Chuck Schumer is barreling toward a collision with Donald Trump.
He is dead set on granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.
And he just threatened Trump in one disgusting way.
Trump was supposed to have a meeting today at the White House with Congressional leaders about the government funding which runs out in December.
But Democrats are adamant about including amnesty so-called “DREAMer” illegal aliens in the deal.
Trump’s position is that any immigration reform that does not benefit American workers will be rejected.
So he tweeted out that Schumer and Nancy Pelosi were bargaining in bad faith due to their insistence on amnesty for illegal aliens.
Meeting with “Chuck and Nancy” today about keeping government open and working. Problem is they want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes. I don’t see a deal!

In response, Schumer and Pelosi disrespected Trump by refusing to show up at the White House.
And Schumer fired off a statement blasting Trump as a “destructive force.”
“Schumer said, “As I said, there are serious issues in front of us. We don’t have time to waste. We don’t have games to play. We need to fund the military. We need to protect millions of American pensions, fund scientific research and student loans. We need to rebuild in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and California. And we need to protect the DREAMers. If the president reverses course and decides he wants to be a constructive force, working with both sides to forge a bipartisan deal, we’re happy to meet with him anytime, anywhere, any place.”
He added, “But as long as he remains a destructive force, it would be a waste of everyone’s time to continue working with someone who clearly has no interest in coming to an agreement. We hope the president, in order to avoid this calamity, will change his mind. The President and our Republican friends run the House and Senate. They have a responsibility, a responsibility not to let the government run out of funds. We’re willing to work with them, but they have to do it in a bipartisan way.”
Will Trump stand up to Schumer’s threats to shut down the government over amnesty for illegals?
