Chuck Schumer ERUPTS, Goes On VIOLENT Trump Attack

He better be ready for what comes next.

According to The Daily Wire, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer attacked President Donald Trump stating he is “appalled” about what Trump said about him.

Schumer stated, “And so about two weeks ago, I called the president and said, “Why don’t you invoke thethe Defense Production Act? That’s an act on the books from the Truman administration and it says that the military can commandeer both manufacturing and distribution when there’s a national emergency or a war. The president said he’d do it and then three hours later he said no.”

Schumer continued, “ And now, he hasn’t done it, and we sort of have this patchwork, where governors and mayors, my governor, my mayor, they’re doing good jobs, but they’re going around looking for ventilators, looking for masks. It’s uncoordinated and it’s a patchwork.”

Then Schumer referenced the letter he had written to Trump earlier.

“So this morning I sent the president a letter and said, ‘Why don’t you invoke the Defense Production Act and put in place a military person? Somebody who knows command and control, someone who knows logistics, someone who knows quarter-mastering, to not only commandeer factories and supply chains to make the stuff that we need, desperately need, but also to distribute it in the places that are most needed so not the 50 governors will be hunting and pecking.'”

“And then I spoke to the president late this afternoon and explained it and the result is this letter. And so I’m just appalled. I say to the president, ‘Just stop the pettiness. People are dying.’ And so, President Trump, we need leadership, we need to get the job done. Stop the pettiness. Let’s get it done. Let’s roll up our sleeves. I sent the letter with the best of intentions, trying to improve a very bad situation.” You can read the full article here.
