BALTIMORE - President Trump continues to face accusations of racism for his tweets referring to Rep. Elijah Cummings' majority-black Baltimore district as a "disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess" where "no human being would want to live."
FOX 5's Lindsay Watts has learned that Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, owns thousands of apartments in the Baltimore region. Watts says that two years ago Baltimore County put out a list of properties in Maryland owned by Kushner saying it had more than 200 code violations.
The County fined the company for refusing to fix some of the violations. Coincidentally, rodents were an issue at some apartments according to an investigation by the New York Times and Pro Publica.
FOX 5 reached out to Kushner Companies to ask do they agree with the President's statements about Baltimore.
The response reads:
"Kushner Companies is proud to own thousands of apartments in the Baltimore area. Substantial amounts are constantly reinvested in the properties to maintain a high quality residential experience for our tenants."
