TRUMP TORPEDOES GOP ATTEMPT TO BLAME DEMS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE WOES BY PUBLICLY ORDERING HIS PARTY TO TANK DEAL

Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in May: “100% of my focus is on stopping this new administration.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Former President Trump just released a statement ordering Republicans to tank the bipartisan infrastructure deal. This comes as Republicans try to blame the shifting status of the bipartisan infrastructure deal on Democrats, despite months of patient negotiation from the White House and Congressional leadership.

Invest in America Action spokesperson Maddy McDaniel made the following statement: 

“While Republicans furiously try to spin that Democrats are being unreasonable in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework talks, the leader of their own party just literally ordered them to tank the deal.

“Trump’s statement comes after Mitch McConnell divulged that 100% of his energy was devoted to stopping President Biden’s agenda.

“Next time Republicans want to try to blame Democrats for their own obstruction, they should consider telling the leaders of their party not to spill the beans on their game plan.”
