Senator Charles Schumer is calling the President's plan to privatize the National Air Traffic Control System bad for consumers.

The New York Democrat said Trump's plan would give airlines too much control over consumer costs.

The President announced the plan last week, saying it would increase safety and reduce passenger wait times.

However, Schumer believes that in the event of an emergency, privatization could hurt communication between air traffic controllers and the Department of Defense.
