The Senate’s top Democrat has withdrawn an offer that would allow President Donald Trump to fulfill a signature campaign pledge: Construction of a wall along the U.S-Mexico border.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., took back his offer late Sunday through an aide, according to a person familiar with the situation, who was granted anonymity to speak frankly about ongoing talks.

The decision to withdraw the offer to negotiate over the construction of a border wall comes as Schumer is facing strong criticism within his ranks and from liberal organizations angered that he didn’t push harder for an immigration deal as part of an agreement to reopen the federal government.

  1. The biggest fools are us heimisha who allowed Schumer to defeat our good friend Deamato. He as a non Jew was the only politician to speak up during the crown heights pogroms. The ratskonim supported the Schumer idiot.
