Elijah Cummings: Police Investigating a Break-In

Congressman Elijah Cummings might need to admit that President Trump has a point about his native Baltimore.

Police in Charm City are investigating an apparent break-in at Cummings’s home. It occurred in the early morning of July 27th, just hours before Trump fired off his first tweet criticizing Cummings and Baltimore. There’s no word on whether anything was taken.

Trump, in apparent retaliation for Cummings’s criticism of conditions at immigrant border camps, has ripped the congressman for not doing more to help his home district. (CBS News)

Hot Takes:

  • Maybe Trump could have been more diplomatic, but he’s not wrong about conditions in Baltimore.
  • Cummings would do well to acknowledge that Baltimore has some issues and could use more help.
  • What happened to Trump’s campaign promises to revitalize “inner cities”?
