    Schumer: Relationship with Republicans getting better

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) says that relationships between Democrats and Republicans in Congress are improving, but said he feels the White House has not done enough to support lawmakers.

    "We are actually working together in a pretty good way," Schumer told radio host John Catsimatidis in an interview that aired Sunday. "I think this will happen more and more and more."

    "Our Republican friends, I think, want to work with us. I think sometimes the president gets in the way of that. But I think you are going to see us working together more and more," he repeated. "I have even gotten [Sen. Mitch McConnell] to laugh at my jokes."

    Schumer pointed at U.S. trade policy with China as one issue that could bridge the gap between Democrats in Congress and the Trump administration.

    The New York Democrat even remarked that he was "closer" to Trump on the issue than he was to former Presidents Obama or George W. Bush.

    "I was closer in trade policy to Donald Trump than I was to George Bush and Barack Obama," Schumer remarked. He added that he wants Trump to follow through on his campaign rhetoric to stand up to China economically.
