President Donald Trump on Monday opened new fronts in the bitter tirade he launched over the weekend against Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings and the city of Baltimore, lobbing insults at civil rights leader Rev. Al Sharpton and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. "I have known Al for 25 years. Went to fights with him & Don King, always got along well," Trump wrote online, referencing the famed black boxing promoter. "He 'loved Trump!' He would ask me for favors often," the president wrote of Sharpton. "Al is a con man, a troublemaker, always looking for a score. Just doing his thing. Must have intimidated Comcast/NBC. Hates Whites & Cops!" Trump's insult accompanied a re-posted message from Sharpton, in which the reverend tweeted a picture of himself on what appeared to be an airport escalator and wrote: "Arrived in DC from Atlanta, headed to Baltimore. Long day but can't stop."
Beginning Saturday, Trump has unloaded a steady torrent of vitriolic tweets targeting Cummings and Baltimore, which is partly included in the lawmaker's predominantly black district. Cummings is chairman of the powerful House Committee on Oversight and Reform, and is overseeing several investigations into the administration.
