President Trump said Saturday morning, in one of his tweets, that Rep. Cummings' district "is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess" and that "no human being would want to live there."

However, since publishing those tweets, Trump has been accused of being racist.

On Sunday, he returned to defend those statements by tweeting that "there is nothing wrong with bringing out the very obvious fact that Congressman Elijah Cummings has done a very poor job for his district and the City of Baltimore."

He also accused the Democrats of always playing the Race Card.
