NOT ONE THIN DIME FOR TRUMP'S RACIST WALL
Liberals Blast ‘National Disgrace’ Chuck Schumer for Agreeing to Give Trump $1.6 Billion for Border Wall
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is in hot water after announcing, on behalf of Senate Democrats, he is willing to give President Trump $1.6 billion or more to pay for the border wall. Trump ran and won on the promise Mexico would pay for the wall, which many see as racist.
Most Democrats are opposed to Trump’s border wall – in fact, 57% of all Americans, Gallup found in June, oppose building the wall.
But that didn’t stop the New York Democrat.
CNN Senior Congressional Correspondent Manu Raju reported on Senator Schumer’s remarks via Twitter:
Sen. Chuck Schumer tells reporters at his on-cam presser that Democrats’ position is $1.6 billion for wall funding – far less than the $5 billion Trump wants – but he won’t say if Democrats are shutting the door on anything more, saying he’s not going to negotiate in public.

If we’re fighting over the wall, we’re fighting on Trump’s home turf.
DEMS JUST WON THE HOUSE BIGLY.
Can we fight on our turf now, @SenSchumer? https://t.co/Qvd8XWLQQU

The correct amount of funding for the wall is $0.00. https://t.co/hBZ9kPoyCX

.@SenSchumer‘s team needs to fix this before they start cold e-mailing Latinx outlets for puff pieces again. 😒
Democrats shouldn’t commit a single dollar toward this symbol of racism and xenophobia. https://t.co/pQz4eF3wEy

What a weak, weak show of leadership. Here’s the offer @SenSchumer : Nothing. If Donald Trump can get a check from Mexico, earmarked for the wall, then he can have it, because, as promised, Mexico will pay for it. Until then, we’re moving on. That’s all you need to say. https://t.co/ueIJ1geZCZ

Sen. Chuck Schumer tells reporters at his on-cam presser that he will punch himself in the dick 6 times — far less than the 27 times Trump wants – but he won’t say if Democrats are shutting the door on anything more, saying he’s not going to negotiate in public. https://t.co/YlViF0z3ok
