Trump tweeted about their “good relationship” and Schumer’s “ability to get things done.” Schumer spoke of issues like infrastructure and trade where Trump had embraced Democratic positions, pointing to common ground with the next president on “a good number of economic issues.” But just days into the 115th Congress, the Trump-Schumer courtship has already turned cold.(AP Photo/Cliff Owen, File)

John Cornyn, R-Texas, gives victims' families the right to sue in U.S. court for any role that elements of the Saudi government may have played in the 2001 attacks that killed thousands in New York, the Washington, D.C. area and Pennsylvania.

In this July 16, 2015 photo,Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., speaks during a hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington. Democratic lawmakers say they’re going to make those 60 days reviewing the nuclear deal with Iran count. That’s how long they will have once the White House transmits the agreement to Congress. The political calculus for Schumer is in a class of its own. Many members see him, likely the next Senate Democratic leader, as the most influential member of his party on the issue. For now, Schumer, who is Jewish, is staying mum, under pressure from the president, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton and pro-Israel groups opposed to the deal.
