Chuck SchumerChuck Schumer is on a collision course with disaster.

After losing nearly every major political battle with President Trump this year, Schumer is about to drive the Democratic Party off a cliff.

And now, Schumer just gave Trump one demand that will ruin Democrats in the 2020 elections.

When Democrats retook control of the House of Representatives in 2018, they immediately started laying the groundwork to winning control of the Senate and White House in 2020.

Flipping both while holding the House in next year’s elections would give them control over all three aspects of Congress and the executive branch in Washington DC, something they haven’t had since 2009.

But there’s just one massive problem.

Not only do they have to defeat Donald Trump in 2020, they also have to flip several key swing states to retake control of the Senate.

And Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer just made those chances nearly impossible because of one demand he just made of Donald Trump.

Fox News reports, “Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on Tuesday said he’ll ask President Trump to withdraw his request for $5 billion in border wall construction funds, and to instead use that money to battle gun violence and white-supremacist extremism following two deadly mass shootings this month.”

This is a political miscalculation for the ages on the part of Schumer.

He knows that Democrats’ only hope of retaking the Senate lies in winning over swing voters in critical tossup states in 2020.

And coming out against the President’s plans to combat illegal immigration is a great way to alienate a large chunk of voters across the country.

For Schumer, he’s placing party politics and loyalty ahead of realistic political goals.

And it could end up proving to be a disastrous miscalculation for Democrats ahead of the 2020 elections.

“The dual scourges of gun violence and violent white supremacist extremism in this country are a national security threat, plain and simple, and it’s time the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress starting treating them as such,” Schumer said in a pre-written statement regarding his demands.

“Now Republicans and this administration need to put their money where their mouth is when it comes to addressing gun violence and stopping the rise of domestic terrorism, especially stemming from white supremacy.”

The problem is that Schumer doesn’t realize that voters are going to punish Democrats for abandoning all efforts to combat illegal immigration.

And Schumer doesn’t even know it yet.

In his mind, he thinks that Democrats won’t pay any political price for this ultimatum.

But he’s completely wrong.

And not only is he going to endanger the President’s America First agenda, but he’s also going to risk destroying Democrats’ chances at the ballot box in next year’s elections.

“In February, Trump used a national emergency declaration to divert funding from the Pentagon for his long-promised border wall. He took that tack after Congressional Democrats refused to fund the project,” adds Fox News.
