The infrastructure bill is a compromise too costly, according to former President Donald Trump.
So Trump is praising those bold enough to not give in to the pressure.
“Congratulations to Senator Bill Hagerty in remaining true to ‘AMERICA FIRST!’” said Trump in his statement.
After stalling the bill, Hagerty responded. “I could not, in good conscience, allow that to happen at this hour,” said Hagerty. “Especially when the objective of the majority is to hurry up and pass this bill so that they can move quickly to their $3.5 trillion tax-and-spend spree designed to implement the Green New Deal and increase Americans’ dependence on the government, so I objected.”
“I wasn’t elected by the people of Tennessee to be the most popular person in the Senate. I was elected to stand up for their interests,” said Hagerty. “I can’t in good conscience vote to accelerate a flawed bill that puts us another quarter of a trillion-plus in debt, especially when we haven’t had an opportunity to dig in and understand its substance or economic ramifications.”
Trump agrees with Hagerty on the bill.
“This is not an infrastructure bill, this is the beginning of the Green New Deal. The bill I proposed, which Mitch McConnell couldn’t do anything with, was pure infrastructure. I want what is best for America, not what’s best for the Communist Democrat Party,” said Trump.
