BREAKING: Trump Turns the Tables, Calls Cummings the “Racist!”

After Trump’s tweets about the conditions of Elijah Cummings district, Democrats and liberal media pundits went into overdrive calling the President’s attack “racist.”

White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney fired back and argued on “Fox News Sunday”Cummings had criticized the border and Trump he would have done the same thing if the criticism had come from Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), a white congressman who is Jewish.

Mulvaney also agreed with Trump and added “If I had poverty in my district like they have in Baltimore, if I had crime in my district like they have in Chicago, if I had homelessness in my district like they have in San Francisco, and I spent all of my time in Washington, D.C., chasing down this Mueller investigation, this bizarre impeachment crusade, I’d get fired.”

“I think the president is right to raise that. It has absolutely zero to do with race.”

Per TheHill, President Trump defended his recent attacks on Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), saying there is “nothing racist” in his tweets.

“There is nothing racist in stating plainly what most people already know, that Elijah Cummings has done a terrible job for the people of his district, and of Baltimore itself. Dems always play the race card when they are unable to win with facts. Shame!,” Trump tweeted Sunday.

Trump tweeted Saturday about Cummings and the city of Baltimore, which falls in the congressman’s district, calling the city “disgusting” and “rodent infested,” comments that were widely denounced as racist by Democrats.

He continued to double down on his criticism Sunday.

About 40 minutes after defending his initial attack as not racist, Trump followed up with a tweet calling Cummings “racist.” Trump did not include an explanation on why he was describing the African American congressman as racist.

“If racist Elijah Cummings would focus more of his energy on helping the good people of his district, and Baltimore itself, perhaps progress could be made in fixing the mess that he has helped to create over many years of incompetent leadership. His radical ‘oversight’ is a joke!,” Trump tweeted.
