RACE IN AMERICA - Cummings vs Trump

Let me make it clear, TRUMI IS A RACIST.  He just does not recognize it, like so many others.

"Why Trump’s verbal assault on Cummings and Baltimore sounds familiar" PBS NewsHour 7/29/2019


SUMMARY:  President Trump is verbally assaulting the city of Baltimore.  On Monday, civil rights activist Al Sharpton and Maryland Republicans Gov. Larry Hogan and former Lt. Gov. Michael Steele all slammed Trump’s attacks on Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md) and Baltimore, which he [Trump] called a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.”  Lisa Desjardins reports on how Trump’s words are again stoking racial tensions.

The serial lier.....
"Trump says Cummings lied about conditions in migrant detention facilities.  Did he?" PBS NewsHour 7/29/2019


SUMMARY:  President Trump’s recent verbal attacks on Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md) were sparked by the congressman’s criticism of migrant facilities on the U.S.-Mexico border.  The White House disputed Cummings’ characterizations.  So what do we actually know about what’s going on in these detention centers?  Judy Woodruff talks to the National Immigration Forum’s Ali Noorani about a “lack of transparency.”

"In Ohio, do Republican voters care about Trump’s remarks on race?" PBS NewsHour 8/2/2019


SUMMARY:  President Trump prompted more controversy this week by insulting a lawmaker of color, Rep. Elijah Cummings, and his Maryland district.  Trump called Baltimore “filthy” and “infested,” terms he has used before to refer to urban areas with majority black populations.  Ahead of Trump's rally in southwestern Ohio, Yamiche Alcindor asked voters there what they think of the President’s rhetoric on race.
