Crenshaw Sets ‘Immature’ Schumer Straight for Mocking Trump: Dems Care Little About Border Crisis

Even though the president halted plans to place tariffs on Mexico after an agreement, top Democratic leaders were harsh on President Donald Trump in response, which has Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) taking notice.

Trump announced late Friday that the tariffs, which would’ve started Monday, would not be placed on Mexico after the two countries’ leaders made a deal in an effort to curb the flow of illegal immigrants from crossing the U.S. southern border.

Following the announcement, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) decided to deliver a sarcastic response to the president.

On what he deemed to be a “historic night,” Schumer seemingly mocked Trump in a tweet, saying that “now that that problem is solved, I’m sure we won’t be hearing any more about it in the future.”

Crenshaw let loose on Schumer for the “immature and deeply cynical reaction to what should be good news.”

The Republican lawmaker said Schumer’s response “demonstrates how little Democrat leadership actually cares about this massive problem on our border.”

This wasn’t the first instance Schumer took aim at Trump over the crisis at the southern border, as he previously claimed Trump was bluffing on the tariff threat and has a “habit of pretending,” as IJR Red previously reported.

Schumer’s past criticism drew a response from the president, as he said Schumer “would rather have our Country fail with drugs & Immigration than give Republicans a win.”

After Trump did call off the tariff due to the immigration agreement, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) also took a swipe at the president.

“Congress will continue to hold the Trump Administration accountable for its failures to address the humanitarian situation at our southern border,” Pelosi said in a statement. She added:

President Trump must stop sabotaging good-faith, constructive, and bipartisan efforts in Congress to address this complex problem in a humane manner that honors and respects our most cherished national values. […] Threats and temper tantrums are no way to negotiate foreign policy.

Although Pelosi claims Trump is failing to address the border crisis, as IJR Red previously reported on, congressional Democrats don’t seem to be offering much in return in regard to border security.

An immigration bill, HR 6, passed in the Democrat-led House this week. However, as Crenshaw and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) previously pointed out, the legislation — which holds a price tag of $34.6 billion — provides millions of illegal immigrants amnesty and gives $0 to border security.

For every American killed by an illegal we should hang a democrat, starting at the bottom with Shummer and Pelosi.

Amazing that Obregon seems more interested in getting the problem fixed than Uncle Chuck. Maybe Trump really should start dumping these asylum seekers on the Upper East Side and see how funny it is.

It appears that a gaggle of morons previously responded to this as it’s so far from true that it appears distinctly Trumpian.
Those wishing to criticize Dems like Pelosi & Schumer are only showing they fear them.
Whether you idiots like it or not doesn’t matter one bit.
Trump is a proven traitor & Criminal many times over as are other republicans in the Senate like Grassley, McConnell, Graham – Their time is coming.
No real American would support Trump or the Republican Party. That’s a fact !
Dems sweep the WH, the Senate & the House 2020.

Democrats always claim to be for the underdog. Today, illegal immigrants. Yesterday, gays and lesbians, always the African-American. Whenever anyone challenges them on policy, racism, homophobia, etc. is raised. The problem with underdogs is that they expand and divide so no rational solution can be found to resolve a problem. Democrats seek power first and they have no other goal. Take immigration, I understand that some form of amnesty may be appropriate. I know that most illegals seek a better life. I understand charity is needed, but charity begins at home. Secure the border first and then figure out what… Read more »
