On Tuesday, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) officially became the Senate Minority Leader. During his first floor speech, Schumer attacked President-elect Donald Trump’s efforts to have a better relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“[Trump] says he wants to build a strong America and earn respect around the world but seems to be marching in lockstep with a bullying, dissembling autocrat who has caused a great deal of trouble around the globe and here in America, Vladimir Putin,” Schumer told the Senate.
In 2003, Schumer welcomed Putin to New York City with open arms and Krispy Kreme doughnuts.
