Schumer knocks Trump: 'Step up and lead' on guns, immigration

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) hit back at President Trump on Friday, saying he needs to “step up and lead” on gun control and immigration.

“It’s clear to everyone but President Trump that it was he who forced the DACA issue when he ended the program. … His refusal to take yes for an answer led to his partisan plan that only got 39 votes. Now he’s headed in the same direction on gun safety,” he said, referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Schumer warned that if Trump “continues down this path, his calls for bipartisanship will ring hollow. The president needs to step up and lead.”
