Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer: Trump 'has made a mess of foreign policy'

The top Democrat in the Senate said on Sunday he is worried that the U.S. strike on Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani has brought the U.S. closer to a war in the Middle East.

"Let's face it, this president has made a mess of foreign policy. North Korea, they're much stronger than they were when he started. In Syria, he messed up, every encounter he has with (Russian President Vladimir) Putin he loses," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said on ABC's "This Week."

"So I am really worried," he added, saying that this was why Congress needs to assert itself.

Soleimani, the leader of Iran's elite Quds Force, was killed Thursday in an U.S. airstrike in Iraq, carried out at President Donald Trump's direction. The Pentagon has already announced that it would deploy 3,500 troops to the region in response to rising tensions.


Stable genius in action.
