    Schumer withdraws offer on Trump's wall

    Schumer withdraws offer on Trump's wall

    Republicans aligned with Trump are unlikely to go for any bill that does not offer a major boost in border wall funding.

    Chuck Schumer is taking his big spending boost for Donald Trump’s border wall off the table.

    The Senate minority leader, through an aide, informed the White House on Monday that he was retracting the offer he made last week to give Trump well north of the $1.6 billion in wall funding Trump had asked for this year, according to two Democrats. And now they say Trump will simply not get a better deal than that on his signature campaign promise.


    Schumer “took it off,” said Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, the No. 2 Senate Democrat. “He called the White House yesterday and said it’s over.”

    In the now-famous cheeseburger summit last Friday with Trump, Schumer offered a large increase in border wall spending as a condition for a broader deal to help Dreamers. But after that offer was rebuffed — prompting the three-day government shutdown — the president has now “missed an opportunity to get the wall,” one Democratic aide said.


    Some key Republicans — including Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, a key GOP immigration negotiator — had already considered using the promise of border wall funding totaling more than $1.6 billion to lure more conservative votes. A Dreamer plan written by a bipartisan group of six senators, including Flake, had included Trump’s $1.6 billion request as part of a broader, $2.7 billion border security package.

    “Sen. Schumer’s already indicated that he would go for more. Republicans will go for more,” Flake said. “It’s just how much more we can get from the Democrats.”


    Republicans aligned with Trump are unlikely to go for any bill that does not offer a major boost in border wall funding, given the president’s strong feelings about the issue. Moreover, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said he was skeptical of Schumer’s recollection of the meeting and the border wall offer anyway.

    “They claim that some crazy deal was made,” Cotton said of Democrats. “And then when we say no deal was made, they accuse Republicans and the president of reneging.”

    But providing border wall money could also push away more liberal Democrats, who prefer to completely restart negotiations rather than start from any existing bill, even a bipartisan one like the proposal written by Durbin and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).


    “Discussions were had coming up to Friday night are interesting for context,” said Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii). But now, he said, “we start from a blank sheet of paper.”

    Schumer Renegs On His Promise!

    That's the way he portrayed President Trump backing away with commitments he had supposedly made before that deal changed. Sorry Chuck!

    Illegal Aliens are at Senator Schumer's home demonstrating, chanting, holding signs. "SchumerSellout" says one sign. Shouting in Spanish and English.

    They say they are not going to let him sleep till they get their Dream Act passed. They are in offices of democrats and republicans again demanding a clean Dream Act. They acknowledge they are risking arrest.


    TODAY: Immigrant Youth & Progressive Allies Rally and Risk Arrest at Senate Offices, Say: “Promises Aren’t Enough, We Need A Dream Act Now!”


    Over 100 people are in front of @SenSchumer’s house demanding a clean #DreamActNow. Dreamers are already losing their status & we can’t wait for the GOP to keep a promise. This is URGENT — we demand a clean Dream Act NOW!





    @SenSchumer do you hear us? We need a #DreamActNow that does not punish our families. It’s not just us, it’s +11 million families” -Hector







    If Chuck won’t let us Dream, we won’t let him sleep! Powerful chorus at @SenSchumer’s house demanding a clean #DreamActNow!

    “We are not politicians we are activists and it’s our job to demand action... the #Dreamers who are going to lose their status are going to play a short game with disastrous consequences. We will call @SenSchumer everyday!”

    What's the difference?

    $1.6 billion would not have done anything to build a wall.
