Sen. Schumer Responds To Trump: 'Where Is Your Leadership?'

The New York Senator fired back at Trump's vicious smear over the NYC terrorist attack.
Views:

After Trump blamed Sen. Chuck Schumer for yesterday's NYC terrorist attack, on Twitter of course. Guess they gave him his phone back, again, at the White House Day Care.

And as usual, the so-called Commander in Chief is using Fox and Friends as primary source material.

Schumer took to the Senate floor and pounded Orange Julius for having no leadership qualities whatsoever.

Sen. Schumer said, "President Bush, in a moment of national tragedy, understood the meaning of his high office and sought to bring our country together. President Trump, where is your leadership?"

He continued, "The contrast between President Bush's actions after 9/11 and President Trump's actions this morning could not be starker. Again, Mr. President, President Trump, where is your leadership?"

"I would say in closing, I have always believed that immigration is good for America. I believe it today. President Trump, instead of politicizing and dividing America, which he always seems to do at times of national tragedy, should be bringing us together and focusing on the real solution, anti-terrorism funding which he proposed to cut in his most recent budget."

Only a chicken hawk coward would attack a political rival directly after a terrorist attack by using smears and lies to do so.

The one thing Trump does with confidence as he holds the highest office in the world is to attack and smear others.
