Cryin’ Chuck Schumer stated recently, “I do not have confidence in him (James Comey) any longer.” Then acts so indignant. #draintheswamp

Trump, though, remained quiet until a moment ago.
The president used Twitter to hit back at Senator Chuck Schumer for his criticism of the firing.
In the past, Trump has made fun of Schumer for getting emotional. He resurrected those digs tonight when he called him “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer.” He also said that Schumer indicated he had “no confidence” in Comey last fall.
That is true, of course, but Schumer could simultaneously have no confidence in Comey and believe it was wrong to fire him today.
Regardless, Trump ended his tweet with “#draintheswamp.”
