Chuck Schumer Torches Donald Trump: One Of 'The Worst Few Days' Of Foreign Policy

"If anyone thinks this doesn’t hurt America in the short term, in the long run, they are sadly mistaken," the Senate Minority Leader told CNN's Anderson Cooper.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday chastised President Donald Trump for conducting “one of the worst few days in American foreign policy in American diplomatic history in a long time.”

Trump joked about election interference and getting “rid” of journalists with Russian President Vladimir Putin at last week’s G-20 summit in Osaka, Japan, before his impromptu meet-and-greet in North Korea with the pariah state’s dictator Kim Jong Un.

Schumer told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that Trump’s foreign policy “is erratic. It’s done for the moment so he can get his little ego hit and it hurts us, hurts us in the long run.”

“It’s reality show foreign policy. He wants that photo op. He wants that little hit,” Schumer added. “He has no strategic long-range sense where to go, what to do. If anyone thinks this doesn’t hurt America in the short term, in the long run, they are sadly mistaken.”
