President Donald Trump has blasted Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for agreeing to support, together with 18 other GOP Senators, Joe Biden’s $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill because that has paved the way for the Democrats’ to pass next their coveted $3.5 trillion spending package which will see the “biggest” tax increases in America’s history.
The biggest tax increases are coming
On Tuesday, after months of negotiations, the Senate did approve the $1.2 trillion infrastructure deal passed off as “bipartisan”, in a 69-30 cloture vote, with McConnell’s notable presence among the “bipartisan” Republican Senators who backed the bill.
Clearly enraged by McConnell’s shortsightedness, President Trump declared in a special statement that “nobody will ever understand” the reasons the Senate Minority Leader got the GOP to cooperate with Biden and lavish taxpayer money spenders that are the Democrats.
Trump stressed that by doing so McConnell squandered all of his leverage “for the big whopper of a bill” which comes next – the $3.5 trillion package favored by the Democrats, especially their horrendous progressivist Marxist-communist wing.
The 45th president of the United States slammed McConnell for “working so hard” to secure a political victory for Joe Biden, and with the Senate vote out of the way – as in the 50/50 Senate the Democrats have only a tie-breaking majority with the vote of Biden’s veep Kamala Harris – “they’ll go for the big one.”
Trump is clearly referring to the proposed $3.5 trillion spending package, which the Democrats would be able to pass through a reconciliation procedure without the need for any bipartisan support.
He emphasized that is going to including “the biggest tax increases” in the history of the United States.
Trump appeared so outraged that he called McConnell, a fellow Republican with whom he has been at odds since the 2020 election last November, “the most overrated man in politics.”
‘Not an infrastructure bill’
Some reports claim Democrats view McConnnell’s support for Biden’s infrastructure package is his attempt to rescue the legislative filibuster from being abolished by them.
That doesn’t appear to have impressed President Donald Trump, however, who posed the question as to why McConnell never sent the Democrats ultimatums over the infrastructure bill.
He pointed out that, unlike McConnell, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer was “using the threat” of passing the bill the easy way or the hard way.
Trump then went on to expose Biden’s massive bill for what it is: “not an infrastructure bill” but “the beginning of the Green New Deal.”
He remained that a bill he proposed, and which McConnell, back then the Senate Majority Leader, failed miserably at getting through, “was pure infrastructure,” unlike the Democrats’ new package.
Earlier, on Sunday, Trump had warned that the Democratic Party is going to use the supposedly bipartisan nature of the infrastructure bill for its own electoral advantage, and against the Republicans in the 2022 elections.
