Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Wednesday that President Donald Trump’s warning about “ridiculous” congressional investigations during his State of the Union address showed that “he’s scared” and has “something to hide.”
Schumer’s comments came the morning after Trump threatened not to work with House Democrats on legislation if they move forward with impending oversight investigations into his conduct and personal finances, as well as alleged corruption in the administration.
Appearing on CNN, Schumer said the president’s words showed that “he’s scared.”
“He’s got something to hide,” Schumer said. “Because if he had nothing to hide, he’d just shrug his shoulders and let these investigations go forward. He’s afraid of them.”
