The United States Presidency has gone to an all time low, thanks to one Donald Trump!!!!

In a back and forth confrontation with Maryland Democrat “Elijah Cummings,” the National Cathedral” has gotten involved and spoken out!

The National Cathedral posted a letter online talking about the  “violent dehumanizing words” against the city of Baltimore and stated that the faith leaders’ “the time for silence” is “over.”

The letter comes days after Trump launched attacks on Twitter at Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the city of Baltimore (parts of which lie in Cummings’ district) and Rev. Al Sharpton.

Trump called Rep. Elijah Cummings a racist after the president called the congressman’s majority-black district in the Baltimore area a “rodent-infested mess” where “no human being would want to live.”

On Monday, Trump turned his attacks on Rev. Al Sharpton on Twitter calling him a “con man, a troublemaker” who “Hates Whites & Cops!”

NATIONAL CATHEDRAL:  “When such violent dehumanizing words come from the President of the United States, they are a clarion call, and give cover, to white supremacists who consider people of color a subhuman ‘infestation’ in America,” the letter states. “They serve as a call to action from those people to keep America great by ridding it of such infestation. Violent words lead to violent actions.”

The letter is signed by Right Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington; Very Rev. Randolph Marshall Hollerith, Dean of Washington National Cathedral; and Rev. Canon Kelly Brown Douglas, Canon Theologian of Washington National Cathedral.
