Donald Trump is calling on the Republican senators who voted in favor of the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill to be replaced at the earliest primary opportunity.
The former President called on the GOP to “primary them all” in a post on his Truth Social media platform earlier today.
Trump began by congratulating newly minted Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, before railing on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and the other Republicans who voted in favor of the spending bill.
“Great job Kevin!” he said before a quick pivot.
“We must now stop Mitch McConnell … It’s as though he just doesn’t care anymore, he pushes through anything the Democrats want,” added Trump. “The $1.7 TRILLION quickly approved Bill of the week before was HORRIBLE.”
The 2024 presidential candidate noted that had the omnibus been stalled, the issue of spending could have been taken up by a newly “United Republican Congress.”

The Political Insider reported previously that the omnibus spending spree was passed within days of Republicans taking control of the House, abdicating the power of the purse for the GOP until September of 2023.
The bill included, among other things, an overhaul of the Electoral Count Act to further cement institutional power, along with nearly $45 billion in aid to Ukraine.
Two of the senators listed above – Blunt and Shelby – have since retired, which at least explains their willingness to sell out their colleagues without concern for ramifications.
Locking arms with Democrats on spending seemed like an intentional attempt at blocking a GOP House with new pro-Trump Representatives from immediately diving in and tightening up the Ukraine First spending spree.
Especially after seeing the recent Speaker fight, which showed true conservatives having more power than expected.
The spending bill vote was also a brutal reminder to voters that when it comes to spending taxpayer dollars, the two political parties in this country, in reality, are on a relatively united front.

This isn’t the first time the former President has been critical of Mitch McConnell and the Republicans’ support of the massive $1.7 trillion spending bill.
When McCarthy was struggling to earn the vote for Speaker, Trump took aim at McConnell and his “RINO allies” for “turmoil” in the Republican Party.
He added that some of the unrest stemmed from the distrust fomented by GOP lawmakers voting in favor of the omnibus spending bill.
The real problem, he explained, are Republicans and their leadership “constantly capitulating to hopeless Joe Biden and the Democrats.”
Trump later insinuated the Democrats must have some compromising information on McConnell following his support for the bill.
“The Marxist Democrats must have something really big on Mitch McConnell in order to get him and some of his friendly ‘Republican’ Senators to pass the horrendous” spending bill, he said.
Trump even offered a nickname – the “ominous” spending bill.
Shortly thereafter, McConnell made a
hostage tape joint appearance with President Biden to celebrate “infrastructure” spending.
Trump has described McConnell as an “absolute loser” who has been giving Democrats “everything they want” and pressed the GOP to oust the Republican leader.
Now he wants to see the other 17 senators who helped pass this spending bill ousted as well. It seems 2024 is shaping up to be not just a major battle against the Democrat party, but an explosive fight to see who is the true leader of the GOP going forward.
Now is the time to support and share the sources you trust.

Do not raise the debt ceiling until at least 1 Trillion of this pork is sequestered, including all aid to the NAZI monsters in the Ukraine. If that means shutting the federal government down, we wilt all be he better off for it. Cut all spending by 50% or more,including all funds that are sent to the North Atlantic Terrorist Organization. No funds until constructional on the production of fossil fuels are removed along with ALL of the so-called "green deal subsidies. Cut the budgets of the DOJ and FBI by 80%.
mcconnell needs to be impeached and thrown out of the gop republican party, he, Romney, Ronna, cotton, Murkowski and other need to be impeached
Not a bad idea. A lot of talk in Congress about rule changes. How about single topic bills and line vetoes to cut out all the useless fat and paybacks to donors.
Sure beats workin' for a livin', huh?
Voting Romney out ASAP!
we tried to primary Coryn in Texas but failed. People are either stupid or there is fraud. The Texas GOP stands up for this pro amnesty Rino, they could refuse to support him but they wont. I dont have the power or the money to influence.
This list is incomplete. You need to add Tim Scott, Jodi Earnest, Marsha Blackburn, Ted Cruz, Nikki Haley, and all other radio silent senators during Russia hoax and fake impeachment / entrapment schemes 1-6.
take away Dems election-enigma machine (neuter the voter fraud). Restore Kari.
I agree with you on supporting Kari Lake but man, lets' just NOT rip our own Conservative Senators who opposed this Bill and unfairly not give them any credit for ANYTHING so we Trumpers end up with Pres. Trump in a phone booth with no Senators at all! My Sen. Cruz isn't perfect all the time but comes really close and so does Sen Tim Scott as well as Sen Marsha blackburn whom I'm familiar with! We Trumpers need to show some love sometimes to our legislative fighters who are fighting the fight after having their numbers unfairly thinned out due to democRAT Party voter fraud in AZ, NV and GA! There was a red wave albeit not as great as we would have liked but man, IF WE CONSERVATIVES BECOME SO NEGATIVE ON BASHING OUR OWN, IT BECOMES NEGATIVE TO SUPPORT US WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT THE GLOBALIST BANKER CLIQUE NEW WORLD ORDER CROWD OF THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM OF DAVOS WANTS!
ALL HANDS ON DECK
Cease all efforts and redirect focus on Mitch McConnell and his 37 RINOs senators. First area of priority!!!! Stand down on all else!!!
TO KILL THE SNAKE CUT OFF PATHETIC SEN MITCH MCCONNELL AS GOP SENATE MINORITY LEADER AND GET A REAL CONSERVATIVE LIKE MY SEN TED CRUZ TO BE ITS NEEDED IDEOLOGICAL AND CHARISMATIC LEADER! WE NEED TO HAVE DISCIPLINE IN THE GOP CAUCUS AND ACKNOWLEDGE PRES. TRUMP AS OUR GOP POLITICAL LEADER AND ON THIS ISSUE BE UNITED AGAINST THIS KIND OF BILL! THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN PARTY DISCIPLINE AND THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION HAD THE RIGHT IDEA ALL ALONG WITH A CONTINUING RESOLUTION UNTIL THE GOP HOUSE WAS ORGANIZED!
