Donald Trump Mocks Chuck Schumer’s Tears, by Charlie Spiering.
“Only 109 people out of 325,000 were detained and held for questioning,” [Trump] wrote. “Big problems at airports were caused by Delta computer outage, protesters and the tears of Senator Schumer.”
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer teared up during a press conference on Sunday, calling Trump’s executive order “mean spirited and un-American.” On Monday, he stated his intent to ask for a vote in the Senate to repeal Trump’s order.
Trump did not signal any intention of backing down. Speaking to reporters in the Oval Office on Monday, he dismissed Schumer’s tears as “fake.”
“I noticed that Chuck Schumer yesterday with fake tears, I’m going to ask him who is his acting coach, because I know him very well. I don’t see him as a crier,” Trump said. “If he is, he’s different man. There’s about a 5 percent chance that it was real but I think they were fake tears.”
