State Assemblyman Dov Hikind of Brooklyn slammed Schumer’s attacks on President Trump, which were sent as part of a fundraising call, Fox News reports.
Hikind, who is not running for re-election, wrote on Facebook that Schumer, who is also from Brooklyn, “omitted vital information” about the economy, potential peace with North Korea and low unemployment.
“Senator Schumer, in your letter you promise to fight for Democratic values and go on at great length to fully villainize the current administration,” Hikind wrote. “You forgot to tell us about the economy. As good as it’s been, economists expect even more growth through the end of the year.”
Hikind said the Democratic Party is “betraying the ideals that our party once stood for — American values.” “As a fellow Democrat, I ask you to work to restore sanity and honesty to our party,” Hikind wrote in response. “Until then, I’m afraid the Republicans have my support.” Read more at Fox News.
