Donald Trump is lashing out against Joe Biden’s latest infrastructure victory after Senate Democrats passed the framework for a $3.5 trillion bill in a 50-49 party line vote around 4 a.m. Wednesday morning. ‘Good morning, America! While you were all sleeping, the Radical Democrats advanced a plan that will be known as the $3.5 trillion Communist Plan to Destroy America,’ the ex-president wrote in a late Wednesday morning statement.He called the legislation an attack against ‘our Nation, on our communities, and on the American Dream.’
Trump took aim at specific portions of the bill that would grant amnesty for millions of migrant workers and allocates $67 billion toward environmental initiatives.
‘It destroys our Borders and the rule of law by granting dangerous amnesty that will flood America’s beautiful cities. It will overwhelm our schools, and make our Nation less safe,’ the former president wrote.
He said it would ‘destroy’ US borders and told Americans it’s ‘time to wake up’
‘And don’t forget the crazy Green New Deal. America, you are being robbed in the dark of night. It’s time to wake up!’
Trump also claimed it ‘raises taxes like we have never seen, while also making many things you buy everyday more expensive (gas, groceries, and much more).’
Democrats led by Majority Leader Chuck Schumer were able to pass the bill after 14 grueling hours of debate. Republican opponents have called it everything from ‘Bernie’s budget’ to ‘a freight train to socialism.’
The $3.5 trillion framework makes no mention of the Green New Deal, but includes investments for clean vehicles, funding for ‘low-income solar and other climate-friendly technologies’ and clean water initiatives.
It allocates $107 billion toward the Judiciary Committee for ‘lawful permanent status for qualified immigrants,’ funding for ‘smart and effective’ border security and an initiative to curb community violence.
Democrats said the hefty budget bill would be funded by raising taxes on high-earning families and corporations.
Biden previously pledged that taxes won’t go up for households making less than $400,000.
