Ex-President Donald Trump attacked Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Republicans who voted for the infrastructure bill on Sunday.

Trump stated in a statement that all Republicans who voted to prolong the life of Democrats should be ashamed.

13 House Republicans voted along with Democrats on Friday to approve the bipartisan $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill. In August, the Senate passed the Bill with 19 Republicans including McConnell voting for it along with every Democrat.

The legislation provided funds for roads, bridges and highways as well as electric vehicles, clean electricity, and high-speed internet.

Trump was critical about GOP senators who voted for the bill. He said that they "voted thinking helping Democrats is such an amazing thing to do, so politically right." They don't understand it!"

Former president called Republican lawmakers who voted for the measure RINOs (or Republicans in name only) and said that their support would allow Democrats to rely on them to pass the $1.75 billion social spending bill.

Trump doubled down his criticism of McConnell's offer to Democrats a two month lift on the debt ceiling. He said that this "allowed Democrats time to deal things out at our Country's expense and the Republican Party"!

Democrats had until December to come up with a plan to raise the debt limit without Republican support. The debt ceiling allows the government borrow money to pay its bills. A decline in it could lead to a recession.

Trump and McConnell also clashed repeatedly in the last year.

McConnell was called "gutless" by the former president and "stupid fucker", for not helping him win the election. McConnell previously stated that Trump was "practically, morally and financially responsible" for the Jan 6 Capitol Riot.
