President Donald Trump aims at Reverend Al Sharpton following his controversial attacks on Rep. Elijah Cummings. Trump refers to Sharpton as someone who “hates whites and cops.”

The president tweets:

“I have known Al for 25 years. Went to fights with him & Don King, always got along well. He ‘loved Trump! He would ask me for favors often. Al is a con man, a troublemaker, always looking for a score. Just doing his thing. Must have intimidated Comcast/NBC. Hates Whites & Cops!”

Sharpton responded to his tweet and says:

“Trump says I’m a troublemaker & con man. I do make trouble for bigots. If he really thought I was a con man he would want me in his cabinet.”

Over the weekend, called Cummings’ district, Maryland’s 7th Congressional District, “a disgusting, rat, and rodent-infested mess” adding “no human being would want to live there.’
