As you know, President Trump’s tweets today about Rep. Elijah Cummings and areas of his West Baltimore district sparked a lot of controversy and criticism (some of which backfired badly). In the wake of that, another tweet is making the rounds, and it’s from Bernie Sanders a couple of years ago:
Residents of Baltimore’s poorest boroughs have lifespans shorter than people living under dictatorship in North Korea. That is a disgrace.

At least Bernie agrees with Trump about something.
Well this didn't age well….and what Party is in control of this City? Hmmmm? 🤔 https://t.co/u6OyxQ4tcw

But Bernie! You called Baltimore a "Third World Country"

So after two years of this tweet… Is Baltimore a better place or worse?
Did anyone call you a racist two years ago for tweeting this…

That’s sure not the takeaway Sanders was hoping for back when his account tweeted that out.
