Chuck Schumer Rages at Mike Pompeo After ‘Second Term’ Comment

The Beltway is getting heated this week.

This week has been a bitter one in Washington DC, as President Trump’s refusal to concede the 2020 election begins to wrinkle the noses of some of The Beltway’s stalwarts.

On Saturday, after several days of counting, the Associated Press announced that Donald Trump had lost the election to former Vice President Joe Biden.  Trump, as many had worried might be the case, did not accept these results, and immediately began a process of litigation that he believes could keep him in the White House come January.

Earlier this week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was asked by the press if he believed that the President’s reticence to allow the transition to a Biden administration could hamper our national security.  Pompeo responded by saying that there will be a smooth transition of power to a “second” term for President Trump.

This did not sit well with Democrats.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said “we don’t have time for these kinds of games” after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo earlier Tuesday said there would be a “smooth” transition to a second term for President Trump, who lost last week’s election to Democrat Joe Biden.

“Look at reality,” Schumer said in response to a question from a reporter about Pompeo’s comments.

“Secretary Pompeo, Joe Biden has won. He’s won the election. Now move on. Let’s bring this country together and get things done. We have a COVID crisis raging. We don’t have time for these kinds of games.”

President Trump this week launched another lawsuit aimed at preventing a Biden transition, this time in Michigan.
