President Trump has responded to the passing of political foe Elijah Cummings by offering his condolences to Cummings' friends and family.

According to The Hill:

President Trump on Thursday mourned the death of Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), tweeting that the late congressman and fierce critic of the administration would be "hard, if not impossible, to replace."


Cummings died early Thursday morning "due to complications concerning longstanding health challenges,” his office said. He was 68.

As chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, Cummings was one of the president's most outspoken, powerful and charismatic critics. He held a hearing on the administration's treatment of migrants at the border and memorably chaired a hearing with the president's former personal attorney Michael Cohen.

Cummings was one of the three committee chairmen leading an impeachment inquiry to Trump, though he had been largely absent from the public eye in recent weeks as he battled health problems.

This is just another reminder that not everything in life is political.
