Chuck Schumer Warns President To “Stay Out Of Negotiations”
CBS News did an interview with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Wednesday morning following the President’s State of the Union address Tuesday night.
The anchors asked Schumer about whether or not they were making progress in negotiations for a border wall and to avoid a government shutdown.
“The committees are making progress. The president’s got to stay out of it. We can get it done. We’ve set it up so that Democrats and Republicans, House and Senate, can come to an agreement and keep the government open. And if the president stays out of it, they’re very likely to come to a good agreement.
Also really notice what they interviewers are asking Schumer about what Trump said about immigration and his response when he says the President says we have more jobs, but says immigration is taking away jobs. That’s not at all what the President meant. What the President said was, “no issue better illustrates the divide between America’s working class and America’s political class than illegal immigration.”
What the President is saying is that most American’s (working class) want something done about the illegal immigration, but Congress (political class) don’t. This is the divide.
Instead, Schumer makes it sound like the President contradicts himself about jobs when that’s not at all the issue.
This, my friends, is how Democrats deceive you.
On the one hand, he’s saying that we have more jobs than we’ve ever had before. And on the other hand, he’s saying illegal immigration is taking away all our jobs. As usual, the speech is just filled with total contradictions that don’t add up … We all want to secure our border, but it’s not a crisis. It doesn’t demand a government shutdown, and the president paid the price.
If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation.
That line, like so much of the speech, just was partisan and self-serving. I took it that the president’s scared. The bottom line is that we are, as a country, we’ve always had Congress do oversight over the executive branch. That’s how the Founding Fathers set it up.
It’s sort of a metaphor. The president says one thing, and the reality is another. He said after he first met with Kim Jong Un that … we’ll have no nuclear North Korea. Of course that’s not true.”
