Jon Schwarz goes into all the terrible positions that Chuck Schumer, whom the Democrats chose as their leader in the US Senate, has taken over the years. Schumer has been an uncritical supporter of Israel and advocated for much of the neoconservative agenda that has brought so much ruin and suffering in the Middle East.
Schumer’s positions on domestic policy leave much to be desired, but not on every issue. By contrast, his views on foreign policy are largely indistinguishable from the Republican Party in general and Trump specifically.
So taken together, it’s obvious that Schumer does not and never will offer voters an alternative to Trump and Republicans in general on the most important questions of national security. That’s because Schumer truly, deeply and sincerely agrees with them.
As long as Schumer is the leader of the Democrats in the US Senate, we will have a terrible foreign policy.
