Trump Goes Nuclear on Cummings: 'His District Is a Disgusting, Rat and Rodent Infested Mess'

House Oversight and Reform Committee Chair Elijah Cummings, D-Md., leads a meeting to call for subpoenas.

President Donald Trump has completely had it with Elijah Cummnings, the U.S. Representative for Maryland's 7th congressional district and House Oversight Committee Chairman.

Earlier, Rep. Cummings made headlines after he called the treatment of illegal immigrant children "government-sponsored child abuse."

"We have seen cases where the administration has deported parents without their children and still, to this day, have not reunited those families," he said. "This is government-sponsored child abuse ... on a grand scale."

If Rep. Cummings thought President Trump would take this lying down, he's sadly mistaken. The president responded this morning with an epic tweetstorm.

"Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border," president Trump tweeted. "When actually," he went on, "his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA..."

The border, the president continued, "is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded."

"Cumming District," on the other hand, "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."

President Trump finished his tweetstorm by wondering why so "much money [is] sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States. No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen?"

And then: "Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!"
