President Trump Issues Heartfelt Statement Following Death Of Rep. Cummings

This morning it was announced that Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings had passed on at 68, and in somewhat of a surprise move, the president issued a statement about the man working to impeach him.

While folks would like to think that president Trump is some heartless monster, the fact is the man is human. That’s probably why he issued what appear to be some very sincere remarks about the Democrat from Baltimore.

“My warmest condolences to the family and many friends of Congressman Elijah Cummings. I got to see first hand the strength, passion and wisdom of this highly respected political leader. His work and voice on so many fronts will be very hard, if not impossible, to replace!”

Day after day we are reminded that the two major political parties in the U.S. despise each other, but the passing of Cummings seems to put a pause on the insults. Maybe for a day politicians in D.C. can stop bickering, and reflect on a member that (although we disagree on many policies) influenced American politics in a major way.
