Twitter Rips Schumer, Dems for Caving on Deal to End Shutdown: Worse ‘Negotiator… Than Trump’
By a vote 81-18, the Senate voted to move forward with a 17-day bill to fund the government — a move likely to end the government shutdown.
Essentially, all parties involved kicked the can down the road. And the early read on the deal is that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) gave in to his counterpart, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). (And to President Donald Trump, for that matter.)
Progressive Twitter was irate. Conservative Twitter was ecstatic. The one thing they agreed on, Chuck Schumer caved. Here’s a sampling of the social media reaction.
Trump world and WH sources dancing in end zone: “Trump wins again… “ Schumer and Dems “caved… gambled and lost.”
