Hot Mic Catches Schumer Bragging About Trump Bromance: ‘He Likes Us! He Likes Me, Anyway’
Judging by his comments which were picked up by a hot mic, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is feeling good so far about his discussions with President Trump on DACA.
There has been a lot of media intrigue today about how Trump reportedly reached an agreement with Schumer and other Congressional Democrats for protecting DREAMers from deportation. Trump has tried walking this back somewhat, though the details of his agreement with Democrats have sparked a new wave of political controversy.
While Trump travelled to Florida, Schumer appeared on the Senate floor to discuss his meeting last night at the White House. Before he got started, Schumer was recorded while he talked to a colleague about his positive outlook on the current situation.
“He likes us! He likes me, anyway,” said Schumer. “Here’s what I told him. I said, Mr. President, you’re much better off if you can sometimes step right, and sometimes step left. If you have to step just in one direction, you’re boxed. He gets that.”
Schumer also defended the statement he and Nancy Pelosi released last night, and he also hinted that Congressional Democrats will soon have a chance to become more productive.
