Q    But, Mr. President, the question I wanted to ask was: But what’s the political strategy here?  Because this seems to be causing — these attacks seem to be causing a lot of division in the country.
THE PRESIDENT:  What are you talking about by “political strategy”?  Are you talking with —

Q    The political strategy of —

THE PRESIDENT:  — respect to Elijah Cummings?

Q    No, I’m talking about your attacks against Elijah Cummings and the tone of the attack.
THE PRESIDENT:  There’s no strategy.  I have no strategy.  There’s zero strategy.  All it is, is I’m pointing out facts.  The most unsafe city in the country — in our country — is Baltimore.  It’s received as much money — it receives top of the line — billions of dollars.
Somebody said $15 billion over a short period of time.  All of this money goes there.  And take a look at it.  I don’t have to describe it.  Take a look at it.

So, there’s no strategy.  It’s very simple.  And Elijah Cummings is in charge of it and he ought to take his Oversight Committee, and he ought to park them in Baltimore and find out what happened to the $15 billion and a lot of other money.
. . .

Q    Mr. President, you know that Elijah Cummings is not the mayor of Baltimore, so why are you so angry at him about the city?  Is it because —

THE PRESIDENT:  Elijah Cummings — yeah.

Q    — he’s subpoenaing your officials?
THE PRESIDENT:  I’m not angry.  I’m not angry.  I’m just telling you the facts.

Q    You sound angry.

THE PRESIDENT:  I’m not angry at anybody.  I’m just saying, Elijah Cummings has been there for 26 years.  He’s really, by far, the highest-ranking politician.
He’s seen these mayors get thrown out, thrown out, thrown out.  They’re all friends of his.  The corruption and the graft in Baltimore is probably the greatest in our country, or one of them.

Now, he’s in charge of an Oversight Committee.  All I’m saying is take your Oversight Committee and go to Baltimore.  You’ll learn a lot.
