Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is making another jab at President Trump as he claimed that the President “didn’t play much of a role” in budget negotiations.

The proposed bill is one the Democrats in a Congress are gloating over, even though President Trump is actually in favor of the government shutdown in September, which Schumer’s budget is trying to prevent.

Schumer in particular is making very pointed comments about his efforts with the bill.

Breitbart reports:

“Our Republican colleagues I give them a lot of credit — Mitch McConnell — we worked very well together — Leader Pelosi, Speaker Ryan as well,” Schumer said, adding the names of the Democrats and Republicans in both chambers responsible for leading on appropriations.

“We all worked as a team,” Schumer said. “And we came up with a very good solution for the people here.

But it shows we Democrats want to work with our Republican colleagues,” Schumer said. “And when they work with us, it’s great.”

Schumer’s claims are ultimately completely unfounded, as President Trump is actually in favor of shutting down the government in September to reevaluate the system, and the budget proposal does not allow for that.

Schumer is also claiming President Trump did not offer much aid in a bill that does not hold the best interests of the American people first.

Breitbart reports:

“Our country needs a good ‘shutdown’ in September to fix mess!” he wrote on Twitter.

Trump explained that part of the reason for Republican compromises in the budget was that he needed enough Democrat votes for it to meet the 60-vote threshold in the Senate.

“The reason for the plan negotiated between the Republicans and Democrats is that we need 60 votes in the Senate which are not there!” he wrote.

But Trump also urged voters to give him a 60-vote majority in the Senate to help pass his agenda.

Schumer added in that President Trump didn’t give positive feedback, but in reality he challenged the negative efforts the Democratic Party was attempting to squeeze into the budget, like funding Planned Parenthood through September.

Breitbart reports:

“Unfortunately the president did not play much of a role — much of a positive role — in these budget negotiations, but hopefully, that may change because the results have been so good and so fine,” Schumer said.

By the end of September, a new funding bill will have to be crafted to avoid a government shutdown. That budget will be the first originated from the Trump White House.

Overall, Schumer remains to be a hindrance towards progress in Congress, as his constant claims of the inefficiency of the new administration are met with deaf ears.
