Chuck Schumer Defends Kirsten Gillibrand, Rips Trump for ‘Nasty’ Tweet

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer defended fellow New York Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand over President Trump’s “nasty” tweet about her this morning (which also invoked Schumer):

Gillibrand, who made waves yesterday after saying the President should resign over the allegations against him, fired back:

A number of Democrats have come to Gillibrand’s defense, and this afternoon Schumer said Trump’s tweet was “nasty.”

He called it “unbecoming of a President” and reiterated, “The President needs to cut it out with the tweeting! He ought to stop tweeting and start leading.”
