President Donald Trump got called out for trying to sow disagreement between New York Democrats.


The president complained Friday morning that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer had criticized his administration's still-slow response to the coronavirus outbreak -- and encouraged right-wing bogeyman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to challenge him in the primary.

"Cryin’ Chuck Schumer was on a late night show using a false talking point over & over again," Trump tweeted. "'We don’t have enough testing,' he would repeat, when he knows we have done a great job on Testing, just like we have on Ventilators and everything else. He lied, gave NY SALT. Run AOC!"

Other social media users busted the president for trying to meddle in Democratic congressional races.
