President Donald Trump has slammed Rep. Elijah Cummings as 'a brutal bully,' saying that the congressman's Baltimore district is a 'rat and rodent infested mess.'
Trump's remarks in a series of tweets from the White House on Saturday morning referenced the House Oversight Committee Chairman's harsh remarks at an immigration hearing earlier this month.
It also follows Cummings' move to subpoena new White House records on Thursday, and a Saturday morning segment on Fox and Friends contrasting Cumming's concern for migrants at the border with conditions in his own district.
'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,' Trump wrote.
'As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming [sic] 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,' the president continued.
