#WeAreBaltimore: Trump’s Disgusting, Racist Attacks On Baltimore Get Drowned Out By People Who Love Their City

Accusing Donald Trump of racism is like calling the sky blue at this point, but it still needs to be done on a regular basis. It’s been happening a lot lately in regards to Trump’s continued attacks against Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, and others. Trump’s has been encouraging racist chants at his rallies to “send her back” to her country, though she is a naturalized citizen of the United States. Those chants were inspired by Trump’s own tweets about Omar, and Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib, who were all born in America.

One thing that can be said for Trump: he is ultimately only interested in himself. Investigations into his conduct and possible impeachment have him lashing out at different people this week, specifically Representative Elijah Cummings.

Rep. Cummings is a Democrat who represents Maryland’s 7th Congressional District, including West Baltimore, The Root reports. He is also the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, which is in charge of some of these Trump Triggering investigations. You know what that means! A series of racist tweets about Cummings, Baltimore, and whatever else he free associates with both:

Notice how elegantly he notes the accusations of racism, and then decides to call Cummings racist. ANYWAY.

If you’ve been to Baltimore, you know that Trump’s statements are as addled, incorrect, and horrifying as ever! And the residents of Baltimore are not standing for it. Using the hashtag #WeAreBaltimore, people are responding to Trump:

The hashtag was kicked off by reporter April Ryan, who has been the target of Trump’s racism herself. First, she made a joke about the vermin infesting the White House, before asking for people to defend Baltimore:

The people of Baltimore are defending Charm City because they live there and love it and want people to know the president’s characterization of it is completely delusional. But even people outside of Baltimore are disgusted with Trump and wanted to note the racism of his attacks on a black man and a city with a large population of African-American residents.

Trump seems determined to continue his attacks, but a lot of people are giving Rep. Cummings their full support. Especially in regards to those impeachment talks…
