President Trump focused his anger on Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Monday when he opened a third front in his fight in Baltimore.
& # 39; Crazy Bernie Sanders recently equated the city of Baltimore with a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY! Based on that statement, I assume that Bernie should now be called a racist, just like a republican would if he used that term and that standard! & # 39; he stormed.
Trump further claimed that he would gladly help the leaders of the urban area to clean up the city if they asked for his help.
& # 39; The fact is that Baltimore can be brought back, perhaps even to new heights of success and glory, but not with King Elijah and that crew. When the Baltimore leaders want to see the city rise again, I'm in a very nice oval-shaped office waiting for your call! he tweeted.
Sanders compared Baltimore in 2015 with a third world country. Yet he criticized Trump in a Sunday morning interview for invading a predominantly black district in a claim that the & # 39; infected & # 39; is and and a respected African-American congressman who represented the area.
But the incumbent president also had 2015 comments that would haunt him on Monday. He had blamed President Barack Obama for crime in the capital of Maryland at the time and said the country's leader should go to Baltimore to calm racial tensions.

Sanders claimed in 2015: & # 39; Anyone who has taken the walk that we have taken in this neighborhood would not think that you are in a rich nation. You would think you were in a third world country & # 39;

Both Sanders and Trump made the original comments about Baltimore while campaigning for the respective nominations of their parties in 2016.
A prominent candidate in 2020, the Senator from Vermont was asked on CNN on Sunday to comment on Trump's attack on Baltimore and his US congress representative Elijah Cummings.
Sanders told on Sunday CNN: & # 39; I find it interesting that when we have rural Republican districts, life expectancy drops, where the inner city is boarded up, where people are struggling.
& # 39; And people struggle in rural America, they struggle in urban America, they struggle in suburbs of America, & # 39; he said on CNN on Sunday.
& # 39; Our job is to bring people together to improve life for all people, not to have a racist president who attacks people because they are African-Americans. That is a shame and that is why we will beat this president. & # 39;
But a clip recorded on the campaign track in 2015, in which the presidential candidate was recorded, suggests that the area showed no signs that it was in a developed economy, referring to infrastructure and jobs.
The clip was excavated by a Twitter account called Trump & # 39; s War Room and was shared in the wake of the backlash that Trump received because he said the district of Rep. Elijah Cummings was infected with rats.
The complete comments from Sanders at the time were: & # 39; Anyone who has taken the walk that we have taken in this neighborhood would not think that you are in a rich nation. You would think you were in a third world country.
& # 39; But today we are talking about a community in which half of the people have no job. We are talking about a community in which hundreds of buildings are uninhabitable. & # 39;
The comments were not the first time Sanders chose the congress district because of special criticism. In 2016, he used Baltimore again as an example of America's disproportionate distribution of wealth.
& # 39; Rep, Elijah Cummings is a cheeky bully, screaming and screaming at the great men and women of Border Patrol about the conditions at the Southern Border, while his Baltimore district is MUCH MORE Worse and more dangerous, & # 39; tweeted Trump
He tweeted at the time: & # 39; Residents of the poorest districts of Baltimore have a shorter lifespan than people living under dictatorship in North Korea. That's a shame. & # 39;
On Saturday, Trump faced a severe setback, including allegations of racism, after he Cummings & # 39; congress district & # 39; had called a disgusting mess ravaged by rodents. & # 39;
& # 39; Representative, Elijah Cummings has been a cheeky 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, & # 39; tweeted Trump.
On Saturday, Trump was faced with fierce setbacks, including allegations of racism, after he Cummings & # 39; congress district & # 39; called a disgusting mess ravaged by rodents & # 39;
& # 39; His district is considered the worst in the US as proven last week during a convention trip, the border is clean, efficient and well run, just very busy. Cumming 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, & he said.
Leading democrats call Trump's tweets racist, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and senator Elizabeth Warren, a candidate for 2020 as president.
Baltimore Mayor Bernard Young said that Trump is a disappointment for the people of Baltimore, our country and for the world.
