Why did Old Raven Mitch McConnell vote for a terrible Socialist Democratic Infrastructure Plan and induce others in his Party to do the same, when he was unable to get a great Infrastructure Plan that wanted to be presented by me and the Republican Party? “Trump ventured in a statement.

Trump promised a $ 1 trillion infrastructure bill when he first ran for president in 2016. He later looked at a $ 1.5 trillion infrastructure package in 2018, but envisioned that the federal government would spend $ 200 billion to stimulate investment from other sources.

Trump lashed out Tuesday at McConnell for failing to pass his infrastructure bill when Republicans controlled the White House, Senate and House.

“He continually said he couldn’t pass it, just like I had to go around him for the very popular Southern Border Wall to be built,” Trump said, referring to his decision in 2019 to declare a national emergency to access the funds that the Congress blocked by the border wall.

“All the infrastructure money, $ 2 trillion, would have gone into actual infrastructure (roads, bridges, tunnels, airports, etc.),” ​​Trump said of his infrastructure plans while he was president.

Trump called for a $ 2 trillion infrastructure plan in March of last year as part of the federal response to the coronavirus pandemic. Senate Republicans never seriously considered that proposal after passing the $ 2.2 trillion CARES Act in late March 2020 to respond to the economic shutdown forced by COVID-19.

McConnell shrugged the last time Trump called him “Old Crow” because his longtime colleague Sen.

“It’s actually a great honor,” McConnell said when asked about Trump’s insult.

“Old Crow is Henry Clay’s favorite bourbon,” he added, referring to the legendary Kentucky senator who was known as the “Great Compromise” because of his efforts to bridge state differences before the Civil War.

McConnell on Tuesday praised the bipartisan infrastructure bill as a “godsend” to his home state, noting earlier in the week that it would provide an estimated $ 4 billion in federal funding for Kentucky.

“We have many infrastructure needs, both in rural areas and with large bridges. It’s a blessing for Kentucky, ”he said at a local event.

Trump also criticized McConnell on Tuesday for giving Democrats a “two-month hiatus, long enough for them to figure it all out, when they were completely ready to withdraw,” although the Republican leader had no role in the decision. Democrats in the House of Representatives. he raised the bipartisan $ 1 trillion bill for more than two months before sending it to Biden’s desk on Friday.
