President Donald Trump trolled Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer by referencing his past comments on illegal immigration.

Trump referenced a TV segment from Fox News comparing Schumer’s rhetoric on immigration from 2009 versus his own.

“We want an immigration policy that’s fair, equitable, but going to protect our people. What the American people are pleading for is sanity and common sense in our immigration system,” Schumer declared, in marked similarity to the president’s rhetoric.

Trump frequently derides Schumer’s change in tune on immigration as the Senate continues to stymie any administration efforts to change the U.S. immigration system. The administration does not expect any substantial legislative effort before the midterm elections.
