Breaking Report: Elijah Cummings' Baltimore Home Burglarized, Looks Like Trump Was Right

Combined Shape

The Baltimore home of Democratic Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings was broken into last week, according to a report.

“Breaking: Congressman Elijah Cummings home broken into. Baltimore police investigating,” WJZ-TV’s Mike Hellgren tweeted.

He attached a statement from police.

“The Baltimore Police Department is investigating a report of a burglary that occurred July 27, 2019 at approximately 3:40 am, at a home in the 2000 block of Madison Avenue,” the statement read.

“At this time, it is unknown if any property was taken from the location,” the statement added.

Cummings, whose district encompasses parts of Baltimore, has been in the news as he feuds with President Donald Trump.

In a Saturday tweet, Trump took aim at Cummings’ district, calling it a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.”

The alleged burglary at Cummings home came the same day as Trump’s tweets, as Hellgren pointed out.

But it’s worth noting that Trump’s tweet came after police say the alleged break-in happened.

Do you think this reported burglary proves Trump was right about Baltimore?

The president, of course, was criticized to no end by Democrats and the establishment media for what he said about Baltimore.

If anything, this incident proves he was right.

Baltimore does have a crime problem, despite the fact that liberals would like to ignore the city’s issues so they can keep bashing the president.

But this latest report will be difficult for them to ignore.
