Trump: Democrats 'Worse Than China, Russia,' They 'Don't Love America'
President calls out Schumer and Pelosi
President Donald Trump has blasted Democrats, saying they are harder to work with than China or Russia, adding "they don’t love America."
The president made the remarks during his visit to a naval shipyard in Wisconsin.
Trump was responding to Fox News host Sean Hannity’s questions on foreign policy.
The president said that the assumption was that Russia, North Korea, or China where the hardest to work with, but said in truth, the Democrats are worse.
“We have [Chuck] Schumer and [Nancy] Pelosi and people that are bad people that I honestly believe don’t love our country,” he said.
Trump's comments come days after Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused Republicans of trying to “get away with [the] murder” of George Floyd.
"So, when they admit that, and have some suggestions that are worthy of consideration -- but so far they were trying to get away with murder, actually -- the murder of George Floyd," Pelosi said.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer supported Pelosi's controversial comments saying he had no problem with her recent remarks accusing Senate Republicans of murdering George Floyd.
“Pelosi has answered that question herself, and what she said is fine with me," he said.
On Thursday, House Democrats blocked a procedural motion to condemn the nationwide riots and the 'Defund the Police' movement.
Republican South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott blasted Pelosi for stalling on reforms.
“They took a leap back because they don’t want this president to have a victory on another serious issue confronting the minority communities," he said.
"This is pure, pure race politics at its worst,” Scott added.
"Instead of having cameras watching us debate this really important issue for the nation, they would rather cut a deal behind closed doors, so their constituents do not know how they actually voted on the underlying bill.”
The news comes as Arizona Republican Rep. Andy Biggs called for “law and order" after weeks of civil unrest following the death of Floyd.
Biggs blasted Black Lives Matter and far-left group Antifa for sending the nation “up in flames."
