Chuck Schumer attacked Trump with these two words that will make you furious
Chuck Schumer just escalated the border wall fight.
Last week, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi visited the Oval Office where they were exposed in front of the TV cameras for blocking the border wall.
And Schumer used two words that revealed he’s out of arguments.
In an interview with Meet the Press, Schumer dipped to a new low.
While Pelosi and Schumer have refused to engage in a real debate, Schumer had the gall to declare the President’s reaction a “temper tantrum.”
He knows the American people want a border wall. That’s why Trump won in the first place.
Schumer is simply resorting to petty name-calling that the media will run with so he can avoid getting the job done.
NBC News reports:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Sunday said President Donald Trump is preventing a deal to avert a partial government shutdown because of a “temper tantrum” over his demand for more funding to build a border wall.
Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” just five days before funding deadline to keep several key federal agencies open, Schumer, D-N.Y., said that he and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., are standing firm in their offers to Trump and that it’s up to the president to come to the table.
“We Democrats, Leader Pelosi and I, offered the president two options as to how to avoid the shutdown,” he said.
“We should not let a temper tantrum, threats, push us in the direction of doing something even our Republicans colleagues know is wrong.”
So far Pelosi and Schumer have refused to budge on border security.
Trump has even threatened to shut down the government if the House and Senate do not provide funding for the wall.
Meanwhile, Democrats continue to claim we can have border security without the wall.
But how has that worked out?
This is the same party that was calling to abolish I.C.E. just a few months ago.
President Trump is refusing to yield.
The President is expected to receive a great deal of backlash over any government shutdown.
But he’s never backed down from a fight and it may be worthwhile if he gets the wall built.
