Senator Schumer Votes Against Trump Nominee Because He’s White

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is under fire for invoking race for his reason to oppose President Trump’s South Carolina federal judge nominee Marvin Quattlebaum.

Fox News reports:

Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the Senate floor Wednesday that the nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum, a white lawyer who is a partner at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough in Greenville, S.C., “speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary.”

South Carolina Senators Tim Scott and Lindsey Graham slammed Schumer’s race-based response.

Senator Tim Scott Tweeted:

 

Senator Lindsey Graham Tweeted:

 

Skin color has nothing to do with a person’s ability to do their job and deliver results.

In Schumer’s world, skin color is more important than qualifications and one’s ability to do their job.
