Chuck Schumer’s plan to oust Donald Trump involves obstruction, delays, and inventing fake scandals.
The Democrat leader in the Senate put this plan in motion from the first day of Donald Trump’s Presidency.
But Schumer suffered a major defeat when he lost a fight to the last person he ever expected.
Florida Senator Rick Scott is one of the sneakiest RINOs in Washington.
As Florida Governor, Scott signed massive gun control into law that allowed the police to kick down doors and take away firearms from law abiding citizens.
He also raised the age to 21 to purchase a standard rifle and mandated a three-day waiting period when purchasing firearms.
Scott signed these measures after anti-gun fanatics like former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg – and other left-wing groups – enlisted children to press the case for gutting the Second Amendment as a form of emotional blackmail after the tragic shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Because of this betrayal, Scott finished with fewer votes in his Senate race – despite being far more well-known and owning an unlimited war chest due to his personal wealth – than pro-Trump conservative Congressman Ron DeSantis in his Gubernatorial victory.
Since Scott alienated a chunk of the conservative base with alarming anti-gun actions, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer figured he had another John McCain on his hands.
Schumer and the Democrats figured they could drive a wedge between Scott and President Trump on a disaster relief bill.
Senate Republicans want to pass legislation that gives federal money to areas affected by natural disasters, but Democrats are holding up the bill.
Schumer and his allies are demanding Republicans stuff the bill with welfare money beyond the $600 million already included for Puerto Rico.
Democrats are holding this bill up so they can paint Trump as a heartless racist out to stick it to Puerto Ricans.
They believe this will alienate Florida’s substantial Puerto Rican population and hand the Sunshine State’s 29 Electoral College votes to the Democrat nominee in 2020, making it nearly impossible for President Trump to win re-election.
Because of Scott’s narrower than expected win in 2018 and his past willingness to sell out conservatives, Schumer figured Scott would run to the Democrats to support them in this standoff with the President.
But that’s not what happened.
Scott felt pressure at home from conservatives due to his anti-gun betrayal and stood with President Trump against the Democrats schemes.
However, even though Scott took one good vote, conservatives still cannot trust him.
As Governor of Florida, he was well known as a campaign trail conservative who quickly moved left once in office.
On big issues like immigration, gun control, abortion, and supporting President Trump, Scott will try to move as far left as possible.
