Rev. Al Sharpton (D) and former Maryland lieutenant governor Michael Steele (R) addressed comments made by President Donald Trump who attacked Baltimore Congressman Elijah Cummings as a "bully" and the city of Baltimore as crime and rat-infested.

Sharpton joined Steele and a group of Black community leaders at an economic empowerment forum in Baltimore on Monday to discuss housing policies.

The purpose of the forum was sidetracked by Trump's tweets about Cummings and the city of Baltimore.

"Little did I know that Mr. Trump was going to, on the eve of this, attack the congressman from this city. Not only the congressman but the people of this city in the most bigoted and racist way," said Sharpton.

"I know Donald Trump. He's not mature enough to take criticism. He can't help it. He's like a child. Somebody say something, he reacts. He's thin-skinned and not really matured that well. But he has a particular venom for Blacks and people of color."

As Sharpton spoke to reporters, he was shouted down by a Trump supporter.

Cummings previously lashed out at the Trump administration for its immigration policies at the border. Trump hit back calling Cummings a "brutal bully."

Watch the press conference below.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Can we talk about people "accidentally" forgetting they have their baby/ies in the back seat on a hot summer day?

  • Guess Who

    I have heard many times that Baltimore is a cesspool. IDK if it is or not, I just HATE their accents.

  • speakinmymind

    So if you know he's thin skinned and immature, why pray tell are yall entertaining his foolishness?? For screentime and clout, because responding to him does absolutely nothing. He said wtf he said. What Rev. Al, Michael Steele and the mayor should have done is proceed with their meeting about housing policy and ignore his ass.

    The orange baboon has managed to bring out the 3rd grader in politicians, journalists and millions of Americans. He is winning. ??

  • samuel severino

    Trump was talking about the rat politicians in Baltimore and wanted people to look in their direction and start snooping around like he did with Ilhan Omar and her marriage to her brother. The politicians were given 2 BILLION DOLLARS to fix up Baltimore and they stole all of it for themselves.

    Now you understand why Cummings is always screaming about Trump. He was hoping that the spotlight would never shine on him and he would never have to answer about what he and his buddies did with the 2 billion dollars. Drain the swamp indeed.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Yew will neva convince me that folks can’t remember that they have kids in the byke seat. Yew ain neva that preoccupied to forget your kids. Neva

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah, I saw that case in NYC with the twins that died. Maybe it was a mistake, maybe not. We don't know for sure. Either way, he should do prison time for that, for criminally negligent homicide.
    We can't have parents just saying "Oops, my mistake..I'm so sorry" and let them walk free. Sends the wrong message. That would just make it too easy and convenient for parents to get rid of kids they dont want... or kids they want to cash in the life insurance money on.

  • SaltineCrackers

    That's what I'm thinking because I honestly can't understand how. I got in trouble this weekend for saying the guy in NY that left his Twins in the car, did it on purpose.

  • Cliffpetty

    Not bad not one bit. Trump speaking truth. Hell his delivery was out of spite, but if he was black there wouldnt be any uproar.

  • Jayde da Blade

    No Trump fan.
    But Baltimore. Philly. Michigan. Maryland they are pretty bad off..
    Some real ruff real hard ass shit going on..

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I think in his case he was supposed to drop off the kids at the babysitter before going to work, and was just absent minded and went straight to work. I can see that being possible. But 2 lives were lost. You gotta pay a price for that.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Right, but I was looking at some of the previous cases and most of the parents never face any charges. Negligence is negligence...the guy's story doesn't make any sense, how do you leave the house with 3 kids, drop 1 off and then not see the other 2 in the back before you go to work. Smh it pisses me off...those poor little babies ?

  • Raquel

    Maybe it's just me, but for some reason, Al Sharpton rubs me the wrong way each and every time I see him. Something about him......same with Messy Jesse.

  • Raquel

    I feel the same way. At this point, it's on purpose or you're really just dumb asf.

  • 11pink123

    same!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. I remember in the past seeing cases where the mother was out partying and left her kids home, and the kids started a house fire. The mama got charged with a crime in those cases, and rightly so. Same thing with this guy. Like you said, negligence is negligence.

  • SaltineCrackers

    He's a real life Vampire...I know someone who spent some time around him, they said the Man doesn't eat or sleep...the new Sharpton is a clone.

  • Alextra Ballard

    This is gonna be one extra messy election

  • gellie

    Betcha these same folks would NEVA forget their phone. But seriously...how do you forget you have 2 humans in your car? Not 1....TWO!!! They jibber, they jabber, you play music they like for a peaceful ride. There's just no way...these parents are murdering their babies and getting off with little to no time.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    discuss housing policies.
    ^^^^^^^
    Which pertains directly to Jared Kushner. Did he show up? I WILL WAIT.

  • The Art

    A press conference for what? Did Sharpton come up with a comprehensive plan for Baltimore and their needs? Was this press conference a challenge to Trump to be a president for ALL people by pushing Congress to pay for it? If not, they’re wasting everyone’s time!!

  • Karen Brady

    If he was a con man Trump would nominate him to his cabinet. HAHAHHHAHAHAHAHAHA.

  • samuel severino

    AMEN.
    He looks like a snake in the grass. And was it him or Jesse Jackson that helped plan the killing of MLK?

  • Lady_Elle

    So True!

  • samuel severino

    Why do you think Trump called them out? He wanted the media to look in their direction.

  • Gloria

    Al Sharpton is a snake and con man though. He was a known FBI informant and turned against black activists. Fuck him.

  • Karen Brady

    I hope you have a chair.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Sooooo Al Sharpton, were you begging Donald Trump to attend events or nah? I dont see your response to that allegation.

    In related news, I saw the first Trump 2020 campaign sticker today on this old white lady's car. This election is going to be interesting I think.

  • Karen Brady

    I said last week I'm toying with the idea of not even voting. For what? But of course I will. But still, it's all so disheartening. :-(.

  • Gloria

    Every election is messy.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Trump is just getting warmed up. All he's got is racial-baiting stuff to get his base stirred up. The economy is starting to slow down.. he's got nothing on healthcare.. no infrastructure plan... didn't get his wall with Mexico... his trade war with China has been a dud.. same thing with his tax cut that mostly benefited the rich. The man has nothing positive run on.
    Look for a whole lot more of this race-based stuff between now and election day.

  • Mo Laughz

    First of all.. we already know Al Sharpton is a con man, but it wasn't his place to say it. Sweep around your own front door first!

  • Karen Brady

    Not that fat Ross guy here in Georgia a few years back. They locked his nasty lying butt up. I actually saw the scene where the police were called to that day but I didn't know at the time what was going on. Lock them all up! Or leave them in a boiling hot car.

  • Karen Brady

    Years ago I had my nephew in the back seat and went to the store. I was visiting them in MD as a matter of fact so his mom gave me directions to the store. This child heard his mother telling me it's on the left. For 30 min all I heard from this 2 yr old was make a weft, make a weft Aunnie. Make a WEFFFFT! I couldn't have forgotten that boy if I tried.

  • Bushbabe

    Across walls, fences, and alleys, rats not only expose our boundaries of separation but make homes in them. "Rat Film" is a feature-length documentary that uses the rat—as well as the humans that love them, live with them, and kill them--to explore the history of Baltimore. "There's never been a rat problem in Baltimore, it's always been a people problem."
    “Rat Film,” a documentary that takes the decades-long fight waged against Baltimore’s rat population and uses it as a lens through which to look at how the city has addressed myriad social issues over the decades, airs tonight on PBS.

    The hour-long documentary from Baltimore filmmaker Theo Anthony, a crowd favorite at last May’s 19th Maryland Film Festival, airs at 10 p.m. on Maryland Public Television as the latest episode of PBS’s “Independent Lens” series. It repeats at 1 a.m. and 4 a.m.

  • Bushbabe

    From 1964 to 1977, at least 16 elected officials in Maryland were convicted of, or pleaded no contest to, a variety of crimes, almost all of which stemmed from political corruption investigations, according to Eberly’s research.

    They included:

    Former Baltimore County Executive Dale Anderson, who was convicted of 32 counts of extortion, conspiracy and tax evasion.
    Then-Vice President Spiro Agnew, the former Maryland governor who pleaded no contest to tax evasion stemming from a federal grand jury investigation of kickbacks in Baltimore County.
    Marvin Mandel, who as governor was convicted of 17 counts of mail fraud and a racketeering charge. Mandel’s conviction was eventually overturned.
    To try to crack down on corruption, the State Ethics Commission was created in 1979.

    ”What the hell – we should just take all this shit down. Ooh, you can smell the rats” - Mayor Pugh, 2018

  • Bushbabe

    While in isolation at her home, Pugh issued a defiant pledge last month to return to work. But that resolve gave way after federal agents raided her home and City Hall office a week ago. She became the second Baltimore mayor in a decade to quit in connection with a criminal investigation; Democratic Mayor Sheila Dixon resigned in 2010.

  • EMILY POST

    They don't need to address Trump... They need to address the Problems in those districts..... If they were addressing the problems in that District for real they would not face all the criticism....

  • SaltineCrackers

    I remember him, he was one of the few they had proof on. I dont think the authorities dig enough...yes! Lock them up in a car.

  • samuel severino

    Ding ding ding. We have a winner!

  • Bushbabe

    The truth is that what’s happening in places like Baltimore has nothing to do with race. But it has everything to do with politics and inept Democratic lawmakers who have turned their backs on their most vulnerable constituents.

    ALLEGATION: Baltimore is considered the worst-run city in America.

    ANALYSIS: True.

  • EMILY POST

    Yes now he wanted to be in front of the Camera screaming about the border patrol... Silly Pawns always wanting the attention... Now everyone is looking at his District and they are trying to deflect Now!!!

  • SaltineCrackers

    2 babies in 2 car seats in a small car. Smh.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    Al Sharpton does not work for the Black Community.... he never did. Al Sharpton is an AGITATOR who just keeps agitating until he gets what he wants...... MONEY IN HIS POCKET!!! Follow the money.

    What are they going to do for poor blacks in Baltimore? The same thing they did the 8 years while Obama was in office.

  • samuel severino

    Why do you think Trump said what he said? He knows all. HE WANTED people to look in their direction.

    Remember when he said Puerto Rico was corrupt and they rushed to call him a racist? Why are the people in PR now protesting against and forcing all of the crooked politicians to step down?

  • EMILY POST

    Man he is asking them where is all the MONEY going???? You were sent Money???? LOL That Makes them try to deflect.... Where did the Money GO?????
    Everybody got quiet when they asked well what did you do with the MONEY?

  • SaltineCrackers

    Lol right.

  • Bushbabe

    The truth hurts.

  • Lia Washington

    He was telling the truth about Bmore?????...I live in the county and I can honestly say ...He’s not lying

    America has a Race Problem and its called the Democratic Party .... Using the BLACK Race and all of the Problems to Deflect from bad policies... they also use them to get things passed thats not even beneficial to their communities.

  • Bushbabe

    Exactly, and the weak minded Democrats are crying racism to rally their dimwitted base of fools . in the end it will be Black politicians who have been out here caping for illegal aliens that will be found with their hands in the cookie jar.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'll be voting for sure. I cant even imagine what this country would look like after EIGHT years of Donald Trump. smh

  • Bushbabe

    The fact that he didn't should give you a effing clue.

  • EMILY POST

    The deflecting... Cause they don't want to answer the questions that everyone has like WTF you been doing in office for + 20 yrs and Why are you yelling about illegal Aliens with a district looking the way yours looks!!!!!!

  • Bushbabe

    Al the Rat is there to get effing paid. He knows the corruption be cause his rat family has been in BMore hiding from the orkin man.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Thanks for the link. I didn't hear about this story and was about to Google...

  • samuel severino

    You seriously need to stop. Supreme Court just ruled in his favor last week on more additional funding for the wall. There was so much red tape on new wall construction that they focused on fixing the existing wall first. Now they are ok to work on new wall and are on track to have 500 miles completed before the election.

    Go to Build The Wall on YouTube and you see live video of the wall being built.

    The economy is not slowing down. False. Check the numbers at the end of August.

    And I am Black. Trumps approval rating with Blacks and Hispanics has been steadying rising. You really need to stop watching CNN who never shows you the blacks in his audience because they want people like you to believe he only has racists voting for him. 2020 is going to be a landslide for him. NONE OF THESE CANDIDATES currently can beat him so they just whine about him being a racist with no proof. However if you keep screaming racist it loses its effect. Duh.

    China is BEGGING, BEGGING to have the trade deal renegotiated. They are losing billions of dollars because so many companies came back to America.

    Trump is about to unveil a new health care plan that is going to blow people away. He is a businessman, not a politician. He cares about results.

  • EMILY POST

    Your idiot if you think its race baiting to ask someone who wanted the SMOKE.... He wanted to be the Pawn of the Liberals taking on Trump at the Border..... So Trump asks WTF you been doing for +20 yrs in your District. Your District is F'd Up.... but you are talking about the border detention centers and they look better than your District.... BRAVO TRUMP, BRAVO

    I saw a Trump campaign bumper sticker yesterday too. It's gonna be a long 16 months ?

    He did not!!

    I don't see how he forgot. How do you forget not one child but two?! He THOUGHT he took them to daycare? What does that even mean...I am not understanding this situation at all.

  • EMILY POST

    That has nothing to do with Race... Unless they are the racist because they don't think or fight for Baltimore to be Great or Better. They are fighting for NON CITIZENS like the President said. Congressman was asking for that Twitter Dragging.

  • samuel severino

    Absolutely. I have so many pictures on my IG of Sharpton, Jackson and Snoop partying with Trump. These sheep do not realize that he was only called a racist when he decided to run against them.

    Thank god for Q and Q+++. Just wait until he starts locking all of them up. Why do you think they have been protesting the death penalty lately. Nothing can stop what is coming. Nothing. Nothing can stop The Great Awakening. Panic time in DC right now.

  • samuel severino

    No, they just don’t want Trump exposing that they stole 2 billion dollars. Too late. Doh!

    God Bless you! LOL! That is a cute story.

  • Bushbabe

    The BBC featured the city in a scathing report on poverty in America. At least 25 percent of the people in Cummings' congressional district live in poverty.

    "If you want to know what poverty in America looks like, well this is it," the BBC reporter declared.

    One resident told the television network that "despair is a way of living" in a congressional district where second and third generations of Americans live in poverty.

    The resident said the houses are "rat infested, regardless of what you do as a person living there, roaches, mice, an epidemic of bed bugs."

    "The neighborhoods have fallen apart, not because the people are bad people," the man said.

  • samuel severino

    Not at all. By then most of the swamp will have been drained and the corrupt politicians and actors will have been arrested and tried for treason. The arrests are going to start next month.

    The people in that District don't need that report. The CBC is Plan DISRESPECTFUL.... It is Disrespectful to American Descendants of Slaves / Foundational Blacks ... The current people in Congress are just so Blatantly disrespectful they believe Blacks belong in Poverty... They will show you two entertainers and give out affirmation awards.

    I can't do it. I am HYPER vigilant and sensitive to little ones. I am always triple checking to see where they're at or what they're doing. Even if he was tired. I don't understand this is at all...how do you THINK you dropped off the babies? HOW! I'm not happy about this.

    In 2015, Sanders — then running for the Democratic Party’s nomination — blasted Baltimore. “Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation,” Sanders said, the Baltimore Sun reported. “You would think that you were in a Third World country.”

    The senator also referred to Baltimore as “a community in which half of the people don’t have jobs.”

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

    2019 Trump gets instant fake outrage for drawing attention to the same situation taking place 4 years later with no resolve. Is it racist or do we as black people need to become smarter and wiser? Black on black crime in America is at an all time high. We have become used to being treated like the scum of the earth by our own people.

And not one company have come back to America but several have closed and Left.

  • Torae

    I lived in Baltimore county now in Howard county...Maybe he was telling the truth but white folks love to use the words FILTHY, TRASH, and ANIMALS when referring to black people or Mexicans...he used the word filthy and that description was directed towards the people of Baltimore in my opinion.

    You are a hypocrite because Bernie said it in 2015 and he is a democrat and you were not outraged. it's not racists you are just delusional and have TDS.

  • SaltineCrackers

    I'm want to know why the daycare never contacted him or the wife to find out where the Children were. There a holes all in the story. I want to know how is it that he did not see the babies when he parked the car or when he got back to the car after work?

  • Phillybruh

    Speaking up for Philly, here every city and I mean every city has its rough sections.

  • The Art

    Everyone keeps shifting the responsibility. But, the reality is that this national conversation may actually present a window of opportunity to effect some real change in Baltimore. Their local politicians should not be commenting on Trump's tweets, they should be presenting the country with solutions for while asking for the federal money to enact them. This would put the onus on Trump and negate all of his criticism.

    As if rural and trailer park areas are so pristine with the raging meth and opioid abuse, robberies and general scamming of the American taxpayer by collecting disability checks for made-up illnesses. https://media1.giphy.com/media/3NsQuqc0jsyBO/giphy.gif

    Before arguing with trolls on here (unless you got time today!) Ask yourself why these people rarely comment on other posts and NEVER have anything POSITIVE to say about black folks outside of clarence thomas, candace owens and similarly damaged individuals - on a blog geared towards a BLACK AUDIENCE.

  • samuel severino

    The always fall for it every single time and he always comes out to be right?

    Remember when they called him a liar for saying:
    Puerto Rico politicians are corrupt?
    There was a crisis at the border?
    There was no collusion/no obstruction?
    That Obama spied on him?
    That Obama was born in Kenya? Obama said again 10 days ago on camera that he was born in Kenya.
    For saying there was rampant voter fraud?
    That we would make peace with N Korea? Syria? Turkey? Iran? Venezuela?THAT HE WAS GOING TO BRING BACK JOBS
    Etc etc etc

    Cummings is leading investigations into the Trump administration and holding him accountable.

  • The Art

    Al Sharpton has brought many issues to the national stage and has tried to be a voice for the voice-less when no one else was willing to get involved. As I see it, Sharpton is not the problem. The problem is the lack of other prominent people with power and reach, including many blacks, who just don't get involved.

  • The Art

    Sharpton is not an elected official, he's self appointed and can't really be held responsible for the plight of poor blacks. The issues are too deep and too numerous to get into. But, I truly believe that at the heart of all of the issues is self-esteem and self-worth and lack thereof. How can real self love and emotional well being be restored is the question we should be asking.

  • samuel severino

    So true. People don’t even get worked up anymore when you accuse them of racism because they say it so much that it is losing its sting.

  • samuel severino

    Wrong. He only cares whenever he can get a check or make himself look good.

  • The Art

    The role of congress is to provide a checks and balances system to keep the president from over stepping is authority. Cummings has a constitutional duty to call Trump out. IT IS HIS JOB! Local politicians, however, are the ones with the real power. If anyone should be called out, it should be the Mayor, city council, and other local leaders. The Federal government has very little to do with local matters. Cummings is limited with what he can do. He may be able to get federal money for local initiatives, but the local leaders are charged with LEADING.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    It’s bad, worst than people would believe, about many cuts. This is why he uses “racism” ...it makes WP think their good ole days are back or better about their sad pathetic life.

    Rural poverty is way different than urban poverty!

    There’re food banks, churches giving out food, more shelters, county clinics, hospitals, overall better Human Resources, more fast food jobs, customers to drive with Uber or Lyft, even with cuts, we’re better off that a large portion of his base!

    With over 300 million white people, 40 million blacks, we know how to survive, regardless of who’s in office!

  • The Art

    If he gets paid for his services, that's his business. Nobody can work for free. But, there's no denying the FACT that Sharpton has been an advocate for many issues and civil rights violations that would have otherwise gone unnoticed.

  • samuel severino

    What??? What investigations is Cummings leading into Trump? Russian collusion? Already proven to be a hoax.

    It is the other way around. Cummings was already in trouble for shady dealings involving his wife. Wait till the people demand to know what happened to the 2 billion dollars to improve Baltimore and he has to account for it. I would be screaming too against Trump to cover my own ass.

    So, we must pull ourselves out of the mire, “Each one, reach one,” Septima Clark!

    It’s a conflict of interest for any group of elected officials or WP to improve the quality of poor black people lives!

Al Sharpton's only allegiance is to money I guarantee you he's working with Trump to put on this show. Wherever there's racial tension and a lot of cameras the good Reverend shows up in his sunday's best and stirs the pot until he has formed a Lynch mob to unleash on whoever is at the receiving end and once he is paid off he calls off the dogs and helps them give a public apology. Not to say that good hasn't come from his methods only that his objective is self-serving and if good comes about along the way then that's fine too.

    The descendants of slaves in America were never suppose to live in opulence.

    Trump isn't wrong but we have to understand the history of how Black communities came to be "infested" which as no accident. After the 1968 riots in America, government and businesses decided to shun inner cities in terms of economic development.

    Unlike help that the US Government gave poor working-class Whites, that was never the case for Black people.

    In the 1860s/1870s for example, the US Government gave away millions of acres of land out West via "Homestead Acts" (that is to say stolen land) to penniless European immigrants and they gave them an economic floor to start their farm businesses. THE US GOVERNMENT NEVER DID ANYTHING REMOTELY LIKE THAT FOR BLACK PEOPLE.

    So, in a span of about 80 years (the 1860s to the 1940s) the US Government put wealth at the fingertips of poor European IMMIGRANTS with Homestead Acts then later on FDR's New Deal (1930s) and the G.I. Bill (the 1940s) and all of it was off-limits to Black people.

    The last two is what helped create what we refer to today as the Middle Class AND THAT'S NOT UP FOR DISCUSSION. ALL DONE FOR WHITE PEOPLE BY THE US GOVERNMENT.

    One could argue that, without the New Deal and the G.I. Bill, America never has a Middle Class and Americans do not attend college BUT because of the G.I. Bill, poor working-class Europeans HAD THE CHANCE to attend college.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose
