Dov Hikind is walking away from the Democrat party. At least until Chuck Schumer and the Democratic party becomes honest and sane. Hmmm. He may have walked away forever then. Hikind is a longtime and very powerful man in the New York Assembly. He criticized Schumer, and then continued to list the many accomplishments of President Trump. Hikind is no DINO (Democrat In Name Only). He is a bonafide left winger. The world has not seen a miracle such as Hikind praising Republicans since Moses parted the Red Sea! In a letter to Schumer, Hikind reminded him of all the good things that have happened to this country under the leadership of Donald Trump.
“You forgot to tell us about the economy. As good as it’s been, economists expect even more growth through the end of the year,” Hikind began. “You forgot to tell us about unemployment, which is lower than it has been in decades, while economic confidence is at a 17-year high. It’s also at a record low for minorities.”
Hikind chided Schumer for failing to acknowledge the United States’ strengthened ties with Israel which were weakened under President Barack Obama. “You forgot to tell us about the most remarkable relationship between the United States and our ally Israel ever. Or about moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, which you yourself applauded.
Turning his attention to the now-defunct Iran deal, Hikind criticized Schumer for his silence after President Trump withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
“You forgot to tell us about the successful dismantling of the Iran Deal—a deal which you yourself opposed and knew threatened the rest of the world by making it easier for Iran, the leading supporter of world terrorism, to develop nuclear weapons.”
“Senator Schumer, as a fellow Democrat, I ask you to work to restore sanity and honesty to our party so I can feel good about supporting it fully. Until then, I’m afraid the Republicans have my support.”
Ouch! That’s going to leave a mark!
