President Donald Trump on Friday continued his week-long Twitter barrage against Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), this time mocking the fact that Cummings was recently the victim of a home invasion.

Many considered the tweet a low blow, made worse because it came from the president of the United States.
The outcry was so strong that even Trump’s former U.N. Secretary Nikki Haley weighed in.
This is so unnecessary. 🙄

Wow. Eye roll emoji. Sent directly to the president. Over Twitter. For the world to see.
Naturally, people on Twitter were so proud of her for standing up to her former boss in such a brave way.
