorize subpoenas for senior White House officials’ communications via private email accounts and messaging applications.

At a hearing last week, the Oversight chairman publicly ripped into Kevin McAleenan, the acting head of Homeland Security, over the conditions of detention facilities for migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Cummings repeatedly shut down McAleenan’s attempts to speak while discussing the crowded centers migrants are being held in.

Cummings read from a court document in which a federal judge found that Homeland Security “did a better job of tracking immigrants’ personal property than their children,” before adding, “I’m talking about human beings. I’m not talking about people that come from, as the president said, shitholes. These are human beings. Human beings. Just trying to live a better life.”

Cummings also asked whether there is an “empathy deficit” at DHS.

Elijah Cumminigs is a passionate advocate for human rights and always has been.

For Trump to accuse him of stealing taxpayer money because there are some run-down buildings in his district is insane. 

Paolitico also makes this point:

Cummings’ district is 55 percent African American and 35 percent white. Among the majority-black districts, Cummings’ is the second-most wealthy and educated in Maryland.

Sounds like racism may have a little something to do with this as well. 

And keep in mind Trump launched a similar attack against Rep. John Lewis. 

So yeah, definitely racist.
