Dem Senator: “Trump Is Scum For Fueling Racist Hate”

The Insider reports:

Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts issued a firm rebuke to President Trump on Twitter Monday afternoon. “Donald trump is scum for fueling racist hate and violence in our country,” Markey, a 73-year-old Democrat, tweeted.

Earlier on Monday, Trump called governors “a bunch of jerks” and “most of you are weak” during a conference call where he called for them to “dominate” protesters and let police use more force.

Markey called Trump “scum” just a few hours after the audio was obtained by Insider and other news outlets. The comment is perhaps one of the harshest rebukes a sitting senator has issued to President Trump thus far.
