WASHINGTON, District of Columbia- President Donald Trump in a tweet is alleging that Senator Chuck Schumer has illegal connections to Russia and is using a 14 year-old photo to prove his point.
The photo Trump used was apparently taken in 2003 when Russian President Vladimir Putin ate a Krispy Kreme doughnut with the senator at a gas station opening. The station belongs to the Russian company Lukoil.
“We should start an immediate investigation into @SenSchumer and his ties to Russia and Putin. A total hypocrite!” Trump tweeted.
