President Trump made fun of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer today, after Schumer cried during a press conference about Trump's temporary travel ban.
Teary Schumer, surrounded by a group of resettled refugees, said:
"This executive order was mean-spirited and un-American. It was implemented in a way that created chaos and confusion across the country, and it will only serve to embolden and inspire those around the globe who would do us harm."
Trump didn't buy the tears one bit:
"I noticed that Chuck Schumer yesterday, with fake tears – I'm going to ask him, who's his acting coach?Because I know him very well. I don't see him as a crier – if he is, he's a different man. There's about a 5 per cent chance that it was real, but I think it was fake tears."
A statement released by his post-presidential office reads:
"President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country,' according to a statement released by his post-presidential office.
With regard to comparisons to President Obama’s foreign policy decisions, as we’ve heard before, the president fundamentally disagrees with the notion of discriminating against individuals because of their faith or religion."
