Trump tangles with ‘Cryin’ Chuck’ Schumer over China trade deal

President Trump slammed Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer — needling him as “Cryin’ Chuck” — over criticism of his new trade deal with China.

“Chuck Schumer sat for years during the Obama Administration and watched as China ripped off the United States,” Trump tweeted Saturday. “Now, without even seeing it, he snipes at our GREAT new deal with China. Too bad Cryin’ Chuck!”

The partial trade agreement, announced Friday, canceled a new set of tariffs set to take effect this weekend, and scaled back tariffs that remain in place. In exchange, China agreed to buy more US farm products and remove some of its retaliatory tariffs on American goods.

Schumer dismissed the plan as a “temporary and unreliable promise” in a Friday statement.

“We’ve heard this song & dance from China before,” he tweeted.
