In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) set the stage for uncompromising partisanship in the upcoming presidential term. “The only way we’re going to work with him is if he moves completely in our direction and abandons his Republican colleagues,” Schumer told Bash.
Schumer continued: “Ninety, 95 percent of the time we’ll be holding [Trump’s] feet to the fire.”
Bash quoted Democracy For America, a progressive advocacy organization, as saying, “Democratic leaders from Chuck Schumer down need to stop playing footsie with Trump.”
“My views are exactly the same as Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders,” Schumer said, a leftward lurch from his previous positions.
Bash, somewhat surprised, asked: “Since when?”
“We’re sticking to our principles. We’re not compromising for its own sake. We’re not taking a quarter of a loaf to say, quote, ‘we can get something done,'” Schumer responded.
