"The president is as he usually is or often is, disgusting and racist. He makes these charges with no base at all,” Nadler said on ABC’s “This Week” in reference to the tweets, which called Cummings’ West Baltimore district “rat and rodent-infested” and implied money intended for the district was being stolen.

The attacks, Nadler claimed, “are designed to distract attention from allegations about his conduct that came from the committee in the Mueller hearings this week.”

“He’s just trying to change the subject, which is what he usually does,” Nadler added.
