Demonstrators protest against U.S. President Trump in Baltimore, Maryland
An anti-Trump demonstrator and a Trump supporter exchange words prior to Trump's speech to Republican members of Congress. The chilly reception came after Trump lashed out on Twitter at Elijah Cummings, a prominent African-American congressman from Baltimore, calling him a "brutal bully" who should concentrate on cleaning up his "disgusting, rat and rodent infested" district rather than criticizing the work of U.S. immigration officers on the Mexican border. Cummings, who chairs the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, has led investigations into Trump and his administration, called him a racist and lashed out at the president's hard-line immigration policies. The powerful congressman responded to Trump's tweets by inviting him to tour the city and observe hardworking residents.
