It may be time for ‘Old Elijah Cummings’ to resign after all.
More than 20years in service to the people of ‘Baltimore’ and nothing to show for it, Newly surfaced video expose Elijah Cummings. Put an end to the “Corruption”.
The Trump campaign uncovered video Wednesday of Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings calling his district in Baltimore “drug-infested” in 1999.
“This morning, I left my community of Baltimore, a drug-infested area, where a lot of the drugs we are talking about today have already taken the lives of so many children,” Cummings said during a 1999 congressional hearing. “The same children that I watched 14 or 15 years ago as they grew up now walking around like zombies.”
“This is only 40 miles away from here,” he added.

The resurfaced video comes as President Donald Trump has been accused of racism for referring to Baltimore as “rodent infested” and a place that no human would want to live.
President Trump on Tuesday said Baltimore and other Democrat-controlled cities have been corruptly run and suggested local US Rep. Elijah Cummings use his House committee to investigate where the billions of dollars have gone.
Trump partially blamed Cummings, who has represented part of Baltimore for over 20 years.
He said; “Baltimore has been very badly mishandled for many years,as you know, Congressman Cummings has been there for a very long time. He has had an iron hand on it. It is a corrupt city, all you have to do is look at the facts. The government over the years has pumped in billions and billions of dollars to no avail. To absolutely no avail.”
Trump added Tuesday that Baltimore is “an example of what corrupt government leads to.”
He said its money has “been misspent. It’s been missing. It’s been stolen with a lot of corrupt government, and, as you know, Cummings has been in charge.”
