Chuck Schumer Makes LAUGHABLE Offer to Trump
A few days after calling off the shutdown, Leftist Chuck Schumer plays Tina Toughass.
Friday night Schumer made the offer to fund Trump’s wall. Interestingly, funding the wall isn’t up to Schumer. Nevertheless, by Sunday, Schumer rescinded his ridiculous “non-offer”.
As the Washington Post reports:
Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), facing a backlash from liberals that he had been too accommodating, said he had withdrawn an offer to Trump of $25 billion for new border security measures in exchange for permanent legal protections for some undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children.
“We’re going to have to start on a new basis, and the wall offer’s off the table,” Schumer told reporters.
Trump repeatedly promised during the 2016 campaign that he would build a border wall that Mexico would finance. Democrats and some Republicans have balked at the administration’s request of $18 billion to pay for it.
Schumer made the proposal in a major concession to Trump on Friday in a private meeting at the White House, then pulled it back Sunday night, according to a person familiar with the meeting. Then, Schumer acknowledged Tuesday that the offer was no longer operable.
Apparently Schumer now takes his brutal beatdown by President Trump personally. Now he must make a show of force to his base, rescinding offers he can’t even make.
Anybody think President Trump takes the man seriously?
As WaPo painfully pointed out,
Over the weekend, Schumer described the meeting several times in public remarks, saying that Trump “picked a number for the wall, and I accepted it.” At other points Schumer said he “reluctantly” agreed to discuss constructing a wall — but never revealed the sum.
But Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said, “Once Schumer started talking about the president backing away from the deal that never existed, he said he offered the president everything on the wall and the military. That just wasn’t true. . . .
The president knew Schumer was mistreating him.”
Matt House, a spokesman for Schumer, said Mulvaney “once again isn’t telling the truth. Senator Schumer offered the president everything he asked for on the border and more than he asked for on defense.”
Schumer really wants to be believed.
The Democrats have lied so much about Trump, they now believe the lies. But what the Democrats don’t seem to grasp is the public no longer trusts them. They now realize that Democrats are concerned about power and wealth.
DACA is a ploy to get votes…period. The Democratic Party needs Dreamers to win elections. Obama unconstitutionally set up this program knowing that undoing it would cost political capital for Republicans. But Obama didn’t count on a Republican like Trump.
The Trump Plan
Wednesday Trump laid out his immigration plan. It calls for $25 billion to build the wall, along with other “must haves”.
With the wall, end to “chain migration”, and a better Visa system, President Trump is open to granting a path to citizenship to the dreamers.
As Trump said all along, he’s not against immigration. He’s against ILLEGAL immigration. Reuters elaborates:
Trump said he wanted to offer the Dreamers, protected from deportation by the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, an “incentive” of citizenship perhaps in 10 to 12 years. He added that addressing the status of their parents, who entered the United States illegally, was “tricky.”
Trump’s impromptu comments signaled a major breakthrough, said Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, one of the lead lawmakers in the immigration negotiations.
“President Trump’s support for a pathway to citizenship will help us get strong border security measures as we work to modernize a broken immigration system,” he said in a statement. “With this strong statement by President Trump, I have never felt better about our chances of finding a solution on immigration.”
Graham was part of a bipartisan group of three dozen senators who met on Wednesday on Capitol Hill to discuss moving forward on immigration legislation.
After the meeting, Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill expressed cautious optimism to reporters about Trump’s framework, saying “that could go either way,” when asked if it will be helpful to lawmakers.
Trump keeps his promises. And despite Democrats trying to cast him as a liar, Trump proves otherwise.
So when the curtain gets pulled back on the lies of the Left, to borrow a term from Pelosi, it will be Armageddon for the Left.
To Schumer I say, President Trump will get his border wall. And yes, Mexico will ultimately pay for it.
Further, President Trump will get his version of DACA, and the Democrats will gladly accept the terms. What Trump allows the Democrats to win during his presidency is what the Democrats can celebrate when returning home to their bases.
Make no mistake about it, Trump is in charge. He’s 5 steps ahead of the hapless Democrats, and they know it.
