Good ol’ Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is trying to downplay President Donald Trump’s intelligence by claiming negotiating with Trump is “like negotiating with Jell-O.”
Sounds to me like Chucky is just upset that he thought he had a deal with Trump for the budget, but then Trump walked away from it. We don’t want to pay for illegal immigrants! We want Americans put first! Democrats just don’t seem to grasp that.
“I told the president we Democrats were willing to fund the military at the highest levels in history, far above even his budget request,” Schumer continued, “Several hours later he called back. He said, ‘So, I hear we have a three-week deal.’ I said, ‘No, Mr. President, no one is even talking about a three-week deal.'”
“Then a few hours later they called back again, ‘Well we’re going to need this, this, this in addition,’ ”he said, “Things they knew were far, far right and off the table.”
“Negotiating with this White House is like negotiating with Jell-O,” Schumer added, “It’s next to impossible. As soon as you take one step forward, the hard-right forces the president three steps back.”
Maybe it’s “next to impossible” because the liberals want to pass laws that hurt Americans instead of help us!
Lawmakers are still working towards some kind of agreement as the budget is at a deadlock.
