Schumer: Trump’s Tweet About Me and Pelosi ‘Makes Enacting a War Powers Act So Important’

On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that an image President Trump retweeted depicting both Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wearing traditional Muslim attire and in front of an Iranian flag “makes enacting a War Powers Act so important. Because it shows that this president, when it comes to things like this, is almost out of control.”
