Desperate Trump Tries To Stop Biden’s Infrastructure Bill

In an act of desperation, Trump is trying to stop President Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill.

Donald Trump is trying to stop the Senate from passing President Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill, the passage of which would highlight a major failure of Trump’s sole presidential term.

Already the legislation has gone further under Biden than Trump, despite the former president’s promises that he was a major deal maker. Biden and congressional Democrats have offered up concrete infrastructure legislation, which Trump didn’t, and Biden has negotiated a bipartisan package with Senate Republicans, a task Trump also failed at while dealing with Democrats in Congress.

As the Senate voted to move forward with work on the Biden plan, Trump struck out at senators in his own party and demanded that they scuttle the deal.

“Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill is a disgrace,” Trump said in a statement and then added that it “…will be very hard for me to endorse anyone foolish enough to vote in favor of this deal.”

Trump appears to believe that he has enough power within the Republican Party that withholding his support will lead to Republican senators losing elections. While Trump is popular with Republicans – but not with Democrats or Independents – his chosen candidates have not always won in inter-party primaries.

While Democrats widely back infrastructure investments, Republicans will have to decide if fear of Trump will prevent them from enacting popular measures to rebuild crumbling roads and bridges across the country.
