Chuck Schumer may have met his match in President Trump, as the rare Republican who doesn’t negotiate with surrender as his objective. Schumer went to the WH to threaten a
You almost have to laugh at the transparent politics and its supporting propaganda spewing out of the mainstream media, although our military men and women and their families certainly won’t find being Chuck Schumer’s bargaining chip humorous. Neither will the poor kids that the Democrats supposedly care so much about. They’ll let American kids in Head Start programs go without in order to pander to foreign squatters.
Leftist online rag Roll Call reported, “Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer left the Capitol for 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Friday afternoon with a chance to broker a government shutdown-averting deal with President Donald Trump — and without Republican lawmakers in the room.”
One of the constitutionally mandated functions of the Congress is to fund the government. It’s not to hold funding hostage as a means of gaining concessions from the opposition party but to responsibly allocate funds so that the rest of the government can operate.
Schumer is attempting to extort citizenship for illegals from the America first President and the GOP under threat of a shutdown. He’s not doing his job as a Senator but rather abusing his power mobster-style for political gain. He’s a globalist Democrat, that’s how they operate. It’s what reckless, opportunistic America-haters do.
Rather than simply voting to fund the government as the Constitution says they “shall” do, Schumer has a new tactic, backing a short term three day continuing resolution over a four week version because he wants to negotiate over the weekend and force, under threat of a “shutdown,” a vote for DACA amnesty on Monday.
He wants to make his stand for his demands now, leaving himself a cushion of a Month before the March 5th expiration of the six month phase out of DACA, just in case Republicans do the unthinkable and hold to their promise to the American people. One skeptical White House official asked, “So Chuck Schumer won’t support a four-week CR without DACA in it, but he wants a three-day CR without DACA in it?”
“It’s a major concern,” the aide said of Friday’s private Trump-Schumer meeting. He noted that “House leadership is playing coy about calling a play on whether to stay or go. They are leaving it at telling members to stay flexible. There is real concern something nefarious is afoot. What Trump needs to do is bring Schumer to the White House, bring all cameras in and publicly shame him.”
Trump did bring Schumer to the White House on Friday, but the cameras stayed out and the conversation, without Dick Durbin in the room, remained private. Schumer issued a statement afterwards, claiming limited progress, without specifics.
Schumer told reporters following the 90-minute meeting, “We had a long and detailed meeting.” We discussed all of the major outstanding issues. We made some progress, but we still have a good number of disagreements. The discussions will continue.”
In other words, President Trump held his ground and called Schumer’s bluff. Now the Democrats will retreat to the sanctuary of the DC swamp to plot the next phase of their power play to add a population of ignorant, third world parasitic voters to their rolls. Schumer would sacrifice the military and poor Americans and shutdown the government in a heartbeat if it weren’t a loser for Dems. But it is. Americans like being put first now that they’ve had a taste of it, even Democrats.
In a battle between what military families need to survive and giving undeserving foreigners the jackpot of a citizenship handout, Schumer has found himself in familiar territory, opposing the Americans he seeks to exploit.
