The absolute arrogance of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer lecturing President Trump on how he should handle his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday.
Schumer and the rest of the obstructionist Democrats can’t stand it that President Trump is embarking on what might very well be peace in a region that has been fraught with tension and the threat of nuclear war for decades.
The president is making history, and after months of the Democrats mocking Trump and saying he will cause a nuclear war, now they are desperate to be part of the negotiations, and Trump will not allow it.
President Trump lashed out at Schumer Friday, saying that he was offering unneeded advice in advance of the summit with Kim Jong Un.
Trump tweeted in the morning that President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats did “NOTHING about North Korea, and now weak on Crime, High Tax Schumer is telling me what to do at the Summit the Dems could never set up.”
“Schumer failed with North Korea and Iran, we don’t need his advice!” Trump concluded.
Obama, Schumer and Pelosi did NOTHING about North Korea, and now weak on Crime, High Tax Schumer is telling me what to do at the Summit the Dems could never set up. Schumer failed with North Korea and Iran, we don’t need his advice!

The Senate’s top Democrats insisted in a letter Monday to President Trump that any deal with North Korea must completely dismantle Pyongyang’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs permanently and that the White House must loop Congress in on its plans before negotiations begin.
“Any deal that explicitly or implicitly gives North Korea sanctions relief for anything other than the verifiable performance of its obligations to dismantle its nuclear and missile arsenal is a bad deal,” seven Democratic senators, including Chuck Schumer, warned in a letter to Trump this week.
The letter also insisted on “anywhere, anytime” inspections of suspected North Korean nuclear sites, as well as those linked to its chemical and biological warfare programs.
Schumer and several ranking Democrats issued a list of conditions pressing the president to maintain a tough and unsparing stance with Kim Jong Un and with his ally China to ensure that the talks achieve “full, complete and verifiable denuclearization of North Korea” — and nothing less.
Like I said, the arrogance of Chuck Schumer and the other Democrats thinking they can dictate to President Trump how to handle the negotiations when they mocked him early on in the process.
Regardless of the outcome, with the goal being complete denuclearization, President Trump has already accomplished more than Obama, Clinton and the Bushes so they can all sit back and watch Donald Trump do what they could not – make America and the world great again.
