The Senate’s Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer, ramped up to Defcon 1 after President Trump met with Vladimir Putin.
“I’m from Brooklyn,” the New York Democart said on the Senate floor on Tuesday. “We learned one thing there, if we learned anything: when there’s a bully around, as Putin is, you show strength. But President Trump showed abject weakness. You know what that means? The bully will continue to take advantage of him. If President Trump was such an easy mark in Helsinki, President Putin will realize he’s an easy mark elsewhere.”
Yes, Schumer — had he been the one meeting with the Russian president and former KGB agent — would have been tougher.

The Deep State claims Putin has bought Trump and I bet it cost a bundle. However, it appears that he picked up Chuck Schumer for a cup of coffee and a doughnut. 😂

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is demanding Republicans convene a public hearing on any deal made between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin at their recent summit in Helsinki.
“Our Republican colleagues need to join us in demanding testimony from the president’s national security team that was in Helsinki and we need to do that immediately … to assess what President Trump might have committed to President Putin in secret,” Schumer said Tuesday on the Senate floor.
“You can’t assume anything — but that as weak as he was in public before President Putin, he was even worse in private,” Schumer added of Trump. “Why else did he not want anyone else in the room?”
A spokesman for Schumer later said the senator wants Republicans to convene a public hearing and not a closed-door briefing, which typically involves all senators. – READ MORE[give_form id=”79809″] [contentcards url=”https://www.dailywire.com/news/33227/photo-chuck-schumer-eating-doughnuts-vladimir-joseph-curl” target=”_blank”]
