This week, the city of Baltimore came under a very public fire when President Trump dubbed it a "disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess" in one of his infamous Twitter rants.
Trump's vicious Twitter attack was directed at Maryland Rep, Elijah Cummings, after he criticized conditions at U.S. Customs and Border Control facilities on the Mexican border. Since his online outburst, however, the President has been slammed for his "outrageous" comments towards Cummings by other democrats.
And now, John Legend has had his say. The musician has always been vocal about his thoughts on the President, and he certainly hasn't held back this time, with him even going as far to say that Trump needs to impeached from Office immediately.
Keep scrolling to see Legend's explosive rant, in which he condemns the President and defends the people of Baltimore.
Let's start from the beginning.

Elijah Cummings is the President's latest target.

The Congressman even went as far as to compare the treatment on the border as “government-sponsored child abuse" in a news conference last Thursday.
And this isn't the first time Cummings has come after the President...

"I’m begging the American people to pay attention to what is going on," Cummings had boldly stated while standing alongside other House Democratic leaders. "Because if you want to have a democracy intact for your children and your children’s children and generations yet unborn, we have got to guard against this moment."
Trump hastily took to Twitter to respond.Because of course he did. In response to Cummings' claims about the U.S border with Mexico, Trump unleashed a savage barrage against the city of Baltimore, claiming that the city was worse living conditions than the detention centers for immigrants attempting to cross the border.
The President didn't hold back.Continuing his rant in a Twitter thread, Trump labeled Cummings' district as a "disgusting, rat and rodent-infested" mess.
Trump continued to slam the state of his district.He hatefully Tweeted that "no human being would want to live there" and even suggested that Cummings has stolen money, urging for the "corrupt mess to be investigated immediately."
His barrage sounded awfully familiar...

And people were quick to label the President's rant as racist.
via: Getty ImagesIn one of his tweets back in 2017, he had told the progressive lawmakers — American citizens, three natively born and one a refugee — to “go back" to the “crime infested" countries they’d come from. Many critics pointed to the coded, somewhat recycled language Trump had used against the black congressman, prompting the president to defend himself.
Trump took to Twitter (obviously) to defend his words.The President claimed that there was nothing racist about what he had said about Cummings, and that the Democrats always "play the race card when they are unable to win with facts".
Though several people still called the President out.

He was asked on his opinions on Baltimore.
via: TMZWhen asked what can be done to help improve Baltimore, the singer acknowledged the city’s issues but suggested making positive change instead of lashing out on Twitter as the president had done.
He condemned Trump's attack on the city.

And one guy has taken it to a whole new level... by insisting that Christians and politicians will all be murdered if Trump isn't re-elected in 2020. Yikes.
