‘Who Is His Acting Coach’: Trump Rips Schumer for Crying Over Executive Order

President Donald Trump on Monday called out Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) for crying during a press conference over the weekend during which Schumer criticized Trump for his executive order halting immigration from countries linked to terrorism.

Trump gave brief remarks to the media after a meeting with small business owners Monday morning in the White House, where he chastised Schumer for crying during a Sunday press conference.

"I'm gonna ask him: who is his acting coach? Because I know him very well. I don't see him as a crier. If he is, he's a different man," Trump said of Schumer's emotional reaction. "There's about a five percent chance that it was real, but I think they were fake tears."

During his remarks, Trump was also critical of Schumer's tactics in delaying the confirmation votes of members of his Cabinet, which Trump explained was only being done for "political reasons."

In early morning tweets on Monday, the president also blamed Schumer and his tears for eruptions at airports across the country over the weekend.

On Sunday, Schumer decried Trump's executive order as "mean-spirited" and "un-American" and described the policy as being "implemented in a way that created chaos and confusion." Schumer called for the order to be immediately reversed.

The order halts the Syrian refugee program and bans people from seven Muslim-majority countries from coming to the U.S.

Trump also told reporters on Monday that he would be naming his Supreme court nominee, who he described as "unbelievably highly respected," at 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
