While speaking at an MLK Day event, House Democratic Caucus chair, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) called Trump the grand wizard of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Hakeem Jeffries at the National Action Network: "We have a hater in the White House. Birther-in-Chief. The Grand Wizard of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. One of the things we've learned is that while Jim Crow may be dead he's still got some nieces and nephews that are alive and well."

This is why the House isn’t going to give Trump a dime for his wall
This is a new House Democratic majority. They aren’t going to make deals with Trump that aren’t good for the country. These House Democrats aren’t going to sacrifice themselves to clean up Republican messes. The Democratic House majority lives in reality and they see things as they are.
House Democrats know who they are dealing with.
The same guy who showed up at the MLK memorial with his stooge VP to drop off a wreath and stay for two minutes isn’t going to cut a responsible deal on immigration.
Democrats are speaking the truth about Trump, and the party of JFK and FDR won’t be compromising with the Grand Wizard of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
