Trump Revives ‘Cryin’ Chuck Schumer’

President Trump revived one of his famous nicknames for a key political figure in a Wednesday morning tweet, calling out “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer” for Schumer’s decision to revoke Democrats’ offer to fund a border wall with Mexico.

The tweet appears to be a response to stories from Tuesday that Schumer offered, and then revoked, $25 billion in funding for President Trump’s desired border wall between the U.S. and Mexico. Schumer reportedly made the offer in an effort to secure permanent legal protections for so-called DREAMers – young, undocumented immigrants whose Obama-era protections Trump revoked in 2017.

Trump has called the Senate minority leader “Cryin’ Chuck” on at least one other occasion, sending a tweet about Schumer in May 2017, amid the fallout over Trump’s fateful decision to fire FBI Director James Comey.

It’s unclear how Trump’s Wednesday morning tweet will impact ongoing negotiations to protect DREAMers and boost border security in the U.S.
