Former President Donald Trump is railing against the 13 GOP members who supported President Biden’s infrastructure bill; the Don laid into them at a dinner event earlier this week. One of the 13 defectors, New York Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, was even in the audience and was “visibly shaken” according to the New York Post.
“The freshman congresswoman and a dozen other Republicans pushed the infrastructure bill to approval Friday in a 228-206 vote after some Democratic Party infighting that threatened to sink the plan. The Senate-approved bill had six Democrats voting no — meaning Republicans would’ve killed the measure if the caucus voted no in unison,” the Post reports.
“I love all the House Republicans. Well, actually I don’t love all of you. I don’t love the 13 that voted for Biden’s infrastructure plan,” Trump said during his speech, the Washington Post reported.
“His comments came just hours after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) told reporters in his home state of Kentucky that he was ‘delighted’ the bill will soon be signed into law, touting the improvements it would make to the state’s roads and bridges,” WaPo adds.
Trump also blasted Republicans in a statement released by his Save America PAC earlier this week.
“How about all of those Republican Senators that voted thinking that helping the Democrats is such a wonderful thing to do, so politically correct. They just don’t get it! Now they’ll go for the big kill — getting their second $1.9 Trillion Bill (really $5 Trillion) approved, again with RINO support. All Republicans who voted for Democrat longevity should be ashamed of themselves, in particular Mitch McConnell, for granting a two month stay which allowed the Democrats time to work things out at our Country’s, and the Republican Party’s, expense!”
