Early Monday morning, President Donald Trump took aim at Rev. Al Sharpton on Twitter, on the heels of making disparaging remarks about Baltimore and Rep. Elijah Cummings.
“I have known Al for 25 years. Went to fights with him & Don King, always got along well. He ‘loved Trump!'” Trump tweeted.
“He would ask me for favors often. Al is a con man, a troublemaker, always looking for a score. Just doing his thing. Must have intimidated Comcast/NBC. Hates Whites & Cops!”
Before Trump’s latest Twitter rant, Sharpton posted a photo on Sunday showing that he was heading to Baltimore, where he will hold a press conference with former RNC Chair Michael Steele. According to Sharpton, the press conference will touch on such topics as Black economic growth and, of course, Trump’s recent comments about Baltimore.
Over the weekend, Trump attacked Baltimore saying the city is “a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess” and said that “no human being would want to live there.” He also referred to Cummings as a racist.
And on Monday, Trump’s anti-Cummings tweets continued, saying if “Democrats are going to defend the Radical Left ‘Squad’ and King Elijah’s Baltimore Fail, it will be a long road to 2020.”
