Chuck Schumer and the Democrats have drawn a line in the sand.
He is threatening to hold the military hostage.
And you won’t believe the fight he has picked with President Trump.
President Trump is trying to negotiate a government funding bill that fully funds our military needs.
But Chuck Schumer and the Democrats are blocking any legislation from having a vote in the Senate.
He’s obstructing funding for the military because he is adamant any bill include amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.
“Yet Senate Democrats — furious with Trump for his reversal last week on a bipartisan Senate plan to protect 700,000 young immigrants from deportation — have signaled a new willingness to take a harder line. A handful who previously supported short-term funding measures have declared they will not this time around, including Tom Udall and Angus King, an independent who caucuses with Democrats.
“This CR can’t get the job done… We’re going to have to go in a different direction,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on the Senate floor. Schumer didn’t declare that Democrats would vote against the bill, but he noted that momentum was clearly heading in that direction.
Schumer mocked President Donald Trump and McConnell for an “unending flow of chaos from the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue,” including the prolonged fight over the Dreamers, which has dragged on for months now.
“The president is like Abbott, the majority leader is like Costello,” Schumer said, referring to the famous comedy duo.”
Trump is willing to negotiate on this issue.
He is willing to trade protected status for the so called “DREAMers” for funding for the border wall and an end to the visa lottery system.
But Schumer and the Democrats are hostage takers willing to weaken America so they can grant amnesty – and voting rights – to illegal aliens.
