Donald Trump Taunts Chuck Schumer With A Nickname Over DACA And The Wall

President Donald Trump challenged Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer after his failed attempt to shut down the government and force Republicans into a DACA amnesty deal.

“Cryin’ Chuck Schumer fully understands, especially after his humiliating defeat, that if there is no Wall, there is no DACA,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Tuesday night. “We must have safety and security, together with a strong Military, for our great people!”

Trump did not mention the other White House immigration reform principles which include an end to chain migration and the end of the visa lottery program.

The White House declared the Senate Flake/Graham/Durbin amnesty bill “dead on arrival” on Tuesday, but said they were open to a bill that addressed their three top priorities on immigration.

“The President has laid out exactly what he wants to see, and he’s laid out the principles that need to be addressed for a piece of legislation that he’s actually willing to sign,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters on Tuesday.

But Schumer appears no longer interested in reaching a deal, asking supporters of amnesty to vote for Democrats in 2018 to make it happen.

“We’re doing everything we can. But what people have to understand is, we don’t have a magic wand,” he said in an interview with MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. “If we became the majority next year, if the House becomes the majority, we will get DREAMers.”
