Trump Tears Into Pelosi and Schumer for Meeting-Skipping Stunt

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi today refused an invitation to meet with the president of the United States at the White House, a slight I have not witnessed in 20 years working at the White House and one that borders, given their positions in government, on the unpatriotic.

Schumer and Pelosi complained about a tweet Trump made earlier in the day saying that he did not see a deal happening on a spending bill, an obvious opening bargaining position that the two Democrats decided to use to create a hissy fit.

“Given that the president doesn’t see a deal between Democrats and the White House, we believe the best path forward is to continue negotiating with our Republican counterparts in Congress instead” of showing up at the White House, the two leaders in a joint statement.

Trump Should Wait Before Politicizing the Terrorist Attack

President Trump this morning blasted Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for his sponsorship of legislation that created the Diversity Visa Program, under which Saifullo Saipov, who committed Tuesday’s terror attack in New York City, entered the country.

Republicans rightly criticize Democrats when they start making a political issue out of every tragic mass shooting while the bodies are still warm. Trump should be uniting the country instead of dividing it at a moment like this. And he especially should lay off the senator from New York, whose job it is to help with the healing from the worst terror attack in New York City since 9/11.
