Schumer's comments come after Trump announced Friday that he would push ahead with his transgender ban and just hours later pardoned the controversial former sheriff, Arpaio, who had been convicted of contempt of a court for ignoring a ban on racial profiling.
Arpaio was convicted on July 31 by a U.S. federal judge, who ruled the elected sheriff had deliberately violated a 2011 court order barring his officers from stopping and detaining Hispanic drivers exclusively on suspicion that they were in the United States illegally.
Trump hinted last Tuesday at a rally in Phoenix, Arizona that he would pardon the former Maricopa County sheriff, adding that he did not want to do it that night, "because I don't want to cause any controversy".
Others suggested that the pardon could be sending a message for any future figures who may be facing indictment, particularly as Robert Mueller continues his investigation into whether Trump campaign officials had any ties to Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Sally Yates, who served as the attorney general until she was sacked by Trump, tweeted, "With his pardon pen, POTUS reveals his own contempt for our Constitution, our courts, and our founding principles of equality and justice". The open support of the conservative host was a stark contrast against what Arpaio described in the interview as "certain news media, they've tried to destroy me all these years".
