CNN political commentator and Democratic strategist David Axelrod slammed President Trump‘s attack on Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), arguing the president’s “stream of ugly, divisive bombast” could threaten his reelection chances.
“If @realDonaldTrump loses in 2020, this will be why,” Axelrod wrote Saturday. “Every, single day, he subjects the country he was elected to lead to a stream of ugly, divisive bombast. It’s exhausting. It’s destructive. It’s unworthy of a POTUS.”
And the thing about it is this: @realDonaldTrump may believe in multiplication by division but it doesn’t add up for the American people. The rancor and chaos his daily dose of nastiness creates is a barrier to actually getting things done on tangible concerns.

Axelrod added that the “rancor and chaos his daily dose of nastiness creates is a barrier to actually getting things done.”
Axelrod was responding to a tweet by Trump on Saturday in which the president called Cummings’s district a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.”
Trump sought to contrast the district, which includes downtown Baltimore, with conditions at the southern border, calling it “FAR WORSE and more dangerous.”
