Schumer Statement in Response to President Trump’s Lack of Leadership on DACA and Gun Safety

February 23, 2018
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement in response to President Trump’s lack of leadership on DACA and gun safety:
“It’s clear to everyone but President Trump that it was he who forced the DACA issue when he ended the program. Democrats have been willing to negotiate for months, and have forged several bi-partisan deals, but his refusal to take yes for an answer led to his partisan plan that only got 39 votes. Now he’s headed in the same direction on gun safety. If he continues down this path, his calls for bipartisanship will ring hollow. The president needs to step up and lead.”
