Donald Trump says robbery at politician’s home is ‘too bad’

President Donald Trump has tweeted about a reported robbery at the Baltimore home of Representative Elijah Cummings.

Mr Trump had previously denigrated Mr Cummings this week, calling his majority-black district a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.”

On Friday, Mr Trump tweeted: “Really bad news! The Baltimore house of Elijah Cummings was robbed. Too bad!”

Police said they received a report of a burglary on Saturday at a West Baltimore home, but it was unknown whether property was taken.

The Baltimore Sun, citing state property records, reported the break-in happened at Mr Cummings’ home.

Mr Cummings’ House oversight committee has been investigating Trump family members serving in the White House.

The break-in came hours before Mr Trump launched a Twitter tirade against Mr Cummings.

Andy Eichar, Mr Cummings’ press secretary, said Mr Cummings was unavailable for comment.
