Former President Donald Trump again panned the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package as a “terrible deal” Wednesday, shortly before the Senate voted to begin debate on the measure.
“Hard to believe our Senate Republicans are dealing with the Radical Left Democrats in making a so-called bipartisan bill on ‘infrastructure,’ with our negotiators headed up by SUPER RINO Mitt Romney,” raged the 45th president in an emailed statement. “This will be a victory for the Biden Administration and Democrats, and will be heavily used in the 2022 election. It is a loser for the USA, a terrible deal, and makes the Republicans look weak, foolish, and dumb. It shouldn’t be done.”
Approximately 90 minutes after Trump sent out his statement, the Senate voted 67-32 to end the filibuster on a motion to proceed to the measure. Seventeen Republicans joined all 50 Democrats in voting to begin debate.
The test vote came exactly one week after a similar motion to proceed was blocked by Republicans on the grounds that the legislation wasn’t ready. (Read more from “Trump Slams ‘Terrible’ Infrastructure Deal” HERE)
