“Democrats Hope Trump Will Make Deal On Dreamers After Debt Ceiling Cave”


HUFFINGTON POST

“WASHINGTON ― Democrats say they are now in a far stronger position to protect young undocumented immigrants after President Donald Trump unexpectedly agreed to their demands in debt ceiling and government spending negotiations during a meeting at the White House on Wednesday.

Trump sided with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) Wednesday by accepting a plan to keep the government funded and to increase the government’s borrowing limit for another three months. GOP congressional leaders at the meeting, as well as Trump’s own treasury secretary, wanted a longer period for the debt limit extension.

Instead of siding with the leaders of his own party, Trump gave Pelosi and Schumer what they wanted.” MORE

“Chuck Schumer Warns Trump A Phony ‘Twitter’ Presidency Will Fail”


HUFFINGTON POST

WASHINGTON ― Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) aimed his first speech as the new Senate minority leader at President-elect Donald Trump Tuesday, warning his fellow New Yorker that his presidency will fail if he just governs by Twitter and doesn’t deliver on his campaign pledges.

Trump is infamously fond of making pronouncements through social media, and infamously hard to hold accountable for his claims, according to independent fact checkers.

Schumer suggested that Trump will have to do much better on all accounts, but argued that Trump seems to be heading away from his promises to reform Washington.”  MORE
