ㅤ”‘I don’t agree with President Trump on a whole lot, but today I want to give him a big pat on the back,’ Schumer said in a speech on the Senate floor. ‘He is doing the right thing when it comes to China.’
ㅤ’Unfortunately, previous Presidents, Democrat and Republican, just stood by as China did what it did to us. President Trump is exactly right,’ he continued.”

ㅤWHITE HOUSE SPOKESMAN: SCHUMER ‘NEVER MADE A REAL OFFER’ FOR TRUMP’S BORDER WALL ㅤ”‘What Schumer offered the President was an authorization for wall funding. Not an appropriation. And to be honest, that’s D.C. swamp speak for ‘nothing’s ever going to happen.’ So the senator is being disingenuous about what he truly offered the President, just like he’s being disingenuous in blaming someone else for the Schumer shutdown.'”

ㅤInstead, the Senate is now set to vote at noon on Monday to end debate on a measure that would fund the government through Feb. 8.
ㅤIt’s not clear there will be 60 votes to end debate, however, given opposition from Senate Democrats to the measure. Sixty votes are needed on the procedural vote.”

ㅤ”Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., have backed off a direct threat to vote against the January 19 spending bill if it excludes the immigration language [Dreamers], in part because the standalone bipartisan deal is in the works.
ㅤ’We Democrats are hopeful we can get this all done,’ Schumer said Thursday when asked if he would oppose a spending bill without Dreamer language. ‘We’ve laid out a number of things we believe have to be in the bill and we’ve had very serious discussions with Republican leadership in those areas. Now there will be staff discussions in those areas to try to get those things done.’
ㅤInstead of insisting the immigration bill be completed by Jan. 19, Schumer called it a ‘goal.'”

ㅤIn this latest Trump admin fiasco, I believe Schumer’s response is moderate and reasonable. I particularly like his recommendation that because collusion is what the DP has been trying to prove from the start, that all ongoing investigations be stopped, including Mueller’s. If articles of impeachment are necessary, then get on with it.
ㅤBut as typical of CNN, it doesn’t consider the most important opinion, this time being the opinion of the Senate minority leader, to be front page news. CNN isn’t journalism. It’s a tabloid obsessed with scandals.
