Schumer: Trump Foreign Policy is Becoming a 'Joke'

Schumer: Trump Foreign Policy is Becoming a 'Joke'

By    |   Friday, 08 June 2018 02:09 PM

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., citing President Donald Trump’s call to reinstate Russia into the Group of Seven nations, said American foreign policy is becoming a "joke," The Hill is reporting.

"President Trump is turning our foreign policy into an international joke, doing lasting damage to our country, without any rhyme or reason," Schumer said.

He elaborated on his comments in a tweet on Friday:

“Readmitting Russia to the G-7 would reward Vladimir Putin for actions the U.S. and its allies have condemned, and would clearly be contrary to America’s interests. The president’s foreign policy decision making seems to become more erratic every day.”

His remarks followed Trump’s questioning why the nations are meeting without Russia.

"Why are we having a meeting without Russia in the meeting? Trump said. "They should let Russia come back in because we should have Russia at the negotiating table."

The president’s comments also drew criticism from Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., who said: “This is weak. (Russian President Vladimir) Putin is not our friend and he is not the president’s buddy."
