President Donald Trump took some time during his visit to England on Tuesday night to attack Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, calling him a "creep."

Trump apparently took issue with Schumer's comments earlier in the day that suggested he might be bluffing in his pledge to place tariffs on Mexican goods until Mexico helps stop the flow of migrants into the United States.

Trump wrote

"Can you imagine Cryin' Chuck Schumer saying out loud, for all to hear, that I am bluffing with respect to putting Tariffs on Mexico. What a Creep. He would rather have our Country fail with drugs & Immigration than give Republicans a win. But he gave Mexico bad advice, no bluff!"

Earlier Tuesday, Schumer wondered aloud if Trump was actually serious with his tariff threat.

"Trump has a habit of talking tough and then retreating," Schumer said.

Republican senators told White House officials the tariff plan might not have support from all GOP lawmakers.
