Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy unloaded on President Trump just hours before his State of the Union Address Tuesday; bizarrely critiquing the Commander-in-Chief for not solving the Venezuelan political crisis “in two weeks.”
“Trump has compromised our country’s security in a million ways. His Administration is an ongoing foreign policy garbage fire,” tweeted Murphy. “Here’s a quick thread of the national security lies he will likely tell at tonight’s #SOTU and what the real deal is.”
“Trump will pat himself on the back re Venezuela,” he added. “But nothing has happened in 2 weeks since he recognized Guaido. Military support for Maduro hasn’t budged, and if Maduro survives, our feckless play makes us weaker”
Trump will pat himself on the back re Venezuela.
But nothing has happened in 2 weeks since he recognized Guaido. Military support for Maduro hasn't budged, and if Maduro survives, our feckless play makes us weaker.

The President will deliver his annual State of the Union address Tuesday evening from the House of Representatives. The event was delayed one-week to accommodate the 35-day-long partial government shutdown.
