Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is engaged in a back and forth with President Trump, following the latter pointing out that the terrorist who killed 8 people in New York City was able to enter the country via Schumer’s co-sponsored “Diversity Visa Lottery Program”.

Trump fired off a series of tweets this morning, noting that he is opposed to the scheme and wishes to see it scrapped:

Schumer was a co-sponsor of the immigration scheme all the way back in 1990. It was signed into law by then President George H.W. Bush.

An angry Schumer hit back at Trump, accusing him of politicizing the attack:

Schumer then took to the House floor and doubled down on his earlier smackdown:

“President Bush in a moment of national tragedy, understood the meaning of his high office and sought to bring our country together,” said Schumer.

He then invoked the 9/11 attacks, stating “President Trump, where is your leadership? The contrast between President Bush’s actions after 9/11 and President Trump’s actions this morning could not be starker.”

The internet noted that Schumer is no stranger to immediately politicizing such incidents:

Meanwhile, mentally unhinged Democratic supporters accused Trump of being anti-semitic:

Former Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz (Utah) weighed in on the topic, stating that the State Department’s Diversity Visa Lottery program “is the most ridiculous” method of choosing who is allowed to enter the country.

“I don’t know that it will be bipartisan,” said Chaffetz, now a Fox News contributor. “It is the most ridiculous way to pick the next United States citizen. Not on merit, not on family, just literally a lottery.”

“Coming to the United States is a privilege,” Chaffetz added, noting that any immigrants with a record of criminal activity should not be permitted to enter the US, and they should be deported if if they get arrested while in the country.

“We don’t need people like that here,” Chaffetz said. “And you should get rid of the families.”

“We’re so nice, and so politically correct, ‘oh we’ll just keep them here,'” he added.
