Chuck Schumer Threatens To Shut Down Trump’s Government

Fact checked
Senator Chuck Schumer calls for anarchy in America

Senator Chuck Schumer has threatened to shut down the federal government over a disagreement about immigration reform. 

The Democrat New York senior senator has vowed to block a must-pass bill that would effectively stop the government from being able to operate past April 28.

In 2013, Schumer criticised Republicans’ attempt to defund ObamaCare, which resulted in a 16-day shutdown of the federal government. Hee explained on ABC’s “This Week,” “we could do the same thing on immigration reform. We believe strongly in immigration reform. We could say, ‘We’re shutting down the government, we’re not gonna raise the debt ceiling, until you pass immigration reform.’ ”

He added, “it would be government chaos.” reports:

Well, guess what: It’s 2017, and Chuck Schumer is now threatening to shut down the federal government over, among other issues, immigration reform.

New York’s senior senator doesn’t like the fact that Republicans mean to insert provisions for border-wall funding and deportation of illegal immigrants in a must-pass bill to keep the government funded past April 28. So he’s threatening a filibuster to block passage — which would result in furloughing government employees, just like last time.

Back then, Democrats called it “hostage-taking.” Now they’re blaming Republicans for leaving Democrats no option but to take hostages themselves. Or, as Schumer put it: “They will be shutting down the government and delivering a severe blow to our economy.” Meaning: When they do it, it’s reckless; when we do it, it’s principle.

Schumer was right the first time. So was Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), who said, “Hostage-taking is not governing.” Time for Schumer & Co. to go to the videotape.


  1. America is going to shut down in the spring anyway….. that’s when they run out of the last big amount of money they borrowed. and they wont be able to get anymore…. that’s when the power elite crash the economy to oust Mr Trump…… what is it about people called schumer… do they contain the “fukhead” gene or something?

  2. Go ahead, do it, BUT ………
    You do realize that all spending in the emergency situation you created is controlled by President Trump don’t you?
    All non-essential spending, like to every liberal cause, project, program, agency, and group can and probably will be stopped.

  3. De-humanized dual citizen Zionist psychopath needs to be fitted with an orange jumpsuit for his own protection.
