Schumer’s attempt to mock Trump’s Mexico deal couldn’t have gone worse: ‘Not a good look, Chuck’

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer set himself up for a round of mockery after his sarcastic slam of President Donald Trump’s agreement with Mexico.

The New York Democrat sneered at the president’s historic immigration deal with Mexico, quoting Trump’s announcement in a tweet of his own that was meant to ridicule the move that averted the tariffs against Mexico which would have gone into effect Monday.

“This is an historic night!” Schumer wrote on Friday in response to the president’s tweet. “Now that that problem is solved, I’m sure we won’t be hearing any more about it in the future.”

But Schumer’s attempted jab boomeranged back as many noted how the Democrat actually admitted there was a problem to begin with.

Just two days before Trump’s deal in which he convinced Mexico to agree to keep all migrants in their country until their U.S. court hearings, Schumer was accusing the president of bluffing.

Trump scored his victory despite criticism and doubts from Democrats, establishment Republicans and the left with the mainstream media daily reminding Americans how the president would fail and have to backtrack over his tariff threats.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi condemned Trump’s actions.

While many remained silent after the deal was announced others, like Florida Sen. Marco Rubio predicted that it was “going to be very hard” for some in the media to “give @POTUS credit for this.”

In fact, the petulant media was not about to give Trump any credit.

But the sour grapes mentality from the left, epitomized by Schumer’s childish swipe at the president, only served to prove Trump has been right about the biased treatment he is given and the Democrats’ blatant agenda to fight him at every turn.
