Schumer criticizes Trump for diverting funds from FEMA for border


IT’S BECAUSE THAT’S ONE THING THEY DO NOT NEED IS ANOTHER STORM LIKE THIS.>>Sandra: MU WHILE AS WE WATCHED DORIAN AND IT CONTINUES TO BARREL TOWARDS PUERTO RICO THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS DIVERTING $271 MILLION OF NAFTA RELIEF FUND TO IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT ON OUR SOUTHERN BORDER. THE MOVE IS SPARKING BACKLASH FROM DEMOCRATS. THE PRESS SECRETARY JOINS ME ON SET IN OUR NATION’S CAPITAL. NICE TO HAVE YOU HERE THIS MORNING. SO THE PRESIDENT IS TAKING A LOT OF HEAT FOR THIS DECISION TO DIVERT THESE FUNDS TO THE BORDER AT THE BEGINNING OF HURRICANE SEASON. IS THIS A GOOD MOVE? SPEAK OF THE DEMOCRATS KNOW THAT THIS MONEY ISN’T BEING DIVERTED FROM ANYTHING THAT CAN BE USED FOR RECOVERY EFFORTS OR PREPAREDNESS EFFORTS. THEY KNOW THIS SO THIS IS A FLAT OUT LIED. IF THE MEDIA IS REPORTING IT AND CONTINUES TO DO SO THIS WAY, THEY EITHER HAVEN’T GOTTEN TO THE CONCLUSION OF THE FACT THAT THIS POT OF MONEY CAN’T BE USED FOR RECOVERY EFFORT OR THEY KNOW IT AND THEY ARE MISREPRESENTING IT INTENTIONALLY. THAT OBVIOUSLY IS PROBLEMATIC. THIS PRESIDENT HAS GIVEN BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO PUERTO RICO, FLORIDA, TEXAS, SOUTH CAROLINA, ANYWHERE THAT’S FACED ONE OF THESE DAMAGING STORMS HE WANTS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO BE BACK IN THE FEET AND THAT’S WHAT HE DOES IT.>>I KNOW HE ASKED WILL IT EVER END IF HE TALKED ABOUT THOSE FUNDS GOING TO PUERTO RICO, THE DEMOCRATS ARE CALLING THIS CRUEL, CHUCK SCHUMER TOOK THIS ON IN THE STATEMENT ABOUT THE MONEY GETTING DEPORTED AND WROTE THAT THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S PLAN TO DIVERT MONEY AWAY FROM FEMA AT THE BEGINNING OF HURRICANE SEASON IS BACKWARDS AND CRUEL. TAKING THESE CRITICAL FUNDS FROM DISASTER PREPAREDNESS AND RECOVERY EFFORTS THREATEN THE LIVES AND WEAKENS THE GOVERNMENT’S ABILITY TO HELP AMERICANS IN THE WAKE OF NATURAL DISASTER. YOUR RESPONSE THAT?>>I WILL TELL YOU WHAT’S CRUEL, WHEN LOCAL POLITICIANS AND PUT A RICO MISUSE TAXPAYER FUNDS. THE MOST MONEY WE SENT DOWN THERE WE NOW KNOW SEVERAL ON THE GROUND HAVE BEEN INDICTED FOR MISUSING THAT MONEY, GIVING IT A POLITICIANS AS BONUSES, WATCHING THAT FOOD WROUGHT IN THE PORTS, THE WATER WENT BAD. THE PRESIDENT HAS DONE EVERYTHING IN HIS POWER TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PEOPLE OF PUERTO RICO ARE PREPARED FOR THIS NEXT STORM AND THEY ARE STILL REBUILDING FROM THE LAST ONE BECAUSE OF THE BILLION DOLLARS WE SENT DOWN THERE. HIS HEART GOES OUT TO THEM, BACK-TO-BACK HURRICANE’S JUST A YEAR AGO IT WAS A VERY HORRIFIC SITUATION DOWN THERE. THE PRESIDENT MOVED HEAVEN AND EARTH TO TRY AND HELP THEM REBUILD, THE DEMOCRATS ARE PLAYING POLITICS COULDN’T CHUCK SCHUMER KNOWS THIS POT OF MONEY CAN’T BE USED FOR HURRICANE RECOVERY OR PREPAREDNESS COME HE’S TELLING US FLAT OUT LIES.>>HERE IS THE SAN JUAN MAYOR .>>WE ARE NOT GOING TO BE CONCERNED BY FRANKLY HIS BEHAVIOR, HIS LACK OF UNDERSTANDING. IT IS LUDICROUS. 3,000 PUERTO RICANS DID NOT OPEN THEIR EYES THIS MORNING BECAUSE THIS RACIST MAN DID NOT HAVE IT WITHIN HIM TO DO HIS JOB. TO GET OUT OF THE WAY, PRESIDENT TRUMP COME AND LET THE PEOPLE WHO CAN DO THE JOB TO GET DONE.>>Sandra: THESE TWO HAVE BEEN ENGAGED IN A WAR OF WORDS FOR QUITE SOME TIME. NOW SAYING TO GET OUT OF THE WAY TO PRESIDENT TRUMP. WHAT ROLE DOES HE SEE THAT HE CAN PLAY, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO ACCOUNTABILITY OF THOSE FUNDS TO CONTINUE TO FLOW THERE?>>LISTEN, THAT’S A LOCAL ISSUE AS YOU KNOW. FEDERAL DOLLARS THAT WENT OTHER WERE MISUSED AND ABUSED. THE TERRITORY WAS IN SERIOUS TROUBLE BECAUSE OF THE LOCAL POLITICIANS AND WHAT THEY’VE DONE. PROPPING UP THEIR OWN BANK ACCOUNTS AS OPPOSED TO HELPING THE PEOPLE OF PUERTO RICO. THE FACT IS WE HAVE FEMA OFFICIALS ON THE GROUND THEY ARE IN THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS, WE ARE IN CONSTANT CONTACT WITH THEM AT THE LOCAL LEVEL TO PREPARE THEM FOR THIS STORM AND ANYTHING THAT FOLLOWS IT. AGAIN, THEY’LL KNOW THAT THIS MONEY CAN’T BE USED FOR PREPAREDNESS OR RECOVERY AND THEY ARE LYING ABOUT IT, THEY KNOW THAT. THIS PRESIDENT WANTS TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE.>>I WILL CONCLUDE THIS WITH THE PRESIDENT IN HIS OWN ROOM, GIVE THEM A BIG THANK YOU, NOT LIKE LAST TIME, THAT INCLUDES FROM THE INCOMPETENT MAYOR OF SAN JUAN. THAT FEUD CONTINUES AND WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO WATCH THE PATH OF THAT STORM LOOKING VERY SERIOUS AND COULD DEVELOP INTO A HURRICANE. SPEAK OF THE RESOURCES WE DELIVER NEED TO GET TO THE PEOPLE OF PUERTO RICO AND THAT’S WHAT THIS IS ABOUT.>>MEANWHILE YOU ARE FRESH BACK FROM THE G7 SUMMIT IN FRANCE, I KNOW YOU ARE TRAVELING WITH THE PRESIDENT. THERE ARE REPORTEDLY SOME TRADE INSIDERS WHO ARE TALKING ABOUT THE PRESIDENT HARSH NEGOTIATING TACTICS WHEN IT COMES TO GETTING A DEAL DONE WITH CHINA AND THOUGHT IT COULD WORK AGAINST THE PRESIDENT. OUR HIS NEGOTIATION TACTICS WORKING?>>THEY ARE WORKING. HE HAS INCREDIBLE RELATIONSHIPS WITH LEADERS AROUND THE GLOBE I DON’T UNDERSTAND HIS NARRATIVE AT ALL. THE PRESIDENT WAS CLEAR THIS IS THE WAY HE NEGOTIATES WITH ITS THE MEXICO DEAL WITH IT SENT TROOPS TO THEIR BORDER. THIS PRESIDENT DEALS WITH LEADERS OF FOUR NATIONS IN A VERY GOOD WAY TO TO PROTECT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FIRST. HE WANTS OTHER PEOPLE TO SUCCEED AS WELL, BUT THIS IS ABOUT PROTECTING AMERICAN GETTING THE BEST DEALS FOR US A NEW SUBLET AT THE G7 BECAUSE THE MEDIA WANTED TO FOCUS ON THE AMOUNT OF CALLS BETWEEN OUR ADMINISTRATION AND CHINA. THERE WAS CONFUSION, BUT THEY WANTED TO TALK ABOUT THAT AS OPPOSED TO THE DEAL THAT WAS ACTUALLY ON THE TABLE THAT THIS PRESIDENT SECURED BECAUSE OF HIS GREAT RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PRIME MINISTER. $7 BILLION WITH OUR FARMERS, JAPAN IS NOT BUYING THE COURT WARNED THAT CHINA SAID IT WOULDN’T. THIS WAS A MASSIVE DEAL BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND JAPAN AND THE ONLY REASON WE CAN MAKE THAT IS BECAUSE OF THE RELATIONSHIPS AND THE RESPECT OF THAT THE PRESIDENT OF THIS COUNTRY AND PRIME MINISTER ABE HAVE WITH EACH OTHER.>>REWIND TO MONDAY, HERE IS THE PRESIDENT IN HIS WORDS ON TAKING ON THE CHINESE PRESIDENT AND RAISING THE STAKES.>>WHEN I RAISE AND HE RAISES, WE CAN NEVER CATCH UP WHAT WE HAVE TO BALANCE OUR TRADING RELATIONSHIP AT LEAST TO AN EXTENT. THEY WERE UNWILLING TO DO THAT AND WILL NEVER HAVE A DEAL IF THAT HAPPENS BUT IS GOING TO HAPPEN. BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO HAVE A DEAL. IT’S BECAUSE I HAVE TO HAVE A DEAL. TALKING WITH THE WEAKENING ECONOMY THEY ARE AND HOW THAT’S GOING TO FOCUS THEIR HAND HERE. FINALLY WHAT SHOULD WE KNOW TODAY ABOUT ONGOING PHONE CALLS, NEGOTIATIONS, ARE WE MAKING PROGRESS WITHOUT THAT G7 SUMMIT?>>WE ARE IN THE ONLY WAY WE CAN HAVE THIS CONVERSATION WITH CHINA IS BECAUSE OUR ECONOMY IS SO STRONG IN OTHERS AROUND THE GLOBE ARE STRUGGLING. THE PRESIDENT DOES HAVE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH XI JINPING, THAT’S PRETTY OBVIOUS WITH THEIR DEALINGS WITH EACH OTHER.>>I JUST TAKE QUESTION WHETHER OR NOT THAT HE IS AN ENEMY.>>THEY HAVE A REPORT, THEY RESPECT EACH OTHER AND THE PRESIDENT UNDERSTANDS THIS ISN’T CHINA’S FAULT AS TO WHY THE AMERICAN WORKER, AMERICAN INDUSTRIES, , AND AMERICAN CORPORATIONS HAVE BEEN TAKING IN THE TEETH FOR THE LAST 30 YEARS, IT’S THE POLITICIANS OF THE PAST WHO LOVED THE STATUS QUO AND DIDN’T WANT ANYTHING TO GET DONE. THIS PRESIDENT WANTS TO PROTECT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND WHAT THE DEAL. BUT THE DEAL HAS TO BE GOOD FOR THIS COUNTRY FIRST.>>Sandra: THE PRESIDENT ALSO SPOKEN LENGTH GIVING A NEWS CONFERENCE TO REPORTERS TALKING ABOUT CHYRON. HE SEEMED TO SUCH AN OPTIMISTIC TONE, WHAT IS NEXT?>>LISTEN COME HE HAS BEEN CLEAR THAT HE WANTS TO HAVE CONVERSATIONS WITH LEADERS OF IRAN WITHOUT PRECONDITIONS. IS BEEN VERY CLEAR ABOUT THAT AND HE WAS CLEAR IN THE G7 AS WELL. AT THE FACT THAT IRAN IS UNDER A MAXIMUM PRESSURE CAMPAIGN BY THIS PRESIDENT BECAUSE OF ITS DECADES WORTH OF MALIGN BEHAVIOR. ITS LARGEST STATE-SPONSORED SOURCE OF TERROR ON THE GLOBE AND IT USED BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN CASH THAT OBAMA GAVE THEM TO PROP UP THEIR TERRORIST NETWORKS GLOBALLY. THAT’S CAN’T HAPPEN ANYMORE AND IT’S WHY WE ARE HOLDING THEIR FEET TO THE FIRE.>>PRESIDENT MICRON SUGGESTED THAT THERE SHOULD BE A MEETING TO HAPPEN IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS.>>HE WANTS A MEETING TO HAPPEN AND THAT’S FINE. HE’S ALWAYS WILLING TO TALK TO PEOPLE BUT SANCTIONS ARE NOT GOING TO BE LIFTED THIS TIME BECAUSE WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY COME TO THE TABLE UNDERSTANDING THEIR ECONOMIES CRIPPLING COME OF THEIR POTENTIAL IS GREAT BUT THEY HAVE TO STOP WHAT THEY ARE DOING

    Get rid of FEMA. They are nothing but a federal overreach agency with far too much money and power. Let the National Guard do the job as they always have.

  • Nathan Kriever says:

    As the Bulk of the Trade Tariffs go into effect next week, and over the Course of the next month, retaliations are commencing and reaching the crescendo. The inverted yield curve is – unknownst to Most people – heading to the crisis Levels pre-2008 – 2009 Obama Collapse, but the momentum and impetus Clearly suggests that it will go far higher than it did in the days of the 2009 Meltdown. A no-Brainer, buy Bonds, as Bond price are inversely-correlated to yields, and yields are dropping. Or you could buy Stocks with Constant Up-down-Up-down price from Day-to-day and Record-Price Drops, the Highest in all of U.S.A. History.

  • Obama diverted funds in 2014. Dems will always have double standards. Hypocrites, liars and idiots. DON'T EVER TRUST THE DEMS!!! They will ALWAYS say what their base wants to hear. ZERO INTEGRITY!!!!

  • WHERE IS ALL THE MONEY THAT THE "CLINTON'S" TOOK FOR "HAITI" ??????? SO SHUT UP CHUCKY GO AND GET THAT MONEY BACK FIRST 💩🤡💩🤡💩🤡

  • We as Americans might as well FLUSH our TAX dollars down the toilet,RATHER than give a DIME to the losers in PR.These PCS OF SH*T can't even distriburte the relief supplies we delivered.

  • Be afraid, Schumer ..be VERY afraid ..God KNOWS your unrighteous, lying heart ..and when it will STOP ..to leave you DEAD ..to be judged [righteously] by God ..NOT by your Godless supporters.
    It's later now than it has ever been ..where we go is OUR call ..NEVER God's.

  • Human Person Junior, Jr. says:

    If I were President, and no one on my staff was named Hogan Gidley, I'd make someone change his name.  What an awesome name!!

  • im so ashamed of schumer, you see im from new york and still live here, im smh because these walkinnd dead fellow new yorkers f mine just keep voting these dicks in

  • Poor crying chuck. Or the cuckold chuck. That’s it the border has to be finished the wall will go up. Drones will fly and we will secure our border .

  • TRUMP IS NOW KILLING SMALL CHILDREN!!!!!. He stopped a medical deferral program for undocumented children in hospitals that have life threatening diseases and wants deport them. I don't care who these kids are. They are still innocent small children in the eyes of the Lord.

  • Schumer you are a despicable human being. I am sick of you, your face and your BABBLING MOUTH… YOU STRECH EVERYTHING OUT TO UNBELIEVABLE, YOU QUACK!

  • President Regan passed an immigration reform bill called the Simpson-Mazzoli Act of 1986 which welcomed 2.7 million illegal aliens in exchange for Border Security. Its 2019 and we’re still waiting for the Border Security part of the act. After 30+ years it’s time for the wall. Keep up the great work Mr. President. Trump in 2020.

  • The Make America Great Again” is a brand name for a “populist movement” or business model that is looking out for the interest of the USA by rebuilding the U.S. middle-class by replacing multilateral trade agreements with bilateral trade agreements. President George H.W. Bush introduction of the "New World Order" and President Bill Clintons "NAFTA" are “Globalist” business models. Ross Perot (who ran against GHW Bush and B Clinton) said the USA would here a "giant sucking sound" of jobs leaving the USA if we got into NAFTA and other multilateral trade agreements. Perot was right. The trade practices from the 1990’s to 2016 created US trade deficits (“sucking sound”) and has hurt the U.S. middle-class. Donald Trump is supporting a business model that is looking out for the interest of the USA by rebuilding the U.S. middle-class by replacing multilateral trade agreements with bilateral trade agreements; balancing USA trade deficits; creating insensitive for companies to operate in the USA that will create higher paying jobs for US citizens. The two different business models will always put the Anti-Trump movement (globalist) at odds with Donald Trump’s MAGA (populist) movement. The next time someone tells you that trade deficits don’t matter ask yourself this: If trade deficits aren’t important than why are countries like China and Germany working so hard at keeping their trade surplus intact?

  • Mayor Carmen Yulin is one of the most corrupt politicians here in Puerto Rico… She sold us out to the Dems Like Obama, Pelosi, schumer and others. They have there secrete meetings that we all know about. She's been taking bribes for a long time.

  • David Philippi says:

    Schumer a joke. He didn't complain when his entire party diverted their heads from their shoulders to their asses.
    Anything to obstruct. Sad little snowflakes.

  • Becky Guillory says:

    This reminds me of the Clintons and their funded Hattie relief money. They took millions from donation made by Americans! I pray for these people and there needs. Clean house President Trump this has got to stop now! We need to be able to recover from Anti Semantic, flag burning, and Socialism! Trump 2020 will insure we have at least for the next five years.

  • Democrats just don't like it because we are keeping their future Socialist voters OUT of this country. Soros must be pissed.

  • Sandra……..STOP INTERRUPTING. Right while hes saying exactly what we want to know….you interrupt…???  Please…STOP. Learn from Tucker…Fox News best host regarding this issue.

  • REAL AMERICAN PATRIOTS "GET IT" what our President is doing is RIGHT! The last 3 Presidents should have never let other Countries take over America. The last 3 sold this Country out. What's worse they are fighting to keep selling it out. Does anyone know about the Interstates being sold to other Countries? Partials of Interstate Highways are now owned by foreign Countries. What else are the Democratic Party/Deep State/Cabal willing to sell. Daily they are trying to sell Americas Freedoms by pushing Socialism/Communism ways. Millineals you best watch closely what you are pushing for,you will end up in reeducation camps and NO CELL PHONES OR FREEDOMS not to mention you will be starving. The Smart Cities youth cannot wait for will give access to pedo's and cannibal pineal gland consumers,how SMART WILL YOU BE THEN? EVIL IS LOSING CONTROL,LOSING MONEY,YOUTH and POWER, its why they will say or do anything to get it back! PuertoRicans stand up against your home leadership,your Mayor WANTS POWER OVER YOU! DON'T LET HER TAKE IT.

  • Schumer has been in office for decades and has never solved a single problem, including the border. And now he criticizes Trump who is solving the border problem. He should retire; he is useless and always has been.

  • Chuck Schumer Nancy pelosi and Adam Schiff are three pieces of swamp turds ,our President Donald Trump has done one hell of a job with our country to protect us from outside and overseas threats, could these Democratic assholes do a better job, hell no

  • Tuff sht Schumer if you don't like what Trump is doing. We don't like your failure to do the job you are paid and sworn to do… that is in case you don't know what your job is: Is to serve and protect our country. Which includes securing our border… Got that? snap too it dude

  • didnt florida vote for trump? when Hurricane dorian hits and should the worst happen, blame trump for diverting money from fema to useless bs

  • Gabriel Rosario says:

  • Why doesn't the crooked Puerto Rican Mayor return the unspent taxpayer funds that they have given away, just before they get marched off to jail. These idiots are obviously incapable of doing their jobs. Thank god for FEMA

  • So now the press wants those that negotiate trade deals to be like Bernie Sanders! How would that work? That's why the press aren't negotiators, They and their so-called experts have NO IDEA.

  • Crying Chuckie Schumer is a career politician that has never done anything except promote their Demonrat agenda…. what a P.O S. 💩🖕

  • I am a Latina, and I know that President Trump is not racist. It is Puerto Rico politicians using the money they were sent for bonuses to their chronies. What a hypocrite!!!.

  • Victor Johnson says:

    The local politicians who STOLE this relief money are the problem NOT President Trump. Slick Chuck Schumer is a DISGRACE! So is this Cruz lady.

  • OneCupOfCoffee204 says:

    All the Democrats know how to do is play dirty politics. They project the worst-case scenario and out-right lies on to the president and their opposition.
    In reality, the Democrats are the ones who are misleading, lying to and hurting the American people stealing taxpayer money and ultimately not transitioning power to the new president and his administration.
