Donald ’s feud with Elijah Cummings entered its fifth day Wednesday when the president tweeted a video of the Congressman referring to Baltimore as a ‘drug infested area’ to discredit claims that his own comments about the city were racist.

The clip, which appears to be from a congressional hearing in 1999, documents Cummings lamenting the Maryland city’s overwhelming drug problems.

The House Oversight Committee Chairman goes on to claim that the city's streets are filled with addicted children who resemble ‘zombies’.

‘I left my community of Baltimore, a drug-infested area where a lot of the drugs we’re talking about today have already taken the lives of so many children,’ Cummings can be heard saying in the clip.

‘The same children I watched 14 or 15 years ago as they grew up are now walking around like Zombies. This is only 40 miles away from [Washington DC].’

In relation to Cumming’s utterance, tweeted that the footage proves to the ‘radical left dems’ that his indictments of Baltimore as a ‘drug-infested area’ this week weren’t racist as many - including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi - had claimed

The latest twice in the pair’s public feud came less than a day after tripled down on his bashing of Baltimore, blasting the city for being ‘worse than Honduras’ for violent crime and renewed his criticism of black Congressman Elijah E. Cummings.

The remarks came in an explosive interview with the Washington Post just hours after he dismissed accusations that his attacks on Cummings were racially motivated, insisting 'Everybody is called a racist now.'

In his latest onslaught, called Baltimore ‘about the worst case’ of inner-city violence across the country and beyond.

‘If you look at it statistically, it’s like, the number of shootings, the number of crimes, the number of everything,’ said. ‘This morning I heard a statistic, Baltimore is worse than Honduras, okay?’
