Democrats Attack Trump Over Not Signing Massive Spending and COVID-19 Relief Bill

Democrats are in full attack mode because President Trump has not signed the massive government spending bill that funds federal operations and money for COVID-19 relief.

President Trump slammed the bill that combined federal spending and COVID-19 relief as a “disgrace.”

The president criticized the bill for only giving Americas $600 as part of the COVID-19 relief package while foreign countries were to receive tens of millions of dollars.

President Trump called for Americans to get $2,000, saying, “Congress found plenty of money for foreign countries, lobbyists and special interests while sending the bare minimum to the American people.”

The president expressed his views on Twitter.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) jumped on the $2,000 check idea and wants to a pass a standalone bill but it avoids cutting any of the huge spending elements of the bill including foreign nations.

Connecticut Democrat Senator Chris Murphy claimed President Trump does’t care about Americans.

Michigan Democrat Representative Debbie Dingell used a Christmas Eve theme to criticize President Trump, saying, “It is not a silent night. All is not calm. For too many, nothing is bright, and for too many, they are not sleeping peacefully.”

On Christmas Day, the president continued to push for $2,000 checks for Americans.

Pelosi made a huge mistake by combining the two bills which made for an easy comparison of what Americans are getting versus foreign countries.

The Speaker sought to delay the COVID-19 relief bill until after the election but that tone deaf strategy engineered by Pelosi generated outrage that was expressed on Twitter.

Democrats can whine and complain as much as they want but President Trump cares about the forgotten men and women in the U.S. and that’s why he hasn’t signed the bill.
