SCHUMER: ‘Every Foreign Policy Area Trump Touches, We’re Worse Off Than Before’

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.06.20

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer trashed the President’s foreign-policy approach at the US Capitol Monday; viciously claiming “we’re worse off than we were before he started with it.”

“In just about every foreign policy area President Trump touches, we’re worse off than we were before he started with it,” the top Democrat told lawmakers.

 

Rep. Ilhan Omar made similar comments earlier today; baselessly asserting the President may start a war with Iran to boost his “hotel revenues.”

“Trump needs to immediately divest from his businesses and comply with the emoluments clause. Iran could threaten Trump hotels *worldwide* and he could provoke war over the loss of revenue from skittish guests. His business interests should not be driving military decisions,” posted Omar on Twitter.

 

“I am introducing a War Powers Resolution in the House with @BLeeforCongress to prevent an illegal war with Iran. We must not allow this President to send our men and women into harm’s way without Congressional authority,” she added.

BREAKING: McConnell ‘Shoots Down’ Schumer’s Demands on Senate Impeachment Rules

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.17.19

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell rejected an initial offer from Sen. Chuck Schumer Tuesday regarding his requests for a potential impeachment trial in the Senate; calling his proposal a “fishing expedition.”

“The Senate Democratic leader would apparently like our chamber to do House Democrats’ homework for them. He wants to volunteer the Senate’s time and energy on a fishing expedition,” McConnell said.

“McConnell’s comments are the first time he’s responded to Schumer’s offer, sent on Sunday night, which outlined Democrats’ opening proposal on how to handle the Senate’s looming impeachment trial,” reports The Hill.

 

“The preferable path would have been an in-person conversation, which none the less, I still hope to pursue,” McConnell added.

“The Democratic leader wants to write a completely new set of rules for President Trump,” said the Senate Leader. “The same process that Senator Schumer though was good enough for President Clinton he doesn’t want to afford President Trump, go figure.”

CHUCK DIGS IN: Schumer Says Dems 'FIRMLY Against the Wall,’ Calls for ‘Humanitarian Aid’

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.25.19

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer doubled-down on the Democrats’ flat-out refusal to budge on border security Friday; saying his party was “firmly against the wall” and future proposals should focus on “humanitarian aid.”

“We in Congress will roll-up our sleeves and try and try to find some agreement on border security. We don’t agree on some specifics on border security. Democrats are firmly against the wall. But we agree on many things such as the need for drug inspection technology and humanitarian aid,” said Sen. Schumer.

“Today, the President will sign the bill to re-open the government… and hopefully it means a lesson learned for the White House,” he added.
