Trump pounded for unleashing ‘language used in Nazi Germany’ in his racist attack on Elijah Cummings

Published

on

Following President Donald Trump’s racist Twitter outburst attacking the Baltimore-based district of Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) as “a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess” where “no human being wants to live,” former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance sharply condemned his remarks.

Trump, Vance pointed out, is using the same language the Nazis used to dehumanize their victims in the Third Reich:

Trump, who was angered by Cummings’ criticism of his border security policy, has been doubling down on racial grievance politics, possibly as a 2020 election ploy to excite his base. His latest outburst follows his demand that four Democratic congresswomen of color should “go back” where they came from.

Democrats have a powerful case against Trump — but they keep making a key mistake

Published

on

On the floor of the Senate, House impeachment managers have delivered a thorough, factual and compelling case for removing President Donald Trump from office. He abused his power by using his office to induce Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky into launching investigations of his political enemies, and then he obstructed Congress in its efforts to uncover the details of this scheme.
