Schumer Puts Blame on Trump for Government Shutdown

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says only President Trump can end the government shutdown.  

During a Sunday Senate session, the New York Democrat is firing back at any suggestion Democrats are responsible for the shutdown.  

He refers to the government closure as the "Trump shutdown."

Schumer says the GOP controls Congress and the White House and is responsible for the "chaos and gridlock" the nation is in today.  

On Friday, Democrats voted against a short-term spending bill because it did not include legal protections for Dreamers.  

They're the undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and were covered under an Obama-era order.
