After President Trump criticized Rep. Elijah Cummings over the problems Baltimore is having, many condemned him as a racist. After taking Cummings and the city to task for their longstanding problems with poverty, crime and political corruption, the media went into attack mode on President Trump.
Let’s hear what the actual Baltimore residents have to say when it comes to Rep. Elijah Cummings and the city of Baltimore. It probably comes as no surprise that they agree with President Trump.
Baltimore resident Michelle on CNN’s Victor Blackwell suggesting Trump was racist for his tweet:
“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”

Baltimore resident says:
"I believe what the President said about Mr. Cummings is exactly right. I don't think that it was an indictment of the city, I think it was an indictment of the leadership in Baltimore city" pic.twitter.com/bQjjZrI1jf

Michelle Klacik pointed out that she disagrees that Trump is racist. She even pointed out how she was glad that she is “glad that Trump put Cummings on blast.”
“Trump is not racist,” Michelle said. “I’m glad that [Trump] put [Cummings] on blast because people in West Baltimore been putting Elijah Cummings on blast for years — ever since he’s been in office.”
“He never did anything for us. If he supposed to be from this neighborhood … the rats just didn’t come. These houses just didn’t get torn down, they’ve been like this,” she explained. “If he would take the time out to come over here and see how things are maybe he’d be better at his job.”
The media is pushing their usual narrative that President Trump is racist when actually he is exposing the failure of the leaders of Baltimore.
You know things are tough when the media jumps to the aid of “conman” Al Sharpton.

Things are tough when the Democrats are rushing to defend the Reverend Al Sharpton.
Sadly it’s not the first time this has happened. Last November Nancy Pelsoi thanked Al Sharpton for “saving America.” How insane is that?
“We’re going to be visionary, we’re going to be unifying, we’re going to be healing, we’re going to be transparent in how we do this. We’re going to be respectful of other views. But we’re going to try to find our common ground where we can. We have a responsibility to do that, but where we can’t, stand our ground like a rock. That’s what Thomas Jefferson advised us to do.
Thank you for helping take back America. People all over the place are calling me, writing, in airports, here and there, saying, ‘Thank you for saving America.’ I give those thanks to you. Thank you for saving America. Reverend Sharpton, thank you for saving America.”
Yes, you read that right. Nancy Pelosi thanked Al Sharpton for “saving the country.”
