Monty Mann Trump responded back to Cummings who had been attacking him for weeks Trump pointed out that west Baltimore is a sh!t hole which it is not a single person on this thread would live there. Cummings has been their representative for 30 yrs and not bettered his districtt in anyway. Bernie Sanders also pointed this out. Cummings happens to be a POC. That doesnt make Trump racist it makes him overly honest in this situation. the race card is old he has done more for POC than any recent president including Obama
