President Donald Trump exposed the poverty-stricken city of Baltimore, run by Democratic politicians like Rep. Elijah Cummings. Baltimore is in bad shape, and African-American residents started backing up Trump. That’s when the Reverend Al Sharpton attacked the president as a “racist who is lying about Baltimore.” Well, immediately Trump counter-punched Sharpton with the cold hard truth. You’ll love this.

It all started when President Trump decided to shed light on the poverty-stricken, rat-infested, gangland murder epicenter that is Baltimore. Once a great city, Baltimore fell into the hands of the Democrats in 1964. One of it’s leading politicians is Rep. Elijah Cummings.

Trump, getting tired of the attacks by the Democrats led by Rep. Cummings on the Border Patrol agents, along with their lies and innuendos about the treatment of the detained migrants, made a great point when he compared it all to Baltimore.

“Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA,” tweeted Trump.

“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,” he added.

That caused Cummings and Nancy Pelosi to have a meltdown. African-American citizens of Baltimore were caught agreeing with Trump. Kimberly Klacik, an African-American journalist backed up the president.

“It is so sad to see @VictorBlackwell & @CNN turn the light currently shining on #WestBaltimore into a race issue,” she said. “This could result in a positive change. @RepCummings could help get his district in order. Listen to one of his constituents explain the ‘rats & rodents’ problem.”

Klacik also interviewed a Baltimore resident named Michelle, who identified as a Democrat. She didn’t hold back on Rep. Cummings or Trump.

“What (President Trump) said was definitely true. (Cummings) hasn’t done anything for us” she said. “He’s worried more about (caring for illegal aliens at the border) than his own people.”

“Trump is not racist … I’m glad he put (Cummings) on blast. The rats just didn’t come. These houses just didn’t get torn down, they’ve been like this,” she said.

This was a catastrophe for the Democrats. 

All weekend long, the Democrats like Cummings and Nancy Pelosi spent the first days of their summer break on cable TV shows attempting to deflect from Trump’s tweets exposing Baltimore. However, they made no headway.

That’s why they called in the Rev. Al Sharpton, hoping he could quell the heat on the bad image of the Democratic-led Baltimore.

On his MSNBC show on Sunday, Sharpton criticized Trump for “insult after racist insult” towards Cummings and Baltimore. He claimed the president was lying about the blight of Baltimore.

Sharpton also lectured Republicans for looking the other way as Trump continued his “blatant dehumanizing racist rant” that was “endorsed” by his base.

“Here we have blatant, raw racism, and crickets from the Republican party,” Sharpton said.

Sharpton announced plans for a Monday protest in Baltimore with former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele to criticize Trump’s remarks. This is just the “Rev. Al” carnival act coming to town to spew his own brand of racist rhetoric.

Immediately, Trump counter-punched Sharpton with the truth.

“I have known Al for 25 years. Went to fights with him & Don King, always got along well. He ‘loved Trump!’ He would ask me for favors often. Al is a con man, a troublemaker, always looking for a score. Just doing his thing. Must have intimidated Comcast/NBC. Hates Whites & Cops!” tweeted the president.

President Trump has had Sharpton’s number for a long time. He is a loudmouth con man who uses race-baiting to keep himself in the limelight.

“[Sharpton] has been a racially divisive charlatan, not to mention a financial charlatan — still owing millions of dollars in back taxes. And someone who was such an extreme and marginal figure who has stoked the rhetoric against cops for decades now and has no constituency,” said Michelle Malkin, who weighed in on “The Rev. Al” in 2018.

You know the Democrats are in big trouble if they resort to calling on Sharpton for support. With unemployment the lowest it has been for minorities since 1969, the Democrats have been seeing their must-have African American voters abandoning them to jump on the Trump train, and Al Sharpton can’t do a damn thing to stop them.
