Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says the Democrats’ caucus within the Senate is unwilling to work with President Donald Trump.
“Trump, instead of doing where his campaign was, which was against both establishments, Democratic and Republican, so there might be some areas of common ground, has moved so far to the right that I don’t see any place we can work with him,” Schumer told The Huffington Post. “He’s not even talking about infrastructure. He’s not talking about trade.”
Schumer told The Huffington Post that he thinks Trump’s rhetoric will help the Democratic Party in the 2018 elections. He claimed, “This bodes very well for 2018. If Trump continues to govern from the hard right, and be the same kind of person who doesn’t tell the truth, who makes it up as he goes along, and we stay united and strong, we could actually take back the Senate.”
