“When the history books are written about this tumultuous era, I want them to show that I was among those in the House of Representatives who stood up to lawlessness and tyranny,” he said.

The Congressman’s Facebook page has been a bulletin board of anti-Trump and anti-Republican messages and stories.  Cummings also opposed ICE’s crackdown on illegal immigration in the United States and supported increased gun control.
