Donald Trump rips Mitch McConnell for caving in to Democrats

The debt ceiling increase should be something Republicans firmly stand against. That’s not happening, and former President Donald Trump is calling out the GOP lawmakers who are caving.

Trump blasted Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in a statement after he gave into Democrats by agreeing to raise the debt ceiling, Newsmax reported. This has robbed the GOP of leverage to stop Democrats’ exorbitant spending.

“Mitch McConnell just folded on the debt ceiling, a total victory for the Democrats β€” didn’t use it to kill the $5 Trillion Dollar (real number!) Build Back Worse Bill that will essentially change the fabric of our country forever,” Trump charged in a statement. The former president has been making remarks through his Save America PAC.

”The Old Crow’s two-month extension, and the break up of the bill into two parts, gave the Democrats everything they needed,” Trump went on. ”The Dems would have folded completely if Mitch properly played his hand, and if not, the debt ceiling scenario would be far less destructive than the bill that will get passed,” Trump said.

”He has all the cards to win, but not the ‘guts’ to play them,” Trump said.Β ”Instead, he gives our country away, just like he did with the two Senate seats in Georgia, and the presidency itself. The Old Crow is a disaster!”

In a deal creatively brokered between McConnell and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), the Democrats were able to get 14 GOP senators to give their support to it, Fox News reported. This was enough to pass cloture with the measure expected to meet its finally approval by Friday.

There was no reason to give in to the Democrats on this issue that will allow them further success in their agenda. Trump is right that Republican leaders are spineless and have given away the store in exchange for absolutely nothing.
