It’s almost becoming a reflex that when President Trump says something, Democrats call him and/or his supporters racists.
On Sunday morning on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper, Bernie Sanders called Trump a “president who attacks American cities” and of course, a “racist.”
Bernie Sanders on Trump's attacks on Elijah Cummings: "It's unbelievable that we have a President of the U.S. who attacks American cities, who attacks Americans … Our job is to bring people together … not to have a racist president who attacks people."

Trump, once again, caused controversy as he called out Rep. Elijah Cummings for his job performance of his home district in Baltimore. He went on to call the city “a disgusting rat and rodent infested” and a “very dangerous place.”
The president really needs to stay off Twitter, not posting every single thought that makes his way into his mind. He creates a lot of this unnecessary problems.
But will the media call out Bernie Sanders for similar comments he made in 2016 and 2015?
Sanders, after touring the city, hoping to secure their votes as he mounted his first run for president, said:
“Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation. You would think that you were in a Third World country.”
Sanders also sent out this Tweet in 2016 about the city.
Residents of Baltimore’s poorest boroughs have lifespans shorter than people living under dictatorship in North Korea. That is a disgrace.
