Senate Minority Chuck Schumer (D-NY) or “Cryin’ Chuck” is throwing yet another tantrum while exposing his Trump derangement syndrome.

On Tuesday, he told President Trump to stay away from negotiations on a border security bill, and let Congress handle it. (Video Below)

While speaking to reporters, Schumer said, “We’ve come to big agreements before, for example, on budgets and Russian sanctions.”

“What was the common theme? When the president stays out of the negotiations, we almost always succeed. When he mixes in, it’s a formula for failure,” he continued.

“So I’d ask President Trump, let Congress deal with it on its own,” he added.

The House and Senate have less than three weeks to negotiate a bill to fix border security. President Trump, who agreed to end the 35-day government shutdown so these talks could begin, is hoping negotiators can agree to spend some money on new border wall. (Video Below)

If negotiators fail to agree to any new wall, President Trump has threatened to declare a national emergency to start building parts of the wall on the southern U.S. border. Further, he won’t sign any final agreement that Congress negotiates without wall funding, which could start another shutdown.

Schumer said of the shutdown, “I hope this serves as a lesson to President Trump and all of my Republican colleagues: no more shutdown. President Trump touched a hot, hot stove, and hopefully he won’t do it again.” (Video Below)

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) took note of Schumer’s comments and hit back on Twitter Tuesday evening.

Graham wrote, “Last time I checked, the President of the United States is a stakeholder in the legislative process. To suggest he ‘stay out’ is a sure way for failure.”

He continued, “I suggest my Democratic colleagues make a good faith effort to solve this problem before it is too late. * TPS program is going to be canceled unless reformed. * DACA population won’t get legal status unless we address some of the causes of a broken immigration system.”

The South Carolina Senator concluded, “To do otherwise would be to encourage more illegal immigration. President @realDonaldTrump has been more than reasonable. The ball is now in the Democrats’ court.”
