President Trump has unleashed another round of racist tweets, this time attacking Baltimore and the district represented by Maryland Democratic Congressman and House Oversight Committee chairman Elijah Cummings. Trump called it a “rat and rodent infested mess," and said no human being would want to live there. EMBED tweet:

The Baltimore Sun’s response: “Better to have a few rats than to be one.” But speaking of rodents, they exist in many of the apartment buildings Trump's son-in-law owns in Baltimore. Jared Kushner’s real estate company owns thousands of apartments there, and tenants have long complained of squalid conditions, such as mice, black mold, raw sewage leaks.
