At Tuesday’s State of the Union address, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) smirked as President Donald Trump described the last-minute, late-term abortion recently legalized by New York lawmakers.

Trump decried the new state law permitting abortion up to the moment of birth, and called for Congress to pass a federal ban on late-term abortion. Senate Minority Leader Sen. Schumer smirked, occasionally mouthing words, as Trump said:

“There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our nation saw in recent days. Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments from birth. These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and their dreams with the world. And then, we had the case of the Governor of Virginia where he stated he would execute a baby after birth.

“To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.”

As Schumer smirked, Trump’s comments were met with loud cheers and applause from the Chamber’s audience.
