President Trump accuses Sen. Chuck Schumer of crying 'fake tears'

President Donald Trump accused Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) of crying "fake tears" when Schumer delivered an emotional opposition Sunday to Trump's executive order on immigration. "I noticed Chuck Schumer yesterday with fake tears," Trump said Monday. "I'm going to ask him who was his acting coach because I know him very well. I don't see him as a crier."

Schumer got teary-eyed in his speech Sunday, calling Trump's order "mean-spirited and un-American."

"There's about a 5 percent chance it was real," Trump said.

It is not the first time Trump has weighed in on the validity of someone's emotions. Last January, Trump confirmed he believed Barack Obama "was sincere" when the president teared up announcing his executive action on gun control.
