Schumer Responds to Trump Blaming Democrats: ‘They Never Reached Out to Us’

Senator Chuck Schumer reacted on CNN earlier tonight to President Trump saying that Democrats like him and Nancy Pelosi were the real losers today because now they “own” Obamacare.

The president said once Obamacare “explodes,” Democrats will come to him to work on a fix.

Schumer told Wolf Blitzer, “They never reached out to us, they never talked to us, they never said ‘How can we work together to make it better?'”

He said that he’s willing to work with Trump on health care, but they have to “take repeal off the table.”

At one point Schumer said that Trump “proved to be incompetent” in all of this.
