Trump blasts Dems’ $3.5 trillion ‘communist plan to kill America’

Warning that Americans “are being robbed in the dark” and must “wake up,” former President Donald Trump called the Democrats’ massive budget a “$3.5 trillion Communist Plan to Destroy America.”

The legislation, he said, will “destroy our borders and the rule of law” and “will raise taxes like we’ve never seen.”

The framework for the budget was approved by the Senate early Wednesday morning on party lines, 50-49, after the passage Tuesday of a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill. The approved resolution directs committees to hammer out a bill that would spend up to $3.5 trillion on progressive initiatives addressing issues such as illegal immigration, child care, education, health care and climate change.

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York said “the Democratic budget will bring a generational transformation to how our economy works for average Americans.”

The spending bill will go through a budget reconciliation process that will allow Democrats to approve the package with a simple majority, without any Republican votes, in the 50-50 Senate.

House members will return Aug. 23 to debate the bill, and Congress must approve it by Sept. 30 to avoid a government shutdown.

“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,” Trump said in his statement, issued through his Save America PAC.

The legislation, he said, is an an attack against “our Nation, on our communities, and on the American Dream.”

The former president noted it would grant amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.

“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,” he said.

“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!”

On Tuesday, Trump directed criticism at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for allowing passage of the $1.2 trillion “non-infrastructure bill” on Tuesday, which was supported by 19 Republican senators.

“He has given up all of his leverage for the big whopper of a bill that will follow,” Trump said in a statement. “I have quietly said for years that Mitch McConnell is the most overrated man in politics — now I don’t have to be quiet anymore. He is working so hard to give Biden a victory, now they’ll go for the big one, including the biggest tax increases in the history of our Country.”

At least one Democratic senator has “serious concerns” about the $3.5 trillion budget bill.

Sen. Joe Manchin said Wednesday that adding “trillions of dollars more to nearly $29 trillion of national debt, without any consideration of the negative effects on our children and grandchildren, is one of those decisions that has become far too easy in Washington,.”
