What’s going on?
As usual, both political “teams” are trying to spin the latest tragedy to fit their agenda. After the terrorist attack in New York City on Tuesday, President Donald Trump pointed at Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for supporting the “diversity visa” program that reportedly allowed suspect Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov to come into the country.
So what did Trump tweet this time?
“I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this! The terrorist came into our country through what is called the ‘Diversity Visa Lottery Program,’ a Chuck Schumer beauty,” Trump said in a pair of tweets on Tuesday.
On today’s show, Glenn corrected the record on who officially gave us that immigration policy: a Republican president.
“It’s actually not a ‘Chuck Schumer beauty,’” Glenn fact-checked the tweet. “Do you know who signed that bill into law?” he asked. “George H.W. Bush.”
