Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has worked consistently throughout the past year to undermine President Trump.
Between failed negotiations concerning DACA to supporting a hostile anti-Trump political environment and blocking Trump’s agenda, Schumer has been on a downward spiral all year.
And now, he is getting on Trump’s last nerve.
President Trump challenged Schumer after he failed to negotiate a better DACA deal, ultimately leading to a government shutdown.
In a tweet, Trump claimed Schumer’s inconsistencies as a Senator were causing many problems for the nation- especially concerning his constant sabotage of the Republican Party’s efforts.
Cryin’ Chuck Schumer fully understands, especially after his humiliating defeat, that if there is no Wall, there is no DACA. We must have safety and security, together with a strong Military, for our great people!

Throughout President Trump’s first year, Chuck Schumer worked to consistently undermine the President, often blocking legislation and refusing to work with the Executive Office in general.
And Trump has had enough.
“Cryin’ Chuck Schumer fully understands, especially after his humiliating defeat, that if there is no Wall, there is no DACA,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Tuesday night. “We must have safety and security, together with a strong Military, for our great people!”
Schumer’s political days may soon be numbered.
Schumer’s biggest mistake was playing into the hands of liberals who claimed to be part of a “resistance” against Trump.
But his consistent failures to pass legislation and work hand in hand with the Executive Office will certainly be career ending for the Democrat.
Schumer’s attempts at sabotaging the administration has hindered any major legislation from being passed.
The New York Post reported:
Chuck Schumer started a government shutdown he couldn’t finish.
The New York Democrat, among the shrewdest operators in national politics, stumbled badly because he succumbed to the siren song of the anti-Trump Resistance. He believed any charge could be made to stick to President Trump, no matter how implausible, and chose the dictates of an inflamed Democratic base over common sense.
His embarrassing climbdown after a short, mostly weekend shutdown shows the limits of the Resistance. Yes, an anti-Trump midterm wave appears to be building and Democratic activists — marching in the streets by the thousands and badgering Republicans at town-hall meetings — are energized. But this doesn’t mean that Democrats can act with impunity as long as they are fighting under an anti-Trump banner.
Schumer sought to attach an extraneous matter, an amnesty for so-called Dreamers, on a must-pass government funding bill and when Democrats inevitably didn’t get what they wanted, blame Trump for the ensuing government shutdown. This effort depended on gravity-defying spin that proved sustainable for less than three days.
The fact is that the Republican House handily passed a bill to keep the government open, with the support of the Republican president. Almost every Republican in the Senate voted to pass that bill through the upper chamber — where it required a supermajority of 60 votes, and therefore some Democratic ayes — while almost every Democrat in the Senate opposed it. Republican leaders said they didn’t want a shutdown and urged Democrats not to force one.
Do you believe Chuck Schumer is still a legitimate authority in the government?
