SCHUMER SHOCKER: Chuck Says He’ll VOTE NO on Trump Nominee Because of Skin Color

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.28.18

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced his opposition to President Trump’s nominee for a US District Court Judge in South Carolina this week, saying he’s “voting no” because the candidate is a “white” male replacing two of former President Obama’s “African-American nominees.”

Schumer was speaking on the Senate floor when he announced his stunning decision; slamming the Commander-in-Chief’s “lack of diversity” in his judicial nominees and saying the courts should start to “look like the America it represents.”

“The nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary,” Schumer complained. “Quattlebaum replaces not one, but two scuttled Obama nominees who were African American.”

“As of February 14th, 83 percent of the President Trump’s confirmed nominees were male, 92 percent were white. That represents the lowest share of non-white candidates in three decades,” he continued. “I’ll be voting no on the Quattlebaum nomination.”
