Trump wants everyone talking about his racism instead of the investigation that Rep. Cummings is doing into Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump’s crimes.
Trump launches a racist attack to cover up Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump’s crimes
Trump’s attack on Rep. Cummings’ district was inspired by Fox News:
….As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 27, 2019
Cummings yelled at the acting DHS Secretary after the claim was made that the Trump administration is doing a good job while children are being abused.
The reality is that Trump is angry at Rep. Cummings over an investigation that Chairman Cummings and the House Oversight Committee are doing into the illegal use of private email to conduct government business by Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, and other top administration officials. Trump is upset because Rep. Cummings has been trying to investigate these crimes for years, and he has finally gotten to the point where he is about to subpoena the president’s daughter and son in law.
Trump is using racism as a distraction
Trump is a racist. His racism is not a political strategy as much as it is a lifetime belief system. Anyone who discusses Trump’s attack on Cummings without mentioning the investigation that Rep. Cummings is doing is only telling half of the story. The racism is an ugly attack on the fabric of American society, but the purpose of that attack is to distract from the activities of a crime family.
