Whether Republicans in Congress want it or not, Donald Trump is giving them advice on how to handle Joe Biden and his Democrats as they meet to hammer out an infrastructure deal.
Essentially, Trump is telling the GOP to adopt one of his signature business tactics: When you can’t get an agreement, walk.
Trending Politics notes:
When Congress returns from their extended Fourth Of July holiday weekend, the top priority will be to resume negotiations over Joe Biden's signature 'infrastructure' bill, a mammoth boondoggle that remains stalled in the Senate. …
Earlier this week, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell vowed that Republicans would put up a 'hell of a fight', pointing out that the Democrats could move the bill through without any GOP support, a prospect that the Dems' progressive activist base has been clamoring for.
Ordinarily, a completely partisan cramdown of such a staggeringly costly package with far-reaching social engineering ramifications would be dangerous politically, but thanks to a gaggle of RINOs led by the treacherous twosome of failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Susan Collins of Maine, Biden and the Democrats were given the gift of the fig-leaf of bipartisanship by the grandstanding senators.
While some on the GOP side of the aisle were opposed to such an effort by Romney and his gang, the RINOs consummated their deal with the devil only to see the nation's 46th president immediately doublecross them by threatening to veto any bill that didn't include the left's Green New Deal giveaways.
There is a quick fix here, Trump said in a statement he put out via his Save America PAC, and it’s straight outta ‘the art of the deal.’
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 said. '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. Do not allow tax increases. Thinking about it, I have never seen anything so easy to win politically.
Also, RINO Republicans should stop negotiating the infrastructure deal—you are just being played by the Radical Left Democrats—they will give you nothing!
This man made trade deals with allies all over the world, was honing in on one with China, and renegotiated NAFTA, which no one believed he could do.
Maybe, just maybe, the Republicans could take some of his advice just this one time?
