Chuck Schumer: ‘Donald Trump Should Not Hold Office One Day Longer’
- Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Tuesday held a press conference where he insisted that President “Donald Trump should not hold office one day longer ”.
- According to Schumer, President Trump’s recent comments show “how despicable a president he is.”
- “[Trump] blamed the violence that he helped cause on others,” Schumer claimed. “He blamed the divisiveness that he regularly causes on others. He blamed so much on others.”
- Schumer continued and claimed when Trump chooses to “blame others for what he caused is a pathological technique used by the worst of dictators. Trump causes the anger, he causes the divisiveness, he foments the violence, and blames others for it. That is despicable.”
- “The technique Trump is using is used by the worst dictators the globe has ever seen,” Schumer said. “Donald Trump should not hold office one day longer.”
- What we saw in his statements is proof positive of that,” Schumer added.
- “As I’ve said, if he won’t resign and Vice President Pence and the cabinet won’t invoke the 25th Amendment, he will be impeached by the House, and as the law requires, tried by the Senate.”
- Schumer also said he has asked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to call the Senate back to “vote [to] convict Donald Trump and get him out of office now before any other damage is done.”
