Schumer was responding to a tweet from the president earlier Thursday criticizing the New York Democrat for wanting to stay in the Iran nuclear agreement.

“Senator Cryin’ Chuck Schumer fought hard against the Bad Iran Deal, even going at it with President Obama, & then Voted AGAINST it!” the president tweeted. “Now he says I should not have terminated the deal - but he doesn’t really believe that! Same with Comey. Thought he was terrible until I fired him!”

Schumer’s comeback was a dig at Melania Trump’s new initiative, which is meant to “encourage positive social, emotional, and physical habits” among children and improve their well-being online.

The first lady has sparked criticism for speaking out against cyber bullying while her husband frequently attacks others online. 

“I’m well aware that people are skeptical of me discussing this topic. I have been criticized by many for my commitment to tackling this issue, and I know that will continue,” she said during a meeting with tech leaders in March.

“But it will not stop me from doing what I know is right,” she continued. “I’m here with one goal: helping children in our next generation.”

The unveiling of the “Be Best" campaign earlier this week was met with controversy when it became known that the booklet distributed with the initiative was first published by the Federal Trade Commission during the Obama administration.
