Chuck Schumer is desperate. You can smell it on him from miles away. He knows he must stop Trump before it is too late.
This is the last chance for Chuck to try to brand Trump ahead of the next round of elections.
Chuck is watching all the other efforts by the Democrats and their pals in the media to take down Trump fall flat.
Even Bob Mueller is on the ropes as his witch hunt falls apart before the country’s eyes.
But Chuck is simply overmatched and the fool decided to make his last stand on the economy.
Predictably, he fell flat on his face and TRump cleaned his clock. From the New York Post:
Sen. Chuck Schumer slammed President Trump on Wednesday for soaring gas prices — blaming his decision to reimpose sanctions on Iran for higher costs that he said will burn away the GOP tax cut.
“Gas prices will roughly cancel out the 2018 consumption boost from the tax cuts,” Schumer said at an Exxon gas station on Capitol Hill.
“That’s right, whatever meager benefit working families may have seen from Trump’s tax scam for the rich has been wiped out by the gas prices that President Trump is responsible for.”
Trump’s reply sent the hapless Schumer scurrying back to New York city with his tail between his legs.
From The Hill:
President Trump in an early morning interview with Fox News said the U.S. is “respected” again, pointing to the economy and unemployment rate.
“We’re doing a great job. Our country is coming back. Our country is respected again,” Trump said. “What we’re doing over there is just another sign of it.”
“You look at the economy, you look at jobs, lowest employment rate in many, many – in decades. Lowest black unemployment in history, lowest Hispanic unemployment in history, lowest women unemployment in 19 years,” the president added.
“Our country is doing well and we are respected again. And we’re doing incredible trade deals which haven’t been negotiated for 25 years.”
Correct. Good luck running against a booming economy, Chuck.
