Elijah Cummings, D-M.D., had his house in Congressional District 7 robbed — just hours before President Donald Trump labeled the district a crime and rodent-infested area.
Baltimore Police are investigating a home invasion of Cummings house in Baltimore that was broken into early Saturday morning.

The burglary occurred around 3:40 a.m. in the 2000 block of Madison Avenue, local station WJZ reports. There is no report on whether any property was stolen.
Cummings home was robbed just hours before Trump made a tweet that outraged the left when he suggested the area was “infested” with crime and rodents.
….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

Democrats criticized Trump’s remarks as insensitive and politically incorrect, despite Cummings himself having called the area “drug-infested” in the past. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-V.T., called Cummings’ Baltimore district a “third-world country” in 2015.

Trump hasn’t backed down on his criticism.
“Baltimore’s numbers are the worst in the United States on Crime and the Economy,” Trump said Monday. “Billions of dollars have been pumped in over the years, but to no avail. The money was stolen or wasted. Ask Elijah Cummings where it went. He should investigate himself with his Oversight Committee!”
At a campaign rally in Cincinnati on Thursday, Trump again criticized Democrats for their mismanagement of inner cities.
“No one has paid a higher price for the far-left destructive agenda than Americans living in our nation’s inner cities,” Trump said, drawing cheers in the packed arena.
“We send billions and billions and billions for years and years and it’s stolen money, and it’s wasted money.”
