>> Two New Yorkers set a face off in Washington next year. President-elect Donald Trump and newly minted Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer trading praise and thinly veiled barbs in equal measure Sunday as they settle into their new roles. Early Sunday Trump tweeting quote, I have always had a good relationship with Chuck Schumer.
He is far smarter than Harry R. That is outgoing Minority Leader Harry Reid and has the ability to get things done, good news. An earlier, deleted version of the tweet where Trump called Schumer more cunning Reid was quickly amended. Schumer on the Sunday morning show circuits seen on Fox News Sunday, he's spoken with Trump and suggesting a novel concept, working together, even saying a major infrastructure bill could get done within the first 100 days of Trump's presidency.
But that Trump may have to break with Republicans to do so, saying quote, on those issues where he agrees with us and the Republican establishment and the hard right doesn't, we challenge him. Work with us and keep your promises to blue collar America.>> My test is the specifics.
>> On Meet the Press, Schumer repeating that and denying he knows Trump all that well, and also drawing a line in the sand.>> On issues where our values are at stake, we'll go against him with everything we've got.>> Schumer and Trump both officially start in their new roles in January.
