Chuck Schumer has drawn a red line.
He is demanding amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants and he is willing to hold the military hostage.
And Schumer just let it slip which Republican he considers his biggest enemy.
Schumer is furious that Donald Trump didn’t immediately accept the Democrats demands of amnesty in exchange for a fig leaf of reforms.
In a private conversation with President Trump at a ceremony honoring former Senator Bob Dole, Schumer yelled at Trump over Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton participating in the negotiations.
Cotton holds pro-American immigration views and Schumer claimed the Democrats would not negotiate with Trump as long as Cotton was in the room.
They were also furious Cotton defended President Trump after Senator Dick Durbin tried to smear Trump as a racist.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told President Donald Trump this week that there will be no deal on Dreamers if hard-line conservative GOP Sen. Tom Cotton is involved, according to several congressional sources.
Schumer also told the president that he was not being well-served by White House staffers during negotiations over the fate of 700,000 young immigrants who face potential deportation if no deal is reached to protect them…
… For a number of Senate Democrats, Cotton — brash, conservative and largely uninterested in compromise — is the personification of what is wrong with the GOP right now.
Democrats are upset that Cotton and Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) — but particularly Cotton — backed the president’s assertion that he did not use racist language during the Jan. 11 meeting. Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois said that Trump said he did not want immigrants from “shithole countries” like Haiti, El Salvador or nations in Africa, but asked why there couldn’t be more immigrants from Norway.
Though GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham told another Republican senator that Durbin’s version of events was “basically accurate,” the South Carolina senator has declined to publicly confirm that Trump used that phrase. Cotton and Perdue denied it, Cotton doing so in very clear terms.
“I didn’t hear it, and I was sitting no further away from Donald Trump than Dick Durbin was,” Cotton said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “And I know what Dick Durbin has said about the president’s repeated statements is incorrect.”
Democrats were upset that Cotton tried to redirect the controversy toward Durbin. They want to banish Cotton from any discussions about a Dreamers deal, arguing that he is too toxic to be involved.”
Democrats are trying to blackmail Trump into accepting amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.
Once they are granted citizenship, these so-called “DREAMers” will quickly be registered to vote and become Democrats.
Trump is standing in the way of this catastrophe and Schumer is furious he is being aided by Senator Cotton.
