The Democrats have been hammering President Donald Trump over his tweets on the “rat-infested” city of Baltimore. They tell Americans that the word “infested” is a Nazi dog-whistle word used by Adolf Hitler to describe the Jews. They even said it will lead to the “extermination” of black people. Well, Trump just proved Rep. Elijah Cummings used the same “racist” language about Baltimore and really put him to shame. You’ll love this.

The Democrats are desperate to label President Trump as a racist. They can’t tell Americans that Trump has failed at the economy or foreign policy or that he hasn’t kept his promises. So, they are constantly looking for ways to brand him a “racist.”

Which is what happened when the president tweeted about the “rat and rodent-infested” city of Baltimore and put the spotlight on one of their longest-serving politicians, Rep. Elijah Cummings.

“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.

Immediately, Democrats along with their partners in the mainstream media accused Trump of being a horrible racist. It was truly mind-boggling that anyone would read those tweets and see something racist about using the word “infested,” but that’s what the Trump-haters were claiming.

For the next 4-5 days, networks like CNN and MSNBC were reporting just that. Even at last night’s Democrat debate, CNN’s Don Lemon told the candidates on stage that “Trump’s tweets on Baltimore were blatantly racist.”

Then, there’s MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. 

“Infested, infested, infested. It’s vermin. It’s a Hitlerian term,” Chris Matthews told the MSNBC panel. “If you go back and read Goebbels and all of that stuff, it’s all about the Jews in that case… he’s obsessed with this thing about cities.”

Which brings us to the video which was uncovered of Rep. Cummings from 20 years ago.

The clip, which appears to be from a congressional hearing in 1999, documents Cummings lamenting the Maryland city’s overwhelming drug problems, and he describes Baltimore as drug-infested. That’s right. Cummings is caught using the word “infested” to describe Baltimore just like Trump.

“I left my community of Baltimore, a drug-infested area where a lot of the drugs we’re talking about today have already taken the lives of so many children,’ Cummings can be heard saying in the clip. “The same children I watched 14 or 15 years ago as they grew up are now walking around like Zombies. This is only 40 miles away from [Washington DC].”

“The Radical Left Dems went after me for using the words ‘drug-infested’ concerning Baltimore. Take a look at Elijah C.,” tweeted the president along with the video evidence.

Americans supported Trump and rejected the Democrats ridiculous claims.

“OMG! Elijah Cummings used the word ‘infested.’ The Media told me that was racist language against blacks. I can’t wait for the Media to hold this bigot accountable!!!” tweeted Righteous Crusaders.

Well done @POTUS Video is forever. Cummings has to answer for $16B that went to his community. Will there be Marshalls to meet him at the airport when he returns from his lavish trip to Italy?” tweeted “Carrie hearts America.”

Well, well, well. What do ya know. The media and Democrats caught dead to rights promoting another disgraceful LIE about Trump. #MAGA means a better life for ALL AMERICANS of ALL RACES. Drop the anger and get ready for another great 4 years with Trump in 2020!” tweeted David Wohl.

The federal government has sent billions of dollars to Baltimore in recent years, but the money has been either “stolen or wasted,” President Donald Trump said late July 29.

On Twitter, Trump wrote: “Baltimore’s numbers are the worst in the United States on Crime and the Economy. Billions of dollars have been pumped in over the years, but to no avail. The money was stolen or wasted.”

“Ask Elijah Cummings where it went. He should investigate himself with his Oversight Committee!” Trump added, referring to the Democratic Maryland representative, who is chairman of the House Oversight Committee.

This is what the Democrats should be focused on. Where in the hell did almost $16 billion dollars go? It sure didn’t go to fix up the rat-infested housing areas or streets in West Baltimore. There should be an investigation into where all that money went, every last dime.

The facts are every big city that is struggling has been led by the Democrats for decades. Baltimore, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco are all crime-ridden cities with scores of homeless Americans dying every day on their streets. If Democrats get their way, they will turn this entire nation into those Democratic-held cities. This should be reason enough to scare everyone to re-elect Trump and vote all Democrats out.
