During a speech on the Senate floor on Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that it is in everyones interest to keep the president away from the appropriations process and avoid another Trump shutdown before Christmas.
Schumer said, I believe, left to our own devices, Congress could work through the final issues and make sure the government stays open. However, a report came out yesterday suggesting President Trump may refuse to sign any funding agreement without securing funding for his border wall first.
I hope cooler heads will prevail. I believe they will. But Ive warned President Trump and my Republican colleagues, the last Trump shutdown was terrible for the American people and terrible for Republicans. It is in all of our interests to keep the president away from the appropriations process and avoid another Trump shutdown before Christmas.

Screw you chuckie. Get the balls and write a really budget.
I wonder what his Citibank handlers think of his remarks?
And all those jobs created my the new trade agreement that replaces NAFTA?
This is WAR, you should VETO everything that comes down the pike, force CONgress to get a 2/3rds majority to do ANYTHING
Hey Chuck Schumer - most of us will NEVER accept a democrat as our President - ever again.
If one is elected we need to start the resistance AND impeachment on DAY ONE. Just like you did...
The deplorables will fight back.
We’ve been fools. That’s over. One on your team Chuck gets elected and we fight tooth and nail just like you creeps did when you lost an election.
WE don’t decide that.
WE elect Rs who, even if they talk the Trumpiest of Trump talk, will fold like old metal chairs once they’re elected.
that SUCKS but so far it’s been true.
Prolly because deep state has stuff on them and lets them know right away
I hope some illegals run over Chuckles the New York clown.
APPROPRIATIONS PROCESS? That is pathetic.
We have lived on continuing resolutions for 20+ years. There is not a budget.
The process is a bunch of drunk men cutting and pasting lines and paragraphs of text out of old bills.
Hopefully in the second term he will wield the veto more and make them write a budget and have a process. An open transparent process.
Does anybody on the planet believe that if it was bad for Republicans that Chucky would be trying to avoid it? Why would he do that? Because he doesn’t want to hurt Republicans? OK. Sure. That’s it.
Have heart - lots of our people have been growing backbones in the last few years.
I hope cooler heads will prevail.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Thats a laugh, as if Schumer’s is cool. As a matter of fact Schumer has the hottest head of anyone.
President Trump is going to play Schumer like a fiddle.
The one program I want shut down is the importation of Muslims into this country.We are bringing them here at an alarming rate.
Why are we not bringing in Christians or at least Westerners who have a semblance of civilization in them.
so the Dems plan to shut down Government and blame it on Trump , Hmm didn’t they try that already and it backfired
America really needs to fire all anti-constitution, socialist zealots from elected office....Chuck....
Ahhhh...and here we see where the important matter lies...Trump might cut off their gravy train.
Yea because he’s the President...F*CK you schmer!!! What an *SSHOL*!
Until 1974, the President had the power of Impoundment to reign in a runaway House. It was stripped during the Nixon trials, but maybe challenging that knee-jerk reaction and restoring that Presidential right is a fight we should be having?
