Trump Urges GOP Senate to Risk U.S. Default on Debt Ceiling

view original post

Former twice impeached and increasingly disgraced President Donald J. Trump urged Republicans on Wednesday to use the U.S. debt ceiling to hold the country hostage in an attempt to block President Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda.

Former President Trump failed to live up to his scores of promises to deliver a comprehensive bi-partisan infrastructure bill during his four years in office. There is no rejuvenation of airports, existing bridges, and new infrastructure, including a new electric grid or expanding the broad rural brand. It was an election promise he knew he needed to fulfill, as evidenced by the dozen times he promised “an infrastructure week.” It just never materialized.

                     Trump’s bigly infrastructure achieved by Biden

So when President Biden went to work on delivering a $1.2 Trillion infrastructure package to the American people, Trump and his Republican allies in Congress tried everything they could to block the bipartisan infrastructure framework.

Now, as Biden inches closer to delivering the second half of his infrastructure package via a reconciliation bill —Trump has emailed a statement urging Republicans to keep Biden from securing a victory. The email is another example of Trump’s desperation and outright hatred for Senate Majority Leader Senator Mitch McConnell and other Congressional Republicans. They want to get things accomplished for the American people…

“When the Broken Old Crow, Mitch McConnell, agreed to a two-month extension, he allowed the Democrats to get their act together and pass the $1.2 Trillion ‘Non-Infrastructure’ Green New Deal Bill.”

“This was all allowed by Mitch McConnell’s incompetence, and now I understand that a couple of Republican Senators may get on board so that they can have yet another and even bigger victory for the Democrats, while at the same time ensuring massive Inflation and the destruction of our Country as we know it,” Trump complained. “This is what happens when you allow a guy who lost an election to take over the Office of the President. He had no mandate, but they’re changing our Country and everything it stands for.”

“Mitch McConnell couldn’t stop the first Bill, so 19 Senators, including himself, joined in. That’s what he does—if you can’t beat them, join them. If he wasn’t so stupid and didn’t give the two-month extension, he could have stopped it all,” Trump said. “Now he and his RINO friends will allow a much bigger and far worse Bill to pass, ruining our Country while giving the Democrats a great political lift, all at the same time.”

Trump targets McConnell as the villain allowing both parties to deliver the long-awaited infrastructure repairs and new projects that both sides have repeatedly promised. To Trump, it’s all about politics and not about the welfare and economic prosperity of the American people…

“This is the Broken Old Crow’s fault. He could have won it all using the Debt Ceiling—they were ready to fold. Now the Democrats have a big victory and the wind at their back. McConnell is a fool, and he damn well better stop their ‘Dream of Communism Bill’ and keep his Senators in line, or he should resign now, something he should have done a long time ago. Use the Debt Ceiling like it should have been used, you Old Broken Crow, to do so would hurt our Country far less than this horrible Bill. Any Republican in the House or Senate who votes for this bill will never get a Trump Endorsement.”

In October, Trump also urged Republicans to use the debt ceiling as leverage. He was willing to allow the U.S. to default on its national debt for the first time in history to derail the $1.2 Trillion infrastructure bill just signed into law by President Biden.

Trump was willing to ignite a worldwide financial collapse, possibly a deep recession or depression, to prevent President Biden and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle from preventing an economic meltdown by raising the debt ceiling. He urged at the time before that vote in the U.S. Senate…

“Republican Senators, do not vote for this terrible deal being pushed by folding Mitch McConnell. Stand strong for our Country. The American people are with you!”

McConnell and ten other Senate Republicans joined with Democrats to pass a debt ceiling extension. In August, lawmakers on both sides of the political divide were on the verge of finally delivering the infrastructure bill both Democrats and Republicans, including Trump, had promised. Trump desperately tried to short circuit the progress and legislation…

“Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill is a disgrace. If Mitch McConnell were smart, which we’ve seen no evidence of, he would use the debt ceiling card to negotiate a good infrastructure package.”

“Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill will be used against the Republican Party in the upcoming elections in 2022 and 2024. It will be very hard for me to endorse anyone foolish enough to vote in favor of this deal.”

In the end, 18 Republicans joined McConnell to pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill.

All of this proves Trump has one goal. He wants to destroy the United States before one or more jurisdictions, including in New York, Georgia, or the District of Columbia’s hands down a criminal indictment with his name on it. He’s so desperate that he is willing to destroy the financial security of hundreds of millions of Americans. Proving his niece Dr. Mary Trump’s professional and personal assertions that Trump is every bit the malignant narcissist, delusion, and sociopathic monster she alleges he is.
