On ABC’s ‘This Week’ on Sunday, interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile said that the president-elect has an “enormous opportunity to reach out to Democrats.” She suggetsed he should have Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for breakfast or “afternoon tea.”
“Let’s see what Donald Trump will propose. Let’s see what he will propose on education. Let’s see what he intends to do in terms of ObamaCare,” she said.
Brazile said, “If it’s ‘my way or the highway,’ what you’re going to see again is another round of gridlock in Washington, D.C. You’re going to see retribution and retaliation. He has an enormous opportunity as every president in the first 100 days to show that, you know, he’s eager to find common ground, to meet with, you know, Democrats, Chuck Schumer. I mean Chuck Schumer knows Donald Trump, both New Yorkers. Have him over for breakfast, have him over for afternoon tea and see if you can find some common ground.”
