Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Tuesday scorched President Donald Trump to his face during a tense Oval Office meeting about funding for the president’s proposed border wall.
After Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi talked about the priorities of the incoming Democratic congressional majority, Trump interrupted her and pointed out that Republicans gained two seats in the Senate this past election.
Schumer then chimed in to point out that the big reason for those gains was Republicans winning in deep-red states where incumbent Democrats faced steep hurdles to reelection.
“When the president brags that he won North Dakota and Indiana, he’s in real trouble,” Schumer joked as Trump stared at him angrily.
“I did!” a defensive Trump replied. “We did win North Dakota and Indiana!”
