    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on Thursday that President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin shouldn't hold additional one-on-one meetings until the administration details what happened during Monday's Helsinki summit. “Until we know what happened at that two hour meeting in Helsinki, the president should have no more one-on-one interactions with Putin. In the United States, in Russia, or anywhere else," Schumer said in a statement. Talk of a second meeting comes days after the two leaders met one-on-one for two hours in Helsinki. Trump sparked widespread backlash during a press conference after the meeting by refusing to...

    <p>But promoting socialism, sky-high taxes, and open borders is probably not going to help them trounce the GOP in November. The activist base of the Democratic party is lurching left fast enough that everyone should pay attention. Activists matter because their turnout in low-turnout primaries and caucuses almost propelled leftist Bernie Sanders to victory over Hillary Clinton in 2016. Last month, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unseated New York congressman Joe Crowley, the No. 4 ranking House Democrat in a low-turnout primary. She benefited from organizing support from the Democratic Socialists of America. Leftists have also upset establishment Democrats in statewide primaries for governor in Colorado and Maryland.</p>

    Anthea Butler Democrats will lose in 2018 if they don't shut up about civility and shout about our democracy dying Rejoice, Republicans, you will have another majority on your hands, because Democratic messaging for the 2018 election cycle is nonexistent. Harsh? Not even. The unimaginative leaders of the Democratic Party — Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez — have been playing nice and talking about the virtues of "civility," while the Republican Party has been accusing Democrats of backing Communism and supporting the violent street gang MS-13.

    Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer on Friday called on President Trump to cancel his summit with Russian President Vladi­mir Putin in the wake 12 Russian intelligence officers being charged with conspiring to hack Democrats during the 2016 presidential campaign. “Glad-handing with Vladimir Putin on the heels of these indictments would be an insult to our democracy,” Schumer (N.Y.) said in a statement less than an hour after Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein detailed the new charges at a midday news conference. Trump is scheduled to meet with Putin on Monday in Helsinki. During a joint news conference Friday...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles E.

Mr. Schumer, New York Democrat, said senators should no longer accept general promises of fealty to precedent, and will instead demand...

    Maxine Waters is a corrupt, abusive politician who cares nothing for the truth. Two weeks ago, she encouraged her far-left crowd of admirers to harass Trump officials in public places. Harassments easily become violent. She knows that and so do the Democrats claiming she didn’t encourage violence. Even if she didn’t, what right do these people have to urge abuse of political opponents in restaurants, gas stations, the public square, especially when they are on their own time, with their families? Referencing the harassment of Sarah Sanders, Kristjen Nielsen, and others, she said: “I want to tell you, these members...

    Since Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement last week, Democrats have argued President Trump should wait until after the 2018 midterm elections to nominate his replacement. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has been leading this charge. Chuck Schumer ✔@SenSchumer If GOP were consistent, they would wait to consider Justice Kennedy’s successor until after the midterm elections. Time & again Ldr McConnell claimed the American ppl should have a voice in deciding the next SCOTUS Justice. That was in Feb of an election year.

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y, on Monday slammed federal judge Amy Coney Barrett, one of the front-runners to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court, by calling her an “activist judge” who could put abortion rights and the Affordable Care Act at risk. “Amy Coney Barrett is a judge on the Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit & on @realDonaldTrump’s pre-approved list for SCOTUS. She passed his ‘litmus test’ on overturning Roe v. Wade & striking down the ACA. Here’s where she stands on Americans' big issues,” Schumer said in a series of tweets Monday. “Barrett attacked the...

    The New York Times editorial board is calling on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and her top two deputies to step aside and allow younger Democratic members to lead the caucus. The Times takes aim at Pelosi, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., and Democratic Assistant Leader Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., criticizing the trio for maintaining their power rather than preparing the next generation. "For too long, this regime has clung to power at the expense of future leaders," the Times editorial board writes. "Neither of Ms. Pelosi’s two chief deputies, Steny Hoyer, the party whip, and Jim Clyburn, the...

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said Sunday she was surprised to see Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) criticize her for advocating to publicly confront Trump Cabinet officials, but noted that political leaders "will do anything that they think is necessary to protect their leadership.” “You know, I was surprised at Chuck Schumer, you know reached into the other house to do that,” Waters said when asked by MSNBC host Joy Reid if she was surprised to see leaders in her own party criticizing her. “I’ve not quite seen that done before. But one of the things I recognize, being an...

    In 1836, at the Young Men’s Lyceum in Springfield, Illinois, a 28-year-old lawyer named Abraham Lincoln delivered one of his finest addresses. Lincoln condemned the sharp increase of mobs in America, which had exploded in number as the debate over slavery and regional animosity intensified. “Accounts of outrages committed by mobs, form the every-day news of the times,” Lincoln said. Many of these mobs had turned violent and subverted the law. They were undermining free government. Calls for civility are sometimes vapid excuses to shut down political dissent. But what’s occurring now in America is not just heated debate at...

    President Donald Trump attacked Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Sunday, saying the New York Democrat was wrong when he criticized the president's historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as "all hat and no cattle." "Thank you Chuck, but are you sure you got that right? No more nuclear testing or rockets flying all over the place, blew up launch sites," the president wrote on Twitter. "Hostages already back, hero remains coming home & much more!" Schumer, in a speech on the Senate floor on Wednesday, questioned just what the U.S. gained from the summit. “The summit...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) mangled a famous Texas saying while delivering a speech on the Senate floor Wednesday so badly that he unintentionally praised President Donald Trump for the outcome of the Singapore Summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. For generations, Texans have referred to a person who talks big but is unable to deliver as someone who is “all hat and no cattle.” New York’s left-wing “urban cowboy” reversed the words when he attempted to deliver what he intended to be a stinging rebuke of Trump’s historic accomplishments in Singapore on Tuesday. “This summit was much...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday criticized a joint diplomatic statement released a few hours before from President Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un as lacking detail and giving Kim too much room to back out. Schumer said by meeting with Kim, Trump has given “a brutal and repressive dictatorship the international legitimacy it has long craved.” “It is best not to dive in head first and hope for the best but rather to work slowly, transparently and verifiably to build trust and lock in concessions,” Schumer warned. Schumer argued the agreement lacks detail on achieving...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer railed against President Trump’s harsh rhetoric towards violent street gang MS-13 Wednesday; taking the President’s comments out of context and equating violent offenders to “our great grandparents.” The President was responding to a California lawmaker’s complaint that local officials were unable to notify ICE officials of MS-13 gang members detained in county jails; saying federal authorities were working to bypass the “ridiculous” sanctuary city policies and deport “animal” criminals from the United States. Schumer slammed the President’s harsh rhetoric on social media within hours, saying “When all of our great-great-grandparents came to America they weren’t...

    The Republican Party made clear on Tuesday that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s comments on the violent MS-13 gang will haunt Democrats until the midterm elections. President Trump recently prompted an angry backlash by members of the media and his political opponents by referring to MS-13 members as “animals,” but the Republican Party is betting that American voters are on his side. Its new campaign ad titled “Democrats’ Midterm Message? MS-13 killers aren’t so bad” tallied over 52,000 views in less than six hours. “When the president of the United States says these aren’t people, these are animals, you have...

    Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) is ripping the White House over high gas prices, arguing President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal is putting a pinch on middle class wallets. “According to energy analysts and experts, President Trump’s reckless decision to pull out of the Iran deal has led to higher oil prices,” Schumer said at a press conference held at an Exxon filling station on Capitol Hill, where a gallon of regular costs $3.89. “These higher oil prices are translating directly to soaring gas prices, something we know disproportionately hurts middle- and lower-income people,” Schumer...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Saturday said Republican lawmakers’ efforts to uncover the identity of an FBI informant in order to obstruct special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation comes close to "crossing a legal line." Schumer was tweeting his support of a statement from the Senate Intelligence Committee's top Democrat, Mark Warner (Va.), who warned Republican lawmakers against exposing the identity of the informant who gave investigators information about possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Warner said in a separate Twitter thread on Friday, "It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members...
