The Wire star Dominic West has beaten Donald Trump back after President Rep. Elijah Cummings on the weekend struck as & # 39; a cheeky bully & # 39; and said Congressman's Baltimore district was a & # 39; rat and rodent-ridden mess & # 39; is.
West, who played in all five seasons of The Wire as detective Jimmy McNulty, added his voice to the growing impact on Trump's tweets.
The English actor has described the American president as a & # 39; lonely hysterical neurotic & # 39; who doesn't understand the & # 39; vivid & # 39; Baltimore community.

Who was Fred West?
Fred West was an English serial killer who committed at least 12 murders in Gloucestershire between 1967 and 1987.
West choked himself in his cell after he and his wife, Rosemary West, were charged with nine murders, and he for another three murders.
One of the couple's victims, Lucy Partington, was the cousin of novelist Martin Amis.
Amis wrote about the murder of his cousin in his memoir, & # 39; Experience & # 39 ;.

& # 39; What would a lone hysterical neurotic who uses hand cleanser all day understand about a vibrant community like Baltimore? & # 39; He told The Guardian.
He then went on to make a comparison between Trump and the English serial killer Fred West.
& # 39; Martin Amis said about Fred West the serial killer that he was a & # 39; colossus of falsehood & # 39; It is an appropriate description of Trump. & # 39;
He added to calls from Democratic Congressman Rashida Tlaib to accuse & # 39; the mother ***** & # 39 ;.
West is not the only star of the acclaimed Baltimore-based crime drama The Wire, which has spoken of Trump's latest Twitter controversy.
The creator of the show, who is a Baltimore resident, said on Saturday: & # 39; If this idle race hate fraud actually had to go to West Baltimore for five minutes to meet one of the American citizens who stand there, he would get wet themselves. & # 39;
After Trump's tweets caused anger online, a Twitter campaign with the hashtag #WEAREBALTIMORE went viral.
Simon tweeted a picture of himself with a guitar while sitting in front of his house in Baltimore.
& # 39; #WEAREBALTIMORE and there is a block party today in my south-facing street, & # 39; tweeted Simon.
& # 39; This is a city of good Americans who earn more than a sad, hollow and self-assured failure of a man like their president.
& # 39; @realDonaldTrump is a permanent spot on our country. & # 39;
The president received a kickback for tweets on the weekend in which he launched a devastating attack on Democrat Congressman Elijah Cummings and the seventh congressional district of Maryland.

& # 39; Representative, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully who shouted at the great men and women of Border Patrol and shouted about Southern Border conditions, while his Baltimore district is MUCH MORE Worse and more dangerous. His district is considered the worst in the US, & Trump wrote.
& # 39; As proved during a Congress tour last week, the Border is clean, efficient and well-run, just very busy. Cumming (sic) District is a disgusting mess affected by rats and rodents. If he spent more time in Baltimore, he might be able to help clean up this very dangerous and dirty place, & the president continued.
He added: “Why is so much money being sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst flight and the most dangerous anywhere in the United States.
& # 39; No one would want to live there. Where does all that money go? How much has been stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately! & # 39;
Cummings shot back shortly after in his own tweets: & # 39; Mr. President, I go to my district every day. Every morning I wake up and go fight for my neighbors. & # 39;
It comes a week after Cummings exploded with Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan about conditions in facilities used to detain migrants and accommodate unaccompanied migrant children on the southern border.
& # 39; Which means that if a child is in his stool, he cannot shower! & # 39; Cummings shouted at McAleenan on July 18. & # 39; Come on man, what's that about? & # 39;
Cummings' comments were highlighted on Saturday morning in a segment about Fox and Friends, which Trump may have viewed from the White House.
In the segment, a republican strategist from Baltimore, Kimberly Klacik talked about miserable conditions facing residents in parts of the city.
& # 39; There is a crisis on the border, but there is also a crisis in Baltimore, & # 39; Klacik said. & # 39; Congressman Cummings is the most dangerous district in America. & # 39;

& # 39; There are abandoned terraced houses full of trash, homeless addicts, empty needles they've used, and it's really next door, so it attracts roaches, rodents, you name it, & # 39; Klacik said.
Democrats reacted furiously to Trump's comments and called them & # 39; racist & # 39; and unpatriotic.
House speaker Nancy Pelosi led the charge and said in a statement: & We all reject racist attacks against (Cummings) and support his steadfast leadership. & # 39;
Rep. Rashida Tlaib, a member of the & # 39; house democrat team, tweeted at Trump that Cummings & # 39; is centered on American values that you * will * never * understand. He is a fighter for the people and a leader that you will never be. & # 39;
