Donald Trump Attacks Al Sharpton, Says He 'Hates Whites' After Reverend Tweets He's 'Headed To Baltimore'

President Donald Trump struck out at the Rev. Al Sharpton early Monday morning, accusing the minister and civil rights activist of hating white people after he tweeted out plans to head to Baltimore—the Maryland city Trump recently branded a "disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess."

"I have known Al for 25 years. Went to fights with him & Don King, always got along well. He 'loved Trump!'" the president began in a tweet. "He would ask me for favors often."

"Al is a con man, a troublemaker, always looking for a score," Trump then wrote. "Just doing his thing. Must have intimidated Comcast/NBC. Hates Whites & Cops!"

"Al Sharpton would always ask me to go to his events," he added in a later tweet. "He would say, 'it's a personal favor to me.' Seldom, but sometimes, I would go. It was fine. He came to my office in T.T. during the presidential campaign to apologize for the way he was talking about me. Just a conman at work!"

The U.S. leader's fury appeared to be driven by a tweet from Sharpton sharing his plans to head to Baltimore, which the president recently railed against in a separate attack on Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings, chairman of the House Oversight Committee.

In his attack on Cummings, which was the latest in a string of verbal assaults from the president against a minority member of Congress, Trump suggested that conditions in Cummings' district were "FAR WORSE and more dangerous" than those at the U.S.-Mexico border.

"If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place," the president said, asserting that Cummings' district "is considered the Worst in the USA" and that "no human being would want to live there."

In another tweet Monday morning, the president renewed his attacks on both Cummings and Sharpton, asserting that "Baltimore, under the leadership of Elijah Cummings, has the worst Crime Statistics in the Nation."

"25 years of all talk, no action! So tired of listening to the same old Bull... Next Reverend Al will show up to complain & protest. Nothing will get done for the people in need. Sad!" he said.

While Baltimore does have a high crime rating, an April analysis of 2017 data from Statista found Baltimore to be in third place, behind Detroit and St. Louis in a list of the top 10 cities with the largest number of violent crimes per 100,000 residents.

According to the FBI's data, Baltimore saw 2,027 violent crimes per 100,000 residents reported, compared with Detroit's 2,057 and St. Louis's 2,082.

Within minutes of Trump tweeting out his attack on Sharpton, the president was met with accusations of racism once again.

"Damn you're racist, Donald," Tony Posnanski wrote in response to the U.S. leader's tweet. "You can't even f***ing hide it."

"This was another really racist tweet," Bob Brigham, a senior editor at media company Raw Story, pointed out.

"Stop attacking black people & do your job," another social media user weighed in.

"Al has morale, Donald," said another, Paul van der Meer wrote. "Unlike you."

The president's attacks on both Cummings and Sharpton come after the U.S. leader's racist assault on four Congresswomen, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley, all of whom are women of color.

Trump has been widely condemned for racism in the weeks since he told the four lawmakers to "go back" to the "crime-infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done."
