There has been some anxiety and confusion regarding the weight given to former President Donald Trump’s seal of approval. In the aftermath of the Texas congressional run which saw Trump-backed Republican Susan Wright lost to Jake Ellzey However, Americans were recently treated to lobbyist and political newcomer, Mike Carey, who, with the full support of Trump and having adopted a series of policy prescriptions one could describe as “Trumpian”, snuffed out 11 of GOP candidates for a seat at the House in Ohio. The Trump seal of approval still seems to hold a decent amount of political collateral.
It is in response to the supposedly “bipartisan” infrastructure bill, legislation on offer from the Biden administration that will burn in excess of well over 1 Trillion dollars that Trump said via a statement issued through his Save America PAC was a “disgrace” that Trump said he will happily withhold final support and, of course, that golden endorsement from and Republican who supports the plan. As of this writing, there are no fewer than 18 Republicans who have joined the 49 Democrats in favor of passing the legislation and thus adding themselves to the blacklist.
As Trump said in his statement “Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill will be used against the Republican Party in the upcoming elections in 2022 and 2024. It will be very hard for me to endorse anyone foolish enough to vote in favor of this deal,”. Trump went on to say that the bill was a gift to Democrats and finished by saying that only the morally anesthetized RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) would sherk their party and support the bill.
“Whether it’s the House or Senate, think twice before you approve this terrible deal. Republicans should wait until after the Midterms when they will gain all the strength they’ll need to make a good deal,” Trump said. It is widely believed by many political pundits that the GOP will seize control of the House after the 2022 midterms and, thus, would at that point added strength to their party.
