Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., wants President-elect Donald Trump to quit using Twitter because he wants the public to "hear nothing but The New York Times," Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, said Wednesday morning.

"Trump is not going to let that happen," Gohmert told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "He's going to get the final word and straighten them out when they lie about it."

During his opening remarks on the Senate floor Tuesday, Schumer addressed Trump and his use of Twitter directly, telling him "making America great again requires more than 140 characters per issue. With all due respect to you, America cannot afford a Twitter presidency."

Schumer is a "smart man," Gohmert said, before qualifying that statement. "We have to give him that. He is. Like a broken clock, he's right a couple of times a day, but look at the other things he's been saying."

However, Gohmert pointed out Schumer has also told Republicans if they "didn't get on board with Obamacare, our party would be gone, because it was to be so great. [He was] wrong on that."

Schumer had also said Republicans "needed to get on board with cap and trade because the country was going to be behind it, and that was not only a tax, [it was a] big tax that hurt poor people in America," Gohmert said. "[He said] we need to get behind President [Barack] Obama . . . he said we needed embrace amnesty or our party was over. I'm grateful for his great help."

Schumer "represents the fringe party," Gohmert continued.

But Gohmert said he is optimistic because "Trump is not going to let The New York Times have the last word and not going to let Chuck Schumer have the last word. We will be competitive in trying to fix what's wrong with America."
