In a bipartisan vote, the U.S. Congress recently approved a $1.7 trillion omnibus bill that averts a government shutdown. It also seeks to modernize the 1887 Electoral Count Act to avoid another attempted coup like the one perpetrated by former president Donald Trump.
As noted by the Associated Press, the measure is “the most significant legislative response Congress has made yet to Trump’s aggressive efforts to upend the 2020 election results, and a step that has been urged by the House select committee that conducted the most thorough investigation into the violent siege of the Capitol.”
In response, Trump took to his social media site on Monday to attack Democrats as “Marxists” and rip GOP leader Mitch McConnell for not waiting “10 more days” and allowing House Republicans to derail the bill. He also took a jab at McConnell’s wife, referring to her as “COCO CHOW.”
“The Marxist Democrats must have something really big on Mitch McConnell in order to get him and some of his friendly “Republican” Senators to pass the horrendous “All Democrat, All the Way” OMINOUS Bill,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “It gives Border Security to other countries, but ZERO $’s to the U.S., it fully funds the corrupt “Justice” Department, FBI (which RIGGED the Presidential Election!), and even the Trump Hating Special “Prosecutor.” It is also a massive giveaway & capitulation to CHINA, making COCO CHOW so happy!
He added: “If the Old Crow waited just 10 days, the Republican Majority in the House could have made the “Ominous” Bill MUCH, MUCH, MUCH BETTER. Just another win for the Democrats, Mitch, that wouldn’t have happened if “Trump” were President!”
In a previous post, Trump also lashed out at the media for reporting on his already failing 2024 campaign.
“Contrary to Fake News reporting, I never asked Jared or Ivanka to be part of the 2024 Campaign for President and, in fact, specifically asked them not to do it – too mean and nasty with the Fake & Corrupt News and having to deal with some absolutely horrendous SleazeBags in the world of politics, and beyond,” Trump wrote. “There has never been anything like this “ride” before, and they should not be further subjected to it. I ran twice, getting millions more Votes the second time (RIGGED), & am doing it again!”
