President Trump sent a letter to Democratic leader Sen. Chuck Schumer on Thursday accusing him of leaving New York "unprepared" for the coronavirus pandemic now crippling the state because of the "impeachment hoax."

In a blistering personal attack on Schumer ("I never knew how bad a Senator you are for the state of New York"), the president lashed out over criticism of what many see as a delayed federal response to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the country.

In an earlier letter Thursday, Schumer criticized the administration's handling of the crisis, saying that "the existing federal leadership void has left America with an ugly spectacle in which States and cities are literally fending for themselves, often in conflict and competition with each other, when trying to procure precious medical supplies and equipment."
