Chuck Schumer just betrayed Donald Trump in this awful way

Donald Trump is locked in a high-stakes battle with a hostile foreign power that could define his Presidency.

If Trump wins, it could mean big news for America.

But Chuck Schumer just betrayed Donald Trump in this awful way.

President Trump slapped 25 percent tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods as a way to force China back to the negotiating table after the Chinese backed away from an agreement they made that would have helped to level the trade imbalance between the two countries.

At first, Chuck Schumer expressed support for the President, telling Trump to “hang tough.”

But Schumer sensed an opportunity.

Democrats believe if the trade war grinds on China will try to tank the global economy with tariffs and retaliatory measures.

That will drag down the U.S. stock market and rob Trump of his strongest talking point – that he is presiding over a booming economy.

That’s why Schumer and the Democrats changed their tune.

Politico reports:

In interviews with a dozen House and Senate Democrats from the Midwest and in leadership, most lawmakers refused to back Trump’s offensive against China, particularly as he’s kept tariffs on U.S. allies.

Even those most willing to praise Trump on trade have been notably reserved.

“We should not be having a multifront war on tariffs,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Trump’s closest Democratic ally on the topic. “I would focus everything on China. And get the Europeans, Canadians and Mexicans to be on our side and focus on China. Because they are the great danger.”

Schumer has repeatedly urged Trump publicly and privately to “stay tough,” including in a meeting at the White House in April. Later Tuesday, the New York Democrat said he doesn’t “fully agree” with Trump’s approach of imposing tariffs on allies as well as China and warned the president from coming up with a “weak solution.”

Democrats were supportive of Trump’s trade measures until they smelled political opportunity.

Politics used to stop at the water’s edge.

But Democrats have thrown that bit of patriotism out the window in order to score cheap political points against Donald Trump.

    Yes Tom, and as I watched the Senate debates live one late evening in the fall of 2017, when Chuck Schumer said “ we, the Senate and Congress as a whole have MORE power than The President”.
    I have not forgotten the smirk on his face either.

    Betty you are as I said before a retarded cockroach Trump-hating a-hole but what I have said just might be insulting to all cockroaches so I owe them an apology.

  15. Gregory Sullivan says:

    Hey Joe the false “plumber”, we cannot sustain the nearly one way trade with communist China in which they impose huge tariffs on our imports to them and we have none on their’s. This is unastainable and cannot be continued to the point that China will eventually own us and put us into debt that we will never get out of . I’m sure that there will be suffering on our side which cannot be helped but we eventually will come out as winners with a one to one fair trade agreement which is as it should be or no trade with them at all stupid.
