Schumer demanded to have a “senior military official” in charge of the supply chain, apparently, completely unaware that one had already been appointed.
The always political Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer sent a letter to President Trump today saying it was “long past the time” to name a senior military officer to lead the supply-chain effort.
Senator Schumer was attempting to construct a political narrative around the administration not taking action to secure U.S. supply needs combating COVID-19.
The letter was/is ridiculous; and built upon an entirely false premise; because Admiral John Polowczyk is already in that supply-chain procurement and distribution position working closely with Peter Navarro after the invocation of the Defense Production Act.
Replying to the ridiculous Schumer letter, President Trump calls out his stupidity:
This letter follows a tweet earlier in the day calling out Chuck Schumer for being a political idiot.
Given his recent ‘demand,’ it seems highly accurate.
