The New York Times article Chuck Schumer, the New York senator and Democratic leader, has long been a favorite of the tea party movement.
But on Tuesday, he was the subject of a new round of speculation after a tweet from a Tea Party leader on Twitter suggested that he might run for president.
Schumer’s Twitter feed, which was deleted within a few minutes, included the hashtag #SenSchumer.
The tweet from Chuck Schumer was shared widely among the tea partiers on Twitter.
The hashtag Schumer refers to is the phrase “Manu Chao,” a Thai noodle soup that has become an icon of the conservative movement.
The phrase is a reference to a Chinese man who was crucified for a plot to overthrow the ruling government.
It is the origin of the phrase, “Manchu chao,” which was a favorite theme of tea party leaders during the 2012 election campaign.
But the meme has also been adopted by Republicans.
Schumer, a Democrat, was an early supporter of the Tea Party movement and is now a key ally of President Donald Trump.
He and Trump, along with several other Republicans, have long accused Democrats of taking money from special interests.
And Schumer has frequently expressed support for Trump.
This week, he retweeted an account with the title “Chuck Schumer is not a crook.”
He retweeted another tweet in which he wrote: “I support the American people who reject corporate welfare and refuse to pay for a president who is beholden to special interests, and I support the Tea Partiers who reject establishment Democrats.”
Schumer’s spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Tea Party supporters also called out Schumer in the wake of the tweet.
“Senator Schumer has long taken a strong stand against corporate welfare,” the group American Action Network wrote in a tweet.
A second Tea Party group, the FreedomWorks, said Schumer “has been a steadfast defender of the American worker and champion of the Constitution for over two decades.”
Tea Party leaders and some members of Congress have argued that Schumer is too cozy with special interests and too cozy to be trusted with the nation’s most important jobs.
Tea party leaders also have called on Republicans to nominate a candidate for president who could defeat Trump.
On Monday, Sen. Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumerselection) May 10, 2020 Democrats are still a major factor in American politics, so they can’t be ignored, but if they do run, they’ll need to be in a better position than Trump, according to a number of tea partier voices.
#TeaPartySpeaker, #SenateLeader, #TeaPartiers will need to take back control of the House and Senate.
— Michael A. Cohen (@speechboy77) May 11, 2020 Republican Party officials have previously said they would support a candidate who was willing to run in a general election against Trump, but they have not yet endorsed a candidate.
Some GOP officials have criticized Schumer’s stance, saying the Tea partiers could easily find a better candidate.
In an interview with CNN on Tuesday night, New Jersey Gov.
Chris Christie said the president should run, but he also called on his colleagues to put their political differences aside and endorse him.
“We’re all Americans,” Christie said.
“So it’s a little premature to call on anybody else to run.”
Schumer, who has been a member of the Senate for four decades, has been in the spotlight since he endorsed Trump in November.
He also served as the Senate minority leader in the George W. Bush administration.
Last month, he endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden, who will soon take over the White House.
Biden has criticized Trump in the past and has vowed to work with Democrats to pass legislation to make college tuition free.
Schumer and other Democrats have also pushed for a new investigation into the death of Rep. Steve Scalise, who was shot by a gunman who had been on the FBI’s radar since he was a U.S. congressman.
The gunman was later killed by a police officer, who is under investigation for possible criminal conduct.
“The facts of this incident should be known, but we have a responsibility to protect all Americans from violence,” Schumer said in a statement last month.
“As an elected official who serves in the Senate, I will continue to do my part to ensure that all Americans are treated with dignity and respect.”
Democrats have long pushed for new investigations into the shooting.
On Tuesday, they announced that they were forming the Committee on the Judiciary to investigate the shooting, which left Representative Steve Scalis, a Louisiana Republican, dead.
The Democratic majority in the U.N. General Assembly is expected to take up the legislation.
The Senate Judiciary Committee voted to launch its probe in May.
