It is not clear whether Schumer meant dumping Trump via the ballot box in four years when he is up for reelection, by impeachment. or by any means necessary.
A former Obama administration official, Rosa Brooks, recently broached the idea of removing Trump by a military coup.
Schumer spoke from a lectern with the word, “RESIST” on the front–the rallying cry of Trump opponents seeking to end his presidency.
Schumer said to the crowd of several thousand protesters, according to WPIX-TV, “I know you have my back and I have yours. We are going to ‘Dump Trump!'”
Schumer then led the crowd in chants of, “Dump Trump!”
Video of Schumer was posted by ABC News.
