Former President Trump has slammed Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell this Tuesday for supporting the over 1 trillion-dollar spending bill, stating that the Senate Leader was “incapable” of giving an infrastructure program when he was in the White House.
“Why has this Old Crow Mitch McConnell supported a horrible Democrat Socialist Spending Plan, and caused others in his Party to do the same, when he was incapable of helping an Infrastructure Program wanting to be introduced by me and the GOP? He continuously said he could not get passed, just like I had to struggle to get the Southern Wall built (which led to great delay—but now it could be built in under a month by Biden),” Trump said in his comment.
“All of this Infrastructure money, up to $2 Trillion, would have gone into true Infrastructure (bridges, roads, airports and tunnels). Also, why did McConnell give the Dems a two-month pause, just long enough for them to work it all out, when they were about to fold?,” Trump asked.
In reply to Donald Trump’s nickname, McConnell said to CNN that it a great “honor,” and referenced legendary Kentucky lawmaker and former Sec. of State, Henry Clay.
“Actually, it is quite an honor,” he said to the outlet. “Old Crow is Henry Clay’s favorite drink.”
This week, McConnell called the Democrat $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill, which was passed in the House last Friday and is now awaiting President Biden’s signature, a “godsend” for his state of Kentucky.

Trump said that McConnell was a “dumb son of a bitch” at a meeting at Mar-a-Lago earlier this year, Politico reported.
And in January, McConnell slammed Donald Trump and his supporters for spreading misinformation about the 2020 presidential election, saying his rhetoric caused the so-called mob to storm the United States Capitol on January 6.
McConnell also fired back at Donald Trump in March for taking the credit for his 2020 re-election, saying that he was under by 15 points in 2014 and he won without Donald Trump’s help.
