Schumer Rips Trump's Speech: 'He's Got Big Trouble'

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Tuesday that President Donald Trump "talks like a populist, but the way he's been governing is totally the opposite, governing from the hard right."

"He's talked a good game on trade during the campaign, but when he ran in the campaign, he said he would declare China a currency manipulator on the first day of his presidency," the New York Democrat told Wolf Blitzer on CNN. "It's 40 days in, we haven't head a thing, they're backing off."

"Infrastructure. Haven't heard a peep about any plan. Now, they say they're going to do it next year.

"The problem with President Trump is his speeches and the realities are very far apart," Schumer said. "The American people don't want a speech. Heard a lot of those.

"They want action — and the action he's giving them is disjointed. [Trump and his administration] don't know how to really run a government.

"But when he gives them action, he goes to hard right.

"The divergence between the speech-like campaign promises and reality is miles apart," he told Blitzer. "That's why he had a rough 40 days — and he will have a rough rest of his term until his reality catches up with the speeches.

"He's got big trouble."
