“This is a president, look, who has no ideology. He’s not conservative. He’s not liberal,” Schiff told ABC’s “This Week.” 

“The only consistent theme seems to be he’s pro-Trump. He’s for his own personal interest," he said.

The president shocked Republicans earlier this month when he struck a deal with Democratic leadership to fund the government for three months and raise the debt ceiling.

Schiff described Trump’s recent outreach to Democrats as “purely transactional.”

“I think all of us recognize that outreach for what it is and that’s purely transactional, purely something that will come up from time to time when the president decides it’s in his personal interest to work with Democrats,” he said.

Schiff added that Democrats should “take advantage” of the outreach when it makes sense.
