Activist Al Sharpton said this week that President Trump is a "symbol of northern bigotry," comparing the conditions in New York City in the 1980s to the South in the 1960s.

Sharpton said Trump "never left the Queens way," referring to the president's home borough, in that he said Trump and his father were sued for racial discrimination over who they rented apartments to.

Current Queens Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.) called Trump a "bait-and-switch con man" and Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) warned the president could become a "tyrant."

Holmes said such comments from Democrats in "safe districts" may unintentionally hurt Democrats running in moderate areas or in states where Trump won in 2016.
