Christie on Trump: Angry tweeting at Cummings won't fix anything

Trump threatens France with 'reciprocal action' for digital tax

The president's tweets on Saturday, which used racist language about Cummings' district and Baltimore in general, came after a segment on Fox News program "Fox and Friends" wherein the hosts wrung their hands over conditions in the Maryland city. His radical "oversight" is a joke! Later Monday, Sharpton is set to hold a press conference in Baltimore with former Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele, a Republican, "to address Trump's remarks & bi-partisan outrage in the black community".

Like in his 2016 campaign, Trump has made race front and center while Democrats also grapple with the issue as they seek to select a 2020 presidential nominee from a almost two dozen candidates, including a several racial minorities and women.

Mick Mulvaney, the acting White House chief of staff, defended Trump Sunday.

I understand that everything that Donald Trump says is offensive to some people. "It's how he's done in the past and he'll continue to do in the future". "This is a moral, defining moment in America" while Kamala Harris, who like Booker is black, said she was "proud" to have her campaign headquarters in Cummings's district and called Trump's attack "disgraceful". "If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very unsafe & filthy place", the president tweeted.

Trump wrote Cummings' Baltimore district is "FAR WORSE and more dangerous" than the conditions at the border. He concluded by calling Cummings a "racist".

Cummings then urged the president to aid him in providing for his district by helping pass a bill that would allow the government to negotiate for lower drug prices. "Up in New Hampshire - I won New Hampshire because New Hampshire is a drug-infested den - is coming from the southern border", Trump told Nieto on the call. "Cummings has done nothing but milk Baltimore dry, but the public is getting wise to the bad job that he is doing!"

Cummings and other liberal politicians, as well as many in the news media, quickly denounced Trump's statements as racist. I'm not going to bite the bait. When Cummings was asked by Paul Kane of the Washington Post about the two hugging again he said "interaction, man".

"Trump's lies and racism never end", said Sanders. "And the mayor and our entire team feel very strongly that we need to champion cities". "We all reject racist attacks against him and support his steadfast leadership". "Not tear it down.", Biden said. Sen. He adds, referring to French President Emmanuel Macron: "We will announce a substantial reciprocal action on Macron's foolishness shortly". "That is a disgrace".

In reality, Trump verbally attacks cities and states where he has a real or imagined issue.

France hasn't backed off from its planned digital tax even after the USA suggested it may use trade tools against the levy.

All four lawmakers of color are American citizens and three of the four were born in the U.S. The House later voted largely along party lines to condemn his "racist comments". Trump's attack also insinuated that Cummings is somehow profiting while his constituents suffer.
