President Donald Trump issued a strongly worded letter to Sen. Trump, who was impeached by the House in December, called the Democrat a "bad" senator and told him NY would have been better prepared if Schumer had spent less time on "your ridiculous impeachment hoax", USA Today reports.

Trump's letter was in response to Schumer, who accused the president of failing to properly manage the delivery of medical goods and supplies to places that needed it.

On Friday, Pelosi said she understands that rivals such as McCarthy will continue to publicly attack her, saying a GOP group linked to the minority leader sent a political mail saying "we've got to stop Pelosi". Stop the pettiness. Let's get it done.

However, Trump had attempted to keep the letter from being sent out after speaking with Schumer on the phone Thursday afternoon.

Trump's letter to Schumer appeared to blame the shortage of supplies, like diagnostic tests, protective gear for medical workers, and ventilators, on impeachment proceedings against Trump.

Trump insisted that Pence has been very competent so far in doing his job to fight COVID-19 and also pointed out to Schumer that a military official, Rear Admiral John Polowczyk, was also assigned with "purchasing" and "distributing" medical supplies, which Schumer allegedly "chose to ignore".

Inviting Schumer to call with any questions he might have, the letter concludes on an even harsher note: "I've known you for many years, but I never knew how bad a senator you are.until I became president".

Trump hit back at Pelosi's announcement during the White House's coronavirus press conference on Thursday.

"As you are aware, the Federal Government is merely a back-up for state governments", Trump continued. "Unfortunately, your state needed far more of a back-up than most others".

"While companies that volunteer to produce ventilators and PPE are to be commended and are appreciated, America can not rely on a patchwork of uncoordinated voluntary efforts to combat the bad magnitude of this pandemic", read Schumer's letter to Trump. "It is the cruelest irony that this nation is now dependent on China for many of these products", Governor Andrew Cuomo said at his daily press briefing on Thursday.
