Video: Trump Slams “Wasteful And Unnecessary” Pork In COVID-19 Stimulus Bill

“It really is a disgrace”

President Trump appears to be vetoing the massive $900 billion coronavirus stimulus bill passed by Congress yesterday, slamming it for being full of “wasteful and unnecessary” items.

“Throughout the summer, Democrats cruelly blocked COVID relief legislation in an effort to advance their extreme left wing agenda and influence the election,” Trump announced.

He added that “it’s taken forever” to get a bill together, and now it “is much different than anticipated.”

“It really is a disgrace,” the President urged, demanding that Americans have stimulus checks upped to $2,000, while all manner of pork, including mountains of foreign aid, be stripped out of the legislation.

“Send me a suitable bill or else the next administration will have to deliver a COVID relief package and maybe that administration will be me and we will get it done,” Trump raged.

Watch:

Before the bill passed the Senate Tuesday, Senator Rand Paul, one of only six Republicans who voted against the legislation, slammed it as an ‘excessive’ waste of money, and said that all Republicans voting for it are no better than the ‘socialist’ Democrats they routinely criticise.

“When you vote to pass out free money, you lose your soul and you abandon forever any semblance of moral or fiscal integrity,” Paul urged.

Paul also noted that it would have been impossible for anyone to have read the bill:

Senator Ted Cruz also noted this, agreeing with Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

The difference, however, is that Paul and Cruz voted against the bill, where as AOC just voted in favor anyway.

The bill passed the House 359-53 and the Senate 92-6, but now it appears Trump will send it back.

Video: Reporter Asks White House If Americans’ Only Choice Is “$5 A Gallon Gas Or A $61,000 Electric Car?”

“Sounds like a painful transition”

The White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked Thursday to explain why the Biden Administration’s only solution to soaring gas prices seems to be to ask Americans to deal with it or spend upwards of $55,000 on an electric vehicle.

“A lot of people can’t afford a $61,000 electric car and they are also having a hard time affording gas right now. That sounds like a painful transition,” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy said to Jean-Pierre, referencing the several times Biden officials and the president himself have touted a ‘transition’ to green energy.

“We are in a transition to clean energy…it’s going to create jobs,” Jean-Pierre responded, sounding like a broken record.

“Yeah but who can afford an electric car? The average price is $61,000! Is that the choice $5 per gallon gas or a $61,000 electric car?” Doocy further inquired.

“That’s apples to oranges. It’s not the same,” she responded.

Jean-Pierre went on to tout Biden’s so called gas tax holiday, which even Democrats immediately dumped on Thursday:

After repeatedly blaming Vladimir Putin for America’s soaring gas prices and cost of living, and then attacking American energy companies to boot, Biden spent Thursday blaming gas station owners for high prices:

Seems like everyone except him and his administration is to blame.

    Pathetic: Only 11 Per Cent Believe Biden Narrative That Putin is to Blame For Record Gas Prices

    Majority blame the president.

    Only 11 per cent of Americans believe the Biden administration’s narrative that Vladimir Putin is to blame for record high gas prices, with the majority blaming Biden’s poor energy policies instead.

    A Rasmussen poll finds that 52 per cent of respondents think unaffordable gas prices are the fault of the president, with the vast majority rejecting the ‘Putin price hike’ excuse.

    The survey also found that 80 per cent of Republicans blame Biden for the energy crisis, while 54 per cent of Independents also say responsibility lies with the occupant of the Oval Office.

    29 per cent of respondents who didn’t blame Putin or Biden said greedy oil companies were the culprit.

    After the Biden administration’s attempt to blame the Russian leader failed to land, the White House has switched its rhetoric to start blaming oil companies, with Biden asserting the industry is “making more money than God.”

    The poll reveals that Americans are also unimpressed with the media’s attempt to prop up the failing Biden economy, with just 11 per cent saying it has gotten better, with 57 per cent rating his economic performance as “poor.”

    Biden loyalists have become increasingly absurd in trying to explain away gas price hikes and inflation, with former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers blaming people who downplay what happened on January 6.

    “The banana Republicans who are saying that what happened on January 6th was nothing or OK are undermining the basic credibility of our country’s institutions and that in turn feeds through, uh, for inflation,” said Summers.

    BlackRock CEO Larry Fink also ludicrously claimed “nationalism” was to blame for inflation, asserting, “The rise– whether you call it nationalism or the rise of this belief that we have to focus on communities that have been devastated by globalization, we need to find ways of creating better jobs for more Americans, that in itself is inflationary.”

    As we highlighted earlier, more emergency services in the U.S. are having to limit the amount of 911 calls that they are responding to in person because of record high gas prices.

    Video: More Emergency Services Not Responding to 911 Calls Due To Soaring Gas Prices

    Wasn’t this what Democrats wanted?

    More emergency services in the U.S. are having to limit the amount of 911 calls that they are responding to in person because of record high gas prices in Joe Biden’s America.

    NBC News reports that responders are cutting key services in order to save on costs.

    Those services include patrol reductions, postponing building inspections, delaying training courses for staff and even not physically responding to emergency calls.

    Watch:

    As we previously noted, sheriff’s departments and police everywhere are blowing through their gas budgets and having to find ways of recouping the costs.

    Wasn’t this what Democrats wanted though? To defund the police. Well now they got it, just in a more round about way.

    Gas prices have rocketed beyond $5 per gallon nationwide, according to AAA data and have more than doubled since Joe Biden entered the White House.
