Carson tried to help – but Elijah Cummings made a big, big mistake.
President Trump incited anger from Democrats when he criticized “rat-infested” Baltimore – but it’s all blowing up on them.
When Trump pointed out the truth of Baltimore, the media took the Democrats’ side, ignoring numerous times Democrats criticized the very same city.
And then Trump’s head of HUD, Ben Carson, stepped out and offered help to Baltimore and take a tour of the city.
He even invited Rep. Elijah Cummings, the man who is responsible for Baltimore in Congress, to attend the tour.
Turns out, Cummings made another huge mistake.
From Daily Caller:
Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings declined an offer to tour a Baltimore Housing and Urban Development (HUD) facility with HUD secretary Ben Carson on Wednesday.
HUD invited Cummings to tour the facility with Carson on Tuesday, however Cummings rejected the invitation, the Daily Caller has learned.
Are we really surprised that Cummings rejected Carson’s offer to tour Baltimore’s HUD facility?
Democrats moan all day that Trump is “dividing” the country. But when Carson offered an olive branch to Cummings—the Democrat rejected it right out of hand.
Carson nicely said he guessed there could have been a scheduling conflict. Right.
It seems like Cummings isn’t too concerned with Baltimore’s HUD facility. Even though HUD can dramatically improve the lives of Baltimore residents.
We’ve reported in the past how Carson, as leader of HUD, has brought numerous businesses and investments to other hard-hit inner cities.
It’s no secret that Carson is turning around communities across America. His influence as HUD leader will have a lasting impact.
He can and certainly will do the same for Baltimore. That’s a win-win no matter your politics.
So why is Cummings “too busy” to attend the tour? Why is a man elected to improve the lives of people in that very city unwilling to do anything to help?
Is it because he, like so many other Democrats, is all talk, no action?
He had no problem insulting Trump, calling him a racist, over comments about Baltimore. But when Cummings had an opportunity to do good for the city, he’s a ghost.
Doesn’t seem like Cummings really cares about Baltimore, or the rest of Maryland for that matter.
SHARE if you think Mr. Cummings shouldn’t get another federal dollar for Baltimore!
