UPDATE: Schumer responds.
President Trump took to Twitter Tuesday morning and slammed Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
I see Schumer is already criticizing my State of the Union speech, even though he hasn’t seen it yet. He’s just upset that he didn’t win the Senate, after spending a fortune, like he thought he would. Too bad we weren’t given more credit for the Senate win by the media!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 5, 2019
Schumer took to the Senate floor ahead of Trump's speech and argued for 10 minutes the current state of the country is "chaos." He also bizarrely stated Trump's policies have been bad for the middle class.
President Trump will report tonight on the state of our union.— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) February 5, 2019
But, the state of the Trump economy is failing America’s middle class.
The state of the Trump healthcare system is failing American families.
The state of the Trump Administration is chaos. https://t.co/TFZmaoD2Jw
Last week the economy posted enormous job growth of more than 300,000 new openings. Currently, there are nearly seven million job openings that remain unfilled. The stock market is still roaring.
Terrific news: People getting work who need it most! “For the first time in more than 20 years, the number of people who are out of the labor force — those without jobs and not looking — shrank by 647,000 over the past 12 months."— The White House (@WhiteHouse) February 4, 2019
