TRUMP: ‘Crazy Bernie’ Should be ‘Labeled a Racist’ After Calling Baltimore a ‘Third World Country’

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.29.19

President Trump called-out Bernie Sanders and the mainstream media Monday; saying the Democratic Socialist should be labeled “a racist” after referring to Baltimore as a “third world country.”

“Crazy Bernie Sanders recently equated the City of Baltimore to a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY! Based on that statement, I assume that Bernie must now be labeled a Racist, just as a Republican would if he used that term and standard!” Trump tweeted.

“The fact is, Baltimore can be brought back, maybe even to new heights of success and glory, but not with King Elijah and that crew. When the leaders of Baltimore want to see the City rise again, I am in a very beautiful oval shaped office waiting for your call!” he added.

The President is referring to comments Sanders made in 2015.

“Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation,” Sanders said during a visit to the city’s West Baltimore section in 2015, the Baltimore Sun reported. “You would think that you were in a Third World country.”

“We’re talking about a community in which there are hundreds of buildings that are uninhabitable,” he added

WATCH: Al Sharpton Says America Should Stop Funding The Jefferson Memorial

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.16.17

Speaking with Charlier Rose on Tuesday, Reverend Al Sharpton stated his belief that the public should no longer fund the Jefferson Memorial located in Washington D.C. due to the fact that the second president was a slave owner.

Sharpton made his comment after Rose asked if he believed that the Jefferson Memorial should be removed.

“I think that people need to understand when people that were in enslaved and robbed of even the right to marry — and had forced sex with their slave masters — this is personal to us,” Sharpton said. “My great grandfather was a slave in South Carolina—owned by the family, ended up, Strom Thurmond was one of them, a newspaper discovered—so this is personal. This is not some kind of removed discussion for us. Our families were victims of this.”

“When you look at the fact that public monuments are supported by public funds, you’re asking me to subsidize the insult to my family,” Sharpton added.

“Then I repeat: Thomas Jefferson had slaves,” Rose pressed.

“And I repeat that the public should not be paying to uphold somebody who has had that kind of background,” Sharpton repeated.

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.29.19

President Trump slammed Al Sharpton in a series of fiery tweets Monday morning; labeling the activist a “con man” who “hates cops.”

“I have known Al for 25 years. Went to fights with him & Don King, always got along well. He “loved Trump!” 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!” posted the President on social media.

“Al Sharpton would always ask me to go to his events. He would say, ‘it’s a personal favor to me.’ Seldom, but sometimes, I would go. It was fine. He came to my office in T.T. during the presidential campaign to apologize for the way he was talking about me. Just a conman at work!” he added.

President Trump called-out Rep. Elijah Cummings over the weekend; saying he “milked Baltimore dry” after labeling the city a “rat-infested mess.”

“If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place,” Trump wrote, saying that Cummings’ “district is considered the Worst in the USA” and “no human being would want to live there.”
