President Trump lashed out at Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Thursday, accusing him of “incorrect sound bites” on the administration’s coronavirus relief efforts in the latest war of words between the two New Yorkers.
Trump, in a two-page letter released by the White House, called the Democratic leader a “bad” senator and argued that he would lose a primary against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).
The article goes on to state the following:
“Thank you for your Democrat public relations letter and incorrect sound bites, which are wrong in every way,” Trump wrote in the opening of the letter, before going on to discuss the administration’s efforts on the coronavirus.
Schumer has repeatedly demanded that the president appoint a “czar” to distribute supplies. He tweeted Wednesday night, “President Trump: You need to use the Defense Production Act to produce more medical supplies and equipment NOW. I called for this 2 weeks ago! And you need to appoint a czar like a military commander to lead the effort to make and get the supplies where they’re needed ASAP.”
Below is a screenshot of the president’s scathing letter to the Senate Minority Leader:

The president’s letter reads as follows:
Dear Senator Schumer:
Thank you for your Democrat public relations letter and incorrect sound bites, which are wrong in every way.
- As you are aware, Vice President Pence is in charge of the Task Force. By almost all accounts, he has done a spectacular job.
- The Defense Production Act (DPA) has been consistently used by my team and me for the purchase of billions of dollars’ worth of equipment, medical supplies, ventilators, and other related items. It has been powerful leverage, so powerful that companies generally do whatever we are asking, without even a formal notice. They know something is coming, and that’s all they need to know.
- A “senior military officer” is in charge of purchasing, distributing, etc. His name is Rear Admiral John Polowezyk. He is working 24 hours a day, and is highly respected by everyone. If you remember, my team gave you this information, but for public relations purposes, you choose to ignore it.
- We have given New York many things, including hospitals, medical centers, medical supplies, record numbers of ventilators, and more. You should have had New York much better prepared than you did, and as Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx said yesterday, New York was very late in its fight against the virus. As you are aware, the Federal Government is merely a back-up for state governments. Unfortunately, your state needed far more of a back-up than most others.
If you spent less time on your ridiculous impeachment hoax, which went haplessly on forever and ended up going nowhere (except increasing my poll numbers) and instead focused on helping the people of New York, then New York would not have been so completely unprepared for the ‘invisible enemy.’ No wonder AOC and others are thinking about running against you in the primary. If they did, they would likely win.
Fortunately, we have been working with your state and city governments, Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill DeBlasio, to get the job done. You have been missing in action, except when it comes to the “press.” While you have stated that you don’t like Andrew Cuomo, you ought to start working alongside him for the good of all New Yorkers.
I’ve known you for many years, but I never knew how bad a Senator you are for the state of New York, until I became President.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call. Or, in the alternative, call Rear Admiral Polowezyk.
Trump’s letter was in response to Sen. Schumer’s letter sent earlier on Thursday:

You need to designate a senior military officer as “czar” with broad and government-wide authority to lead both production and distribution of desperately needed medical equipment NOW. pic.twitter.com/h92q37OZrM

President Trump is a SAVAGE
He wrote this letter to @SenSchumer and called him out on all of the lies he has told and finished it off with:
“No wonder AOC and others are thinking about running against you in the primary. If they did, they would likely win.”

CNN’s Jim Acosta also shared the letter, tweeting, “Trump trashes Schumer in letter to the Senate Minority Leader, released by WH: “I never knew how bad a Senator you are for the state of New York.””
