President Trump’s feud with Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), which began when the President claimed the veteran politician had neglected his district, only continues to intensify as the week progresses

In a surprise visit, Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson toured a Baltimore HUD facility on Wednesday.

Rep. Cummings, who was invited to the tour, reportedly declined to attend. 

According to the Daily Caller,

HUD invited Cummings to tour the facility with Carson on Tuesday, however Cummings rejected the invitation, the Daily Caller has learned.

When asked about Cummings’ absence at a press conference, Carson said that he did not know why Cummings did not attend the tour but guessed there may have been a scheduling issue.

While Trump continues on the warpath, more attention has been paid not just to the President’s continued feud with the House Oversight Committee Chairman, but to the sorry state of Baltimore.
