House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi awoke this morning to some news that had her downright furious. As it turns out, her buddy Chuck Schumer just admitted that their arch nemesis, President Donald Trump, was right all along. Don’t you just hate it when that happens?
According to The Daily Wire, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is a diehard “Never Trumper.” He opposes every single thing that President Trump tries to do, and he’ll do anything he must to stop Trump’s agenda from moving forward. For example, in January, Schumer promised to provide $25 billion to Trump to fund new border security measures — as long as Trump agreed to permanent legal protections for illegal aliens. Then, Schumer broke his word and withdrew the offer.
Chuck Schumer has also bashed Trump for his work to denuclearize the Korean peninsula, even though the president is on the verge of ending the Korean War. Schumer vehemently opposed Trump’s huge tax cut for the middle class. Schumer even attacked Trump for pulling out of a terrible trade deal and abandoning the excessively costly Paris climate accord.
So, it comes as a real surprise that Senator Chuck Schumer is now parroting President Donald Trump, who won the White House on a motto of “America First.”
Last month, the Commerce Department banned American companies from selling specialized components to a Chinese telecommunications company called ZTE, saying it had sold technology to Iran, which is forbidden under U.S. sanctions. But, Trump doesn’t like the decision and said so on Sunday.
“President Xi of China, and I, are working together to give massive Chinese phone company, ZTE, a way to get back into business, fast. Too many jobs in China lost. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!” Trump tweeted over the weekend.

That prompted Chuck Schumer to suddenly think about putting America first.
How about helping some American companies first? https://t.co/S1t2cQ4dwJ

Chuck Schumer is part of the Barack Obama/Hillary Clinton push for globalization. To Schumer, other nations are just as important — sometimes more important — than the United States. Globalist Democrats labeled Trump a “bigot,” a “racist,” a “Nazi,” a “xenophobe,” and a slew of other derogatory things when he campaigned on the premise of putting America first. Now, apparently, they’re on board.
What liberals do not seem to realize is that we will not be able to help other countries or other people around the world if we do not start putting America first. Consider, for example, the trillions of dollars in aid we send to Third World nations each and every year. If America does not get back on track — and fast — we won’t be the only ones who are in trouble. The foreign nations relying on our help will be in even worse shape.
We are doing the entire world a grave disservice by neglecting our problems here at home while we irresponsibly give other countries all sorts of undeserved help. Take Iran, for example. Iranian politicians shout “Death to America” at their parliament meetings, yet we have sent them billions of dollars, all while there are Americans, like our brave veterans, who cannot get the help that they need. This is a travesty.
Likewise, the United Nations has repeatedly worked against our closest ally — Israel. Should we be funding the UN to the tune of $8 billion per year? Certainly not. It is time to put America first. And, apparently, even Chuck Schumer knows it, too.
