Trump Rails Against Infrastructure Agreement

·1 min read

Former President Donald Trump is taking aim at the bipartisan infrastructure agreement that is making its way through the Senate. In statements released this week, Trump made it clear that he wants Republican lawmakers to oppose the agreement, charging that it is a “loser” for the country.

“Hard to believe our Senate Republicans are dealing with the Radical Left Democrats in making a so-called bipartisan bill on ‘infrastructure,’ with our negotiators headed up by SUPER RINO Mitt Romney,” Trump said in one of the statements. “This will be a victory for the Biden Administration and Democrats, and will be heavily used in the 2022 election. It is a loser for the USA, a terrible deal, and makes the Republicans look weak, foolish, and dumb.”

The former president has threatened to challenge lawmakers who support the plan – “Don’t do it Republicans—Patriots will never forget! If this deal happens, lots of primaries will be coming your way!” – but his appeals don’t appear to be having much of an effect so far.
