Trump jabs Schumer as 'cryin' Chuck
The Senate's Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer, is taking back his offer to President Trump to fund his "big beautiful wall."
"The wall offer is off the table," Schumer told reporters on Tuesday. "That was part of a package" that's now defunct.
Schumer first made the offer on Friday during a meeting with Trump at the White House, part of negotiations to avert a government shutdown. Schumer said he put Trump's “signature campaign issue on the table in exchange" for legal protections DREAMers, young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children.
Cryin’ Chuck Schumer fully understands, especially after his humiliating defeat, that if there is no Wall, there is no DACA. We must have safety and security, together with a strong Military, for our great people!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 24, 2018
