For the second time in less than a week, 45th President Donald J. Trump demanded that House Republicans not fund any CR that funds the Biden DOJ’s witch hunts against Trump and his supporters. Matt Gaetz has promised to vacate the chair if the Speaker fails to defund Jack Smith.
Trump called out cowardly House Republicans, posting on TruthSocial, “The Republicans lost big on Debt Ceiling, got NOTHING, and now are worried that they will be BLAMED for the Budget Shutdown. Wrong!!! Whoever is President will be blamed, in this case, Crooked (as Hell!) Joe Biden! Our Country is being systematically destroyed by the Radical Left Marxists, Fascists, and Thugs.”
Trump continued, “UNLESS YOU GET EVERYTHING, SHUT IT DOWN! Close the Border, stop the Weaponization of “Justice,” and End Election Interference – WE MUST HAVE HONEST ELECTIONS. It’s time Republicans learned how to fight! Are you listening Mitch McConnell, the weakest, dumbest, and most conflicted “Leader” in U.S. Senate history? HE’S ALREADY GIVEN THE DEMOCRATS EVERYTHING, THEY CAN’T BELIEVE HOW LUCKY THEY GOT. WE NEED NEW, & REAL, REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE, NOT A CLONE OF MITCH, & WE NEED IT NOW!!!”
Matt Gaetz echoed Trump’s message, posting a photo of Trump’s post on X and writing, “Trump agrees with me. Not @SpeakerMcCarthy. No Continuing Resolution. Break the Fever. Hold the Line.”
