Many conservatives are not happy with the new spending bill Congress rolled out. The left is.
Now, we might have an answer. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said at a press conference that President Trump “did not play much of a role” in the budget negotiations.
Well, no sh*t Sherlock. We could see that from a mile away.
Schumer, however, praised others on both sides of the aisle for their efforts in the budget deal. Aside from an increase in military spending and an increase in funding for some aspects of border security, the deal did not contain much of what the president has said are his priorities, including replacing Obamacare, defunding Planned Parenthood, and cutting spending on wasteful programs in the arts and those focused on climate change.
“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.
“We all worked as a team. 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. And when they work with us, it’s great.
“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.”
What do you think? Could you tell Trump didn’t play much of a role in the budget plan?
