Trump’s remarks about Schumer came after a rant on immigration during an at times rambling speech to a crowd in Battle Creek, Mich.

“You know, Chuck SchumerChuck SchumerNew York court worker arrested, accused of threats related to inauguration Schumer: Trump should not be eligible to run for office again McConnnell, McCarthy accept Biden invitation to pre-inauguration church service MORE. Cryin’ Chuck. Cryin’ Chuck Schumer. I used to be a big contributor,” Trump, a former New Yorker, said. “He used to kiss my ass, Chuck Schumer. He’d do anything. He would have done anything for me.”

“I didn’t need anything, but he would have done anything,” Trump continued.

Trump also said that Schumer should “give all that money back,” apparently referring to the president's political contributions.

Schumer was one of several Democrats that Trump eviscerated during the Wednesday rally, which came just as the House voted almost completely along party lines to impeach the president for abusing his power in his dealings with Ukraine and obstructing the congressional inquiry.

As the top Democrat in the Senate, Schumer will play a role in the impeachment trial in the upper chamber, though Republicans hold the majority and will maintain control over the parameters.

Trump was defiant at Wednesday’s rally, defending his conduct toward Ukraine and accusing House Democrats of an “unconstitutional and partisan” effort that would backfire at the ballot box.
