Conway: Dems Want to ‘Restrict and Obstruct at Every Turn’

• March 6, 2017 4:01 pm


White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway appeared on "Fox and Friends" on Monday morning where she condemned Democratic leaders for having "no message" and trying to obstruct President Donald Trump's agenda.

Fox News host Steve Doocy suggested that it looks like former President Barack Obama's administration coordinated efforts to undermine Trump's agenda through leaks.

Conway agreed with Doocy, saying there are published reports backing his claim. She went on to criticize Democratic leaders, like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), saying that this was just their latest tactic to obstruct the Trump administration.

"I would just say respectfully to Sen. Schumer, this is a very typical response from the Democratic Party these days. It's that they have no message. I mean, they have no core. They have no message," Conway said.

She accused Schumer of blindly fighting against Trump, and suggested that he would oppose any and all White House initiatives, specifically citing his opposition to Trump's Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch.

"Chuck Schumer has been out there many times saying he didn't want to hear who the nominee would be to the Supreme Court, let alone Neil Gorsuch, someone he voted for 10 years ago — he and his Democratic colleagues," Conway said.

"He will obstruct any type of repeal-and-replace measure. He doesn't know what's in it yet. He doesn't know the tax reform proposal, he hasn’t seen the details of infrastructure. But they want to restrict and obstruct at every turn," she continued.

Conway then took a jab at the Democratic Party, saying they are "truly the minority party with no ideas, no solutions."

Her comments defending Trump are in response to Schumer, who told "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd on Sunday that Trump's accusations against Obama are beneath the "dignity of the presidency."

"It's something that really hurts people's view of government," Schumer said.
