TRUMP'S TOUGH TALK: The President Tells Schumer 'NO WALL, NO DACA'

President Trump pushed back against Chuck Schumer’s recent announcement that a border wall was “off the table” during immigration negotiations with the GOP, saying there can be no deal on DACA without constructing a physical barrier along the US-Mexico border.

The Commander-in-Chief called out “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer” on social media Tuesday night, blasting the Senate Minority Leader over his failed government shutdown and warning the Democratic that there can be no immigration deal without his signature “border wall.”

“Cryin’ Chuck Schumer fully understands, especially after his humiliating defeat, that if there is no Wall, there is no DACA. We must have safety and security, together with a strong Military, for our great people!” Trump tweeted.

The President’s comments come just hours after Schumer publicly announced he was “removing” the border wall from any negotiations aimed at reaching a deal on DACA before the February deadline.

Schumer’s top aide told Fox News this week the Senate Minority Leader “withdrew” his initial offer made to the President a day before the federal government shutdown, which reportedly included a “boost” for border security, including the wall.
