Schumer Response to President Trump’s Suggestion to Have Russia Rejoin the G-7

June 8, 2018

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding President Trump’s suggestion that Russia should be readmitted to the G-7:

“President Trump is turning our foreign policy into an international joke, doing lasting damage to our country, without any rhyme or reason.

“We need the president to be able to distinguish between our allies and adversaries and to treat each accordingly. On issue after issue, he’s failed to do that.

“The president’s support for inviting Russia back into the G-7, just after they meddled in the election to support his campaign, will leave millions of Americans with serious questions and suspicions.”
