Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) on Sunday ripped President Trump’s tweet about a planned visit to Missouri while Tropical Storm Harvey continued to leave devastation in its wake in parts of Texas.
“My god. At this exact moment people are dying in the worst natural disaster of his Presidency & instead of leading he’s attacking Democrats,” Murphy tweeted.
Murphy’s comment comes after a tweet from the president containing what appears to be a jab at Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri, who’s up for a third Senate term in 2018.
While the president has issued several tweets providing updates on Harvey, he took heat on Sunday for a series of unrelated tweets on NAFTA negotiations, his proposed border wall with Mexico and a plug for Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke’s book.
