Trump Warns GOP Lawmakers To Stop Negotiating With Dems On Infrastructure – You’re ‘Being Played’

Former President Donald Trump spoke out late on Friday night to send a warning to “RINO Republicans,” saying that they need to stop negotiating with Democrats over a bipartisan infrastructure deal and that they are “just being played.”

Trump Sounds Off

“RINO Republicans should stop negotiating the infrastructure deal—you are just being played by the Radical Left Democrats—they will give you nothing!” Trump said, according to The Hill. RINO is an acronym that stands for “Republican In Name Only.”

“Very important that Senate Republicans not allow our hard-earned tax reductions to be terminated or amended in an upward trajectory in any way, shape, or form,” he added. “They should not be making deals on increasing taxes for the fake infrastructure proposals being put forward by Democrats, almost all of which goes to the ridiculous Green New Deal Marxist agenda. Keep the Trump Administrations tax cuts just where they are.”

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has said that after the Senate returns from the two week Fourth of July recess, he wants a vote for two infrastructure bills. The first is a bipartisan deal, which would spend $1.2 trillion over eight years, but the second is a much larger reconciliation package with Democratic priorities.

Biden Stands By Democrats

Just after Joe Biden and group of bipartisan senators reached a deal on infrastructure, the president let it be known that he also wants Congress to pass a much larger infrastructure package spotlighting Democrat priorities.

As for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), he has not ruled out that the bipartisan bill could get 60 votes to pass. 

“If that’s credibly paid for, as opposed to adding it to the debt, I think there’s a way forward on that portion of it,” he said.

However, McConnell also added earlier this week that Republicans would bring on a “hell of a fight” if Democrats tried to pass their larger infrastructure bill through the Senate without votes from Republicans.

“The era of bipartisanship on this stuff is over. … This is not going to be done on a bipartisan basis,” McConnell said. “This is going to be a hell of a fight over what this country ought to look like in the future, and it’s going to unfold here in the next few weeks. I don’t think we’ve had a bigger difference of opinion between the two parties.”
