Trump: ‘Unless Republicans Have a Death Wish,’ Approve $2K ‘ASAP’
President Donald Trump on Tuesday took aim at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., after the senator blocked a call for unanimous consent on raising stimulus checks to $2,000.
Trump tweeted Tuesday afternoon:
“Unless Republicans have a death wish, and it is also the right thing to do, they must approve the $2000 payments ASAP. $600 IS NOT ENOUGH! Also, get rid of Section 230 – Don’t let Big Tech steal our Country, and don’t let the Democrats steal the Presidential Election. Get tough!”
Earlier the same day he tweeted:
“Weak and tired Republican ‘leadership’ will allow the bad Defense Bill to pass. Say goodbye to VITAL Section 230 termination, your National Monuments, Forts (names!) and Treasures (inserted by Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren), 5G, and our great soldiers being removed and brought home from foreign lands who do NOTHING for us.
“A disgraceful act of cowardice and total submission by weak people to Big Tech. Negotiate a better Bill, or get better leaders, NOW! Senate should not approve NDAA until fixed!!!”
Trump signed the bill authorizing a second round of stimulus checks Sunday after he was unable to raise the amount beyond the $600 Congress agreed upon.
