Chuck Schumer Mocks Trump In Tweet, Backfires Big Time

Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer looked to swipe President Trump over his latest decision to declare the state of Florida his new home—which has obvious political implications.

Schumer, borrowing a quote from the iconic American singer Frank Sinatra, tweeted: “New York, New York. If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere… Trump can’t.”

In a series of tweets, President Trump criticized the state of New York for the failure of its Democratic leadership. Trump said businesses were leaving the state, residents were being forced to pay more in taxes, and said the state was “getting dirty and unsafe again.”

“I love New York, but New York can never be great again under the current leadership of Governor Andrew Cuomo (the brother of Fredo), or Mayor Bill DeBlasio. Cuomo has weaponized the prosecutors to do his dirty work (and to keep him out of jams), a reason some don’t want to be in New York, and another reason they are leaving,” Trump tweeted.

“Taxes and energy costs are way too high, Upstate is being allowed to die as other nearby states frack & drill for Gold (oil) while reducing taxes & creating jobs by the thousands,” the president added. “NYC is getting dirty & unsafe again, as our great police are being disrespected, even with water dumped on them, because a Mayor and Governor just don’t ‘have their backs.’”

“New York’s Finest must be cherished, respected and loved. Too many people are leaving our special New York,” he continued in the tweets. “Great leaders would work with a President and Federal Government that wants our wonderful City and State to flourish and thrive.

“I Love New York!” Trump concluded.
