President Trump reached an agreement on the debt ceiling with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi this week, proving once again that he’s able to achieve bipartisan consensus to solve problems.
Democrat Rep. Luis Gutiérrez is furious about it. During an appearance on MSNBC he went after his own party for working with the President.

Democratic Rep. Slams Pelosi, Schumer For Making Agreement With Trump; Calls Him ‘Serial Liar’
MSNBC host Chris Hayes asked Gutierrez what his reaction was to Democratic leaders threatening to jam Republican efforts in the Senate if Republicans refused to pass legislation protecting Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. DACA is a 2012 Obama-era program that deferred deportation for young illegal immigrants who traveled to the United States with their parents; several days ago, Trump announced his plan to end the program.
“The Democratic Caucus is not in sync with making this agreement with the president of the United States of America,” Gutierrez said. “I’ve spoken to dozens of members of the Democratic Caucus and let me just say this, Chris, you know we fought hard and tenaciously to put 800,000 DREAMers in a very safe place.”
Gutierrez went on to say that the DREAMers are not happy with the Democratic Party because they should have used their leverage to say,”There is no vote on the debt ceiling. There is no vote on the [continuing resolution] unless we carry with it 800,000 DREAMers and put them in a safe place.”
“Why do you not trust that something will develop in the next three months?” Hayes asked.
Gutierrez called Trump a “serial liar” and said Democrats should not be trusting Trump to keep his word on the agreement.
