    National Press Club Luncheon

    Baltimore Sun: Elijah Cummings urges Trump to visit Baltimore, calls for end to ‘racist language’ by leaders

    “Those in the highest levels of the government must stop invoking fear, using racist language and encouraging reprehensible behavior," the Baltimore Democrat said in a National Press Club speech in which he renewed his call — in stronger terms — for the Republican president to come see the “thousands of people in Baltimore who are working hard every day.”

    “We all want decency and respect,” Cummings said at the club in downtown Washington. “I want President Trump to come to my district — oh, God, I want him to come." He said he had not been able to reach Trump to invite him.

    Washington Post: Cummings calls for end to ‘hateful rhetoric’ that inspires mass shooters

    “Those at the highest levels of government must stop invoking fear, using racist language and encouraging reprehensible behavior,” he said at the National Press Club in Washington. “As a country we finally must say that enough is enough. That we are done with the hateful rhetoric. That we are done with the mass shootings. That we are done with the white supremacists, domestic terrorists who are terrorizing our country and fighting against everything America stands for.”

    Elijah Cummings calls on Congress to cancel recess

    “Yes, you've got people dying. Come on now," Cummings said during a speech at the National Press Club in Washington. "I think we have a real to do whatever is necessary to save lives." Cummings said he has not spoken to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi if she intends to call back the House but he would, "totally support her if she did.”

    Impeachment

    Bloomberg: Democrats Prepare Lawsuit to Force McGahn to Testify

    Invoking the Democrats’ efforts to seek backing in the courts for congressional subpoenas, Cummings said, “The day that any administration disobeys a court order, then I’m for impeachment because, you see, by that time, we’re in trouble. We’re in big trouble.”

    Trump’s Tweets

    Vanity Fair: AMERICA’S ANGER PROBLEM RUNS DEEPER THAN DONALD TRUMP

    To recap, a few weeks ago Trump launched an early-morning tweetstorm against “the Squad,” a quartet of nonwhite Democratic women in Congress, suggesting they “go back” to their countries of birth (in three out of four cases, the United States) and fix them before criticizing the United States. When that caused more of an uproar than he seemed to expect, Trump chose to double down, prompting a crowd at one of his rallies to break into a chant of “send her back” aimed at Representative Ilhan Omar, an immigrant from Somalia. Even some Trump voters thought his tweets had crossed the line, let alone the chant. Temporarily thrown, Trump backpedaled and disavowed the sentiment, but then he began to launch attacks on the city of Baltimore and its African American congressman, Elijah Cummings, even taunting Cummings when Cummings’s house was burglarized. Then came the mass shootings.
