Eric Trump doubles down on his father's Twitter attack on Baltimore

Eric Trump doubles down on his father's Twitter attack on Baltimore”

Trump insisted that he himself was not racist, noting that "there is nothing racist in stating plainly what most people already know, that Elijah Cummings has done a bad job for the people of his district".

Many Democrats have complained about Trump's criticism of Cummings and Baltimore, but most have deflected the arguments Trump was making and had no rebuttals for the slew of stories and videos showing the state of Baltimore-including years of stories about growing problems with rat infestations-the crime statistics, and footage shared by Republican strategist Kimberly Klacik showing some parts of Cummings's district in the city.

"I have known Al for 25 years", he wrote.

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, a Republican who had considered challenging Mr Trump for the party's 2020 presidential nomination, blasted the President's tweets in an interview with WBAL radio, saying they were further fuelling division and political anger nationwide. He said the two "always got along well" and attended boxing matches together.

Trump also targeted Sharpton, who has defended Cummings and the congressman's district and was expected to address the issue at an event in Baltimore later on Monday.

The former vice president, who was recently forced to apologize for praising segregationists, took to social media on Monday to repudiate Trump for accusing Sharpton of being a "con man" and "troublemaker".

Steele also spoke out about Trump over the weekend, raising a question in a tweet about "how much more of Trump's incessant whining, tweeting, bullying, & racism are we willing to put up with".

"If the Democrats are going to defend the Radical Left "Squad" and King Elijah's Baltimore Fail, it will be a long road to 2020", Trump wrote on Monday.

Critics have said Trump's attacks show how disconnected he is from serving as a leader of all of America, including its more racially diverse and politically liberal-leaning urban areas.

"President Trump does not pick the people he attacks because of colour".

"Our President has a hate agenda. That takes effort in a city two-thirds black and brown".

Eric, who is less involved in being his father's surrogate than his older brother Donald Trump Jr., blamed the situation in Baltimore on Democratic leadership - and also said other USA cities were suffering for the same reason.
