Trump Responds To Reports Of Burglary At Rep. Cummings Home

The president recently addressed reports of a break-in at the home of Trump critic and Democrat congressman Elijah Cummings. In a tweet Friday, President Trump responded to the reported Baltimore burglary by calling it “really bad news.”
Cummings released a statement on the break-in Friday, saying a person attempted to gain entry into his home last Saturday morning. He said he scared away the intruder once he yelled at him to leave. The congressman then thanked the Baltimore Police Department for their swift response to the incident.

The president’s tweet comes after he continued to criticize Cummings and the city of Baltimore at his Ohio rally Thursday night.
“The homicide rate in Baltimore is significantly higher than El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala…yet Democrats, and they’ve run it for many years, want to spend hundreds of billions of dollars on illegal migrants instead of supporting their own struggling communities — no good, no good,” he said to the crowd gathered in Cincinnati.
The president has refuted claims his comments against Baltimore and Cummings are racist by saying he is the “least racist person in the world.”
