Trump trashes emerging infrastructure deal, warns Republicans not to support it

Former President Donald Trump ripped the Senate’s $1 trillion infrastructure package Saturday as a “disgrace,” warning that he was prepared to withhold his support for any Republican that was on board with it.

“Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill will be used against the Republican Party in the upcoming elections in 2022 and 2024. It will be very hard for me to endorse anyone foolish enough to vote in favor of this deal,” Trump warned, taking aim at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on his negotiating prowess.

“If Mitch McConnell was smart, which we’ve seen no evidence of, he would use the debt ceiling card to negotiate a good infrastructure package,” Trump hissed.

Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer is pushing to pass the package on Saturday, fulfilling one of President Biden’s signature campaign promises.
