Trump War Room posted this video on Twitter, with the caption "Rep. Elijah Cummings in 1999: "This morning I left my community of Baltimore, a DRUG INFESTED area" where people are "walking around like zombies." Cummings and Trump are in a battle over Trump's comments. Trump said Rep. Cummings' district was infested with rats. Trump wasn't wrong. Cummings' district is filthy and rodent infested as per reports by people who live there and a video by Kim Klacik who pointed out some very broken down homes with lots of trash in the yards.
PBS also aired 'Rat Film' in 2008, a documentary about Baltimore's rat problem.
