Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told several morning news shows on Wednesday that he didn’t hear anything from Donald Trump Tuesday night that he could support.

All talk, no action, Schumer said about Trump. “With this president, more than any others, speeches are detached from reality.”

Matt Lauer, host of NBC’s “Today” show, asked Schumer Wednesday morning: “Give me one thing the president said in that speech last night, Senator, when you found yourself saying, ‘Yes, I can join him and get behind him on that issue.’”

“Well, Matt, here’s the problem,” Schumer replied. “He’s given a whole lot of speeches, and we’ve seen that the speeches and the reality don’t match. I’ll say yes when he comes up with something that really helps working people and says, I want to work with Democrats, here’s my proposal—”

Lauer interrupted: “So in an hour, you didn’t hear one thing that you can stand behind this morning?”

Schumer admitted he was “touched” by Trump’s mention of the fallen soldier’s widow: “But no, it’s hard to see any place where the president actually has done something for working people.”

Schumer continued: “So you know a speech has a shelf life. People forgot his inaugural speech. He had 40 days — very difficult time — because he’s not governing like his speeches. I predict the same thing is going to happen. This speech is going to be forgotten in a day or two, and where’s the action? Where’s the actual doing things to helping working people?
