Donald Trump Tweets ‘Cryin’ Chuck Schumer’ After Schumer Withdraws Border Wall Funding & DACA Deal

Another mature reaction from the President.

During his 2016 election campaign, Trump claimed Mexico would pay to build his wall along the southwestern border of the United States. Mexico repeatedly rejects that claim.

As a result, Trump asked Congress for U.S. taxpayer funds to build his border wall. Conservative estimates put the cost at more than $21 billion. The majority of Americans oppose building the wall.

With Democrats and many Republicans favoring more effective border enforcement tools than Trump’s border wall, it becomes a major roadblock in immigration reform and budget negotiations.

Democrats seek to protect about 700,000 Dreamers after Trump announced the end of the Obama administration’s DACA program in September. The program, begun in 2012, gave qualified Dreamers brought to the United States as children temporary protection from deportation with the ability to study and work in the United States.

Meanwhile, President Trump was not the only one to react on Twitter.
