Trump launched his destructive attack on the & # 39; dangerous and dirty & # 39; city ​​where & # 39; no human would want to live & # 39; on Twitter on Saturday, digging for Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings who criticized the president for the circumstances at the southern border.

The city's newspaper, the Baltimore Sun, shot back with a destruction opinion piece entitled & # 39; It is better to have a few rats than to be one & # 39 ;, published on Saturday night, where the editors have the & # 39; unfair & # 39; President threw and said he was just as responsible for the Baltimore mistakes as Cummings.

& # 39; If there are any problems here, including rodents, they are as much his responsibility as anyone else, perhaps more because he has the most powerful office in the country, & opinion says.

The editors of the Baltimore Sun published a devastating op-ed entitled & # 39; It's better to have a few rats than to be one & # 39; which the president threw for attacking the city and Rep. Elijah Cummings on Saturday, hours after Trump destroyed the city as a disgusting mess ravaged by rodents and rodents & # 39;

The piece further accused Trump of attacking Cummings, who is black, and other African-American congressmen. It also pointed out that Trump had spelled the name of Cummings incorrectly in his Twitter tirade.

& # 39; It's not hard to see what's going on here. The congressman is a thorn in the eyes of this president, and Mr. Trump considers attacking African-American members of Congress as good politics because it warms both the cockles of the white supremacists who love him and so much of the thoughtful causes people who & # 39; t to shout, & said the piece.

Trump & # 39; s smear campaign of the city was set in motion when Cummings complained about border conditions and border control, claiming that the conditions & # 39; clean, efficient, and well-run & # 39; and that Baltimore & # 39; MUCH WORSE and more dangerous & # 39; used to be.

& # 39; Of course they are not, & # 39; said the op-ed about those boundary conditions for migrants. & # 39; Unless you're okay with all the overpopulation, squalor, cages and hardship that can be found in what the Department of Homeland Security's own inspector general recently & # 39; called a ticking time bomb & # 39;. & # 39;

The op-ed said the president jumped to attack Baltimore after Fox & Friends broadcast a segment that criticized the city and compared its poor communities with the camps.

& # 39; This is a president who likes to cut himself off with the least provocation. And given Mr. Cummings' criticism of US border policy, the various investigations he has started as the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, his willingness to call Mr. Trump a racist for his recent attacks on first-year congress women and the fact that "Fox & Friends & # 39; had recently aired a critical part of the city, and Baltimore must have been irresistible in a Pavlovian way & # 39 ;, said the op-ed.

& # 39; Fox News called, the president drooled and his thumbs came into action on his cell phone & # 39 ;, it said.

The editors said they would not sink into Trump's calling but threw him as unfit for office.

& # 39; We would tell the most dishonest man he ever had to occupy the Oval Office, the spotter of war heroes, the cheerful grab of women's private parts, the serial bankruptter of companies, the useful idiot of Vladimir Putin and the man who insisted that & # 39; well & # 39; was people & # 39; murderous neo-Nazis & # 39; s that he still doesn't fool most Americans by believing that he is even somewhat skilled in his current position, & # 39; said the op-ed.

& # 39; It's better to let some pests live in your neighborhood than to be one, & # 39; concluded it.

The Baltimore Sun was not the only one who returned to the president after disgracing the city.

Baltimore Mayor Bernard Young accused Trump for his anger and defended Rep. Cummings as a respected legislator.

& # 39; It is completely unacceptable for the political leader of our country to denigrate a vibrant American city like Baltimore and maliciously attack US representative Elijah Cummings a patriot and a hero, & # 39; Young said in a statement.

& # 39; Trump & # 39; s rhetoric is offensive and dangerous for the people he has sworn to represent. As a mayor of Baltimore, I stand in front of no one, not even the alleged leader of the free world, who attacks our big city or our representative in Congress.

& # 39; Trump, you are a disappointment for the people of Baltimore, our country and for the world, & he added.

House speaker Nancy Pelosi led elected democrats to reject Trump's comments and said in a statement: "We all reject racist attacks against (Cummings) and support his steadfast leadership."

Trump appeared on his defense on Sunday and shot back at Pelosi and said: & There is nothing wrong with the very obvious fact that Congressman Elijah Cummings did very badly for his district and the city of Baltimore & # 39;

Michelle Obama went to Twitter to share her subtle challenge for Trump's comments and shared a video clip from the Baltimore STEP team, the deadly ladies, that she saw performing in 2017.

& # 39; On #NationalDanceDay I scream out the deadly ladies, a STEP team from Baltimore that I saw performing in 2017. I am so proud of all of you – and everyone dancing today! & # 39; she shared.

In the clip, the women hear singing: & # 39; If they go low, we go high! & # 39; and & # 39; we do not bow to their level & # 39 ;.

But Trump appeared on his defense on Sunday and shot back at Pelosi and said: & There is nothing wrong with bringing out the obvious fact that Congressman Elijah Cummings has done a very bad job for his district and the city of Baltimore. & # 39;

He also called on his critics for using the & # 39; racing card & # 39; against him.

& # 39; The Democrats always play the Race Card, while in fact they have done so little for the great African-American people of our nation. Now, the lowest unemployment rate in American history and only gets better. Elia Cummings has failed badly! & # 39; Trump said.
