Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was brought to tears on Sunday during a press conference condemning President Trump’s temporary halt on immigrants from seven nations. However, it wasn’t long ago that the New York Senator was singing a different tune.
During a press gaggle in November of 2015, Senator Schumer told reporters that a temporary “pause” on refugees “may be necessary”.

During a meeting with small business leaders on Monday, President Trump blasted Senator Schumer for shedding “fake tears” during Sunday’s press conference.
“I noticed Chuck Schumer yesterday with fake tears,” President Trump said. “I’m going to ask him who is his acting coach because I know him very well. I don’t see him as a cryer.” Trump added that there’s “about a 5% chance” Schumer’s tears were real.
