President Trump called out Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer during a fiery speech Tuesday night; slamming the liberal lawmaker for starting the “visa lottery” and accusing him of crying “fake tears” over immigration.
The Commander-in-Chief was speaking before a packed audience in Nashville, Tennessee when he hilariously mocked the left-wing legislator; joking that he wasn’t actually crying but was in fact “sweating.”
“And then, of course, you have the wonderful lottery system that was started by Chuck Schumer or sometimes referred to Crying Chuck Schumer, right?” asked the President.
“He was working those career tears,” Trump joked. “He was trying so hard. Not tears, it was sweat. Cryin’ Chuck wanted to have a lottery system. Think of it, a lottery. You pick people. Now, let me ask you, so these countries that are sending people: Do you think they are sending us their finest?”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer railed against President Trump’s harsh rhetoric towards violent street gang MS-13 Wednesday; taking the President’s comments out of context and equating violent offenders to “our great grandparents.”

SCHUMER MELTDOWN: Chuck GOES NUCLEAR on Senate Floor as GOP Passes Tax Cuts
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer threw a public temper tantrum from the floor of the US Capitol on Tuesday night, scolding his GOP colleagues who were quietly speaking while the liberal legislator railed against the Republican tax legislation.
The lawmaker was desperately attempting to sway Senators from voting “yes” on the tax proposal, erroneously claiming that “millions” of middle class families would see a “tax hike” under the current bill.
Schumer paused mid-sentence before unloading on GOP Senators, calling for order as his colleagues quietly negotiated in the chamber.
“Nearly 145 million middle class families under $200k will either get tax hikes… Can we have order Mr. President?” raged Schumer.
“This is serious stuff! We believe you’re messing up America. You could pay attention for a couple of minutes,” he scolded his GOP colleagues.
