Chuck Schumer: ‘We Cannot Afford A Twitter Presidency’

New York Democrat Chuck Schumer, in his first official speech since becoming Senate minority leader earlier this week, called on Donald Trump to refrain from using social media in the White House.

“With all due respect, America cannot afford a Twitter presidency,” Schumer declared, according to the Wall Street Journal. He added: “Many Americans are afraid, Mr. President-elect, that instead of rolling up your sleeves and forging serious policies … that, for you, Twitter suffices.”

Newsmax reported that the senator also advised Trump to stand up to conservative lawmakers. “If President-elect Trump lets the hard-right members of Congress and his Cabinet run the show, if he attempts to adopt their time-worn policies which benefit the elites, the special interests, corporate America — not the working man and woman — his presidency will not succeed,” Schumer predicted.

The Democratic leader claimed that “too many of (Trump’s) Cabinet picks support the same hard-right, doctrinaire positions that many in the Republican Party have held for years; policies that the American people have repeatedly rejected.”

Schumer alleged that Trump is in “lockstep” with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, whom the CIA has accused of coordinating the Russian hacking of Democratic officials’ computers in an attempt to help the real-estate tycoon win last November’s presidential election.
