Democrats, not Russia, Are to Blame for Defeat of Hillary Clinton – Senate Minority Leader
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) says that Democrats, not Russia, are to blame for Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Trump.
"When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things – James Comey, Russia – you blame yourself", Schumer said in an interview with The Washington Post.
According to him, the Democrats chose an unsuccessful strategy for presidential elections.
"Last year, much of the Democrats’ strategy hinged on criticism of Trump in hopes that the many controversies swirling around the GOP presidential candidate would damage down-ballot Republicans, a plan which largely failed", Chuck Schumer said.
The politician stresses that the Democrats should focus not on criticizing Russia, but on planning a new agenda which includes the slogan "A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, and Better Future".
