All hell is breaking loose in Washington.
Democrats and establishment Republicans thought they rolled over President Trump and scored a major victory.
But now Donald Trump hit Nancy Pelosi with a nasty surprise that left her jaw on the ground.
Congressional leaders sprung a 2.3 trillion-dollar spending scheme on their members with just hours to vote on the bill which means no one read it before passage.
The bill passed with just 53 votes against in the House and six in the Senate as Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell pressured lawmakers to approve the big government gravy train under the false pretenses it provided necessary coronavirus relief.
But after the bill passed it became clear this was the swamp using the fig leaf of $600 checks to the American people to fund their pet projects like bailing out the Kennedy Center, funneling millions of dollars to Pakistan for gender programs and setting national horse racing standards.
Donald Trump pulled one of his patented made-for-TV surprises by releasing a video of a speech from the White House rejecting the bill and demanding Congress make changes to take care of the American people instead of special interests.
“Throughout the summer, Democrats cruelly blocked COVID relief legislation in an effort to advance their extreme, left-wing agenda, and influence the election,” Trump explained. “Then, a few months ago, Congress started negotiations on a new package to get urgently-needed help to the American people. It’s taken forever.”
“Congress found plenty of money for foreign countries, lobbyists and special interests while sending the bare minimum to the American people who need it. It was not their fault,” the President added. “It was China’s fault, not their fault.”
President Trump ripped Congress for spending just $166 billion of $900 billion of supposed coronavirus “relief” on direct payments to the American people.
“Despite all of this wasteful spending, and much more the $900 billion package provides hardworking taxpayers with only $600 each in relief payments. And not enough money is given to small businesses, and in particular restaurants, whose owners have suffered so grievously. They were only given a deduction for others to use,” the President continued.
President Trump demanded Congress revise the bill to include $2,000 payments to individuals and $4,000 for couples as well as eliminating wasteful ‘America Last’ spending provisions.
“I’m asking Congress to amend this bill,” the President continued, “and to send me a suitable bill, or that next administration will have to deliver a Covid relief package and maybe that administration will be me.”
In 2016 President Trump campaigned on looking out for the forgotten man and woman.
This speech was President Trump making good on that promise.
