President Trump Slams Mitch McConnell For Supporting Infrastructure Bill

President Trump, in his latest press release, blasted Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill and didn’t stop there. The 45th president also called out Republican Senator Mitch McConnell for backing the Democrats’ wish list that hardly has anything to do with infrastructure.

As always, Trump didn’t hold his tongue and warned McConnell that he is being played as a fool by both Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi. Trump just didn’t offer baseless rhetoric on why he thinks the infrastructure bill is bad; rather he talked about how in one part of the 2,700 page bill is a clause that will give the government the ability to tax you on how many miles you drive.

Trump also pointed out that in order for the government to tax you on how many miles you drive, they also must track your movements; needless to say, this is a major invasion of privacy.

Trump Points Out Similarities Between Green New Deal and the Infrastructure Bill

According to President Trump, the infrastructure bill is just a watered-down version of the Green New Deal that has been pushed by progressives like AOC. Trump believes the content within the 2,700-page bill has a lot of similar language that is also in the Green New Deal. Those similarities are that both Biden’s infrastructure bill and the Green New Deal focus on creating clean energy and combatting climate change.

Trump isn’t the only person calling the new infrastructure bill the Green New Deal; several other Republican lawmakers and Citizens United are also calling it the Green New Deal presented in a different manner.

Here is a List of All the Republican Lawmakers Supporting the Infrastructure Bill:

  • Bill Cassidy (Louisiana)
  • Todd Young (Indiana)
  • Mike Crapo (Idaho)
  • Thom Tillis of North Carolina
  • Mitch McConnell of Kentucky
  • Mitt Romney of Utah
  • Kevin Cramer of North Dakota
  • Roy Blunt of Missouri
  • Lisa Murkowski of Alaska
  • Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia
  • John Hoeven of North Dakota
  • Richard Burr of North Carolina
  • Lindsey Graham of South Carolina
  • Jim Risch of Idaho
  • Chuck Grassley of Iowa
  • Susan Collins of Maine
  • Rob Portman of Ohio

With just a quick glance you can already notice that several lawmakers on this list voted to impeach President Trump; so it doesn’t come as a surprise that they are voting for a bill that President Trump is against.

Not everybody is just throwing in the towel and accepting the infrastructure bill; believe it or not, there are some fighters still in the Senate and one of those fighters is Senator Bill Hagerty of Tennessee. Hagerty is calling for a debate on the infrastructure bill instead of just speedily passing the bill so lawmakers can go on vacation faster.
