Trump pressures McConnell, GOP to ditch bipartisan talks until they have majority

Source: The Hill

Former President Trump on Monday urged Senate Republicans to abandon talks on a bipartisan infrastructure deal until after the midterm elections or when the GOP retakes majorities in Congress.

"Senate Republicans are being absolutely savaged by Democrats on the so-called 'bipartisan' infrastructure bill," Trump said in a statement as Senate negotiators work to finalize an agreement this week.

Trump claimed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Republicans working on the deal, such as Sens. Rob Portman (Ohio), Susan Collins (Maine) and Mitt Romney (Utah), were merely interested in proving they could work with Democrats.

"It is so important to [McConnell] that he is agreeing to almost anything," Trump said. "Donít do the infrastructure deal, wait until after we get proper election results in 2022 or otherwise, and regain a strong negotiating stance. Republicans, donít let the Radical Left play you for weak fools and losers!"

Senate bipartisan draft. Opps -- Trump had 4 years to produce a plan and did not.

8. Okay, well, that's it. Game over for Biden and the Democrats.

The Great and Powerful Oz has spoken!

Once [Redacted] issues a command, as we all know, every GOPpie falls on their knees, kisses whatever part is closest, and immediately implements that command and only that command, as required.

Because that's how all these GOPpies roll. None of them is allowed to think for themselves, act based on their own assessment of their constituents' best interests, or even put their own potential re-election and ability to effectively fundraise ahead of The Imperial Will.

They follow orders.

And orders have been issued.

So it's all done, now.



interestedly,
Bright

whow. they sure have a lot Major sticking points yet to resolve!!


............But the negotiators are struggling to resolve final sticking points, including funding for transit, using unspent COVID-19 relief funds to pay for the deal, water funding and broadband. Democrats made a "global offer" to Republicans on Sunday night that would resolve the outstanding issues, according to a Democratic source close to the talks.

14. What TFG really wants is for the 1/6 Select Committee to be closed down.

He also wants the election to be voided and the results awarded to him. Wait, isn't he always telling everyone within earshot, "Frankly, We Did Win This Election"?

19. Trump THINKS he is pressuring the Turtle.

Mitch is a bitch, but politics is his what he is a master at. Trump, on the other hand, is an outspoken idiot under serious looming investigations of criminal activity and possible personal bankruptcy. I am sure Turtle will give Trumpís opinion all it is worth.
