Chuck Schumer mocks Trump's negotiating skills on 'The Late Show'
On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., was asked what it’s like to negotiate with President Trump. Schumer’s first reaction was to laugh. He then mocked Trump’s negotiating skills, or lack thereof.
As Senate minority leader, part of Schumer’s job is to negotiate with the president, who considers himself a master negotiator, on policy issues. But Schumer’s view of the Trump’s skills aren’t quite as high, to say the least.
“He has two ways of negotiating,” Schumer said. “One, he’ll shake your hand and the next day totally back off. [House Minority Leader] Nancy Pelosi at the White House and I had an agreement with him on DREAMers for border security. He agreed and the next day got pressure from this hard right. He totally backed off. That’s what he does over and over again,” Schumer said.
According to Schumer, Trump’s other method is much more straight to the point.
Schumer explained, “His other way of negotiating is saying, ‘Here’s how I want it. You do it my way or else.’”
