Schumer Responds to Trump: ‘I Guess It’s Not Too Soon to Politicize a Tragedy’

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has a response after President Trump smacked him on Twitter today and connected him to the Tuesday nigh terror attack in New York City.

Trump seems to be getting his briefing from Fox & Friends today, seeing as he cited the show when blamed Schumer for allowing the suspect in last night’s attack to enter the country years ago. The president specifically pointed to the Diversity Visa Program, which originated from the Immigration Act Schumer advocated for during the 90s.

As such, Schumer’s office has released a statement, saying that the president should focus on anti-terrorism funding rather than sowing division and using tragedies for political gain:
