Yesterday, the Senate’s leading Democrat Chuck Schumer held a press conference over Pres. Donald Trump’s Executive Order banning Syrian refugees and travelers from other majority-Muslim countries. The press conference, just one of many held by Democrats yesterday to protest Trump’s decision, made headlines for Schumer’s eyes visibly watering while he described the order as “mean-spirited and un-American.” You can watch the clip above.
The moment seems to have gotten under Trump’s skin, as he has now struck back twice at Schumer, first on Twitter, where he blamed the New York senator’s tears for causing airport delays, then on Monday saying offhandedly that Schumer’s tears were “fake.” Watch that clip below.
