Schumer ‘afraid’ of what Trump will agree to in Putin meeting
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday expressed concerns about President Trump meeting one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying he is “afraid” of what deal Trump might agree to in the sit-down.
Schumer, speaking to reporters, argued that when Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un they “took him to the cleaners.” A meeting with Putin, Schumer warned, could result in even bigger concessions.
“It’s even worse for him to meet with a very, very clever, out-for-himself man like President Putin alone. And I am very much afraid what he would give away without any advisers to keep him in check,” Schumer told reporters.
