Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., claimed President Donald Trump has made little headway with Congress on issues of his agenda because "he doesn't consult us at all," the Washington Times reported on Sunday.

After taking office, Schumer said Trump administration officials have "gone at it alone," Schumer told Fox News Sunday.

"On the issues so far — taxes and health care — he doesn't consult us at all," Schumer said. "He puts together a plan that is very hard right, special interest (and) wealth-oriented and says the way to be bipartisan is to just support his plan. That's not the way America works."

Earlier on Sunday Trump tweeted the Democratic party was the "party of obstruction." And, at a rally the president held on Saturday in Harrisburg, Pa., heralding his first 100 days in office, he called Schumer a "poor leader" who was "weak on crime and wants to raise your taxes through the roof."

"Known him a long time, and he's leading the Democrats to doom," Trump also said at the rally.

Schumer responded to Trump's remarks, saying "name-calling doesn't work."

"Let's look at values. Let's look at issues," he said. "I'd say the president's first hundred days have hardly been a success. He's broken promises to the working people of America, unfulfilled others."

"He campaigned as a populist against the Democratic and Republican establishments. But, he's governing like someone from the hard right, wealthy special interest," Schumer added.
