President Trump has called on Senate Republicans to hold the line on tax increases and keep Trump-era tax cuts in place. In a statement on Friday, the 45th president said Republicans should not be making deals on the fake infrastructure proposals being put forward by Democrats.
He noted all tax increases will just go toward the “Green New Deal Marxist agenda.” He added, Republican in Name Only (RINO) Republicans should stop negotiating the infrastructure deal, saying they’re being played by the “radical left Democrats.”
“They will give you nothing,” pleaded Trump. He added he’s never seen anything so easy to win politically.

Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has refused to acknowledge GOP suggestions for the bill, saying she will not bring them up until the Senate passes a $6 trillion bill. Democrats continue to back their larger spending agenda, claiming it is necessary to fund climate change and social care programs.
