Some GOP Upset at Trump’s Approach to COVID Aid

A new report indicated that some members of the GOP are growing frustrated with President Trump’s approach to COVID relief.

According to The Hill:

House Republicans are expressing frustration over President Trump’s order on Tuesday that aides end negotiations with Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on a coronavirus stimulus package, a move that some worry will hurt them in the 2020 elections.

The president’s decision to pull out of negotiations, which was not broadly supported by House Republicans, flipped the narrative the GOP has been hitting Democrats with — that Pelosi was blocking the deal. Instead, multiple GOP lawmakers described the tweet as a “disaster” that served as a self-inflicted wound ahead of Election Day.

“I disagree with the President,” Rep. John Katko (R-N.Y.) said in a statement. “With lives at stake, we cannot afford to stop negotiations on a relief package.”

It seems possible that Trump is getting the message. In late-night tweets after he said the talks should end, the president appeared to reverse course, at least to a degree.

The GOP did acknowledge that they understand why Trump is frustrated with the negotiations because he believes Democrats aren’t reacting with enough urgency.

I firmly believe that Nancy Pelosi is not of sound mind any longer. Her hatred for a POTUS that loves America has gotten the best of her. I am betting she does not even love herself. But that is JMO

What these WHINO RINOs need to do is explain to their constituents what Nancy Pelosi is demanding to be included that has nothing to do with COVID and that we don’t have the money to just hand out another $2T for Democrats’ socialism.

Who cares what the RINOs and DEMONRATS say. They’ve been against OUR PRESIDENT since he and Melania rode down the elevator that memorable June day. All they have done has been obstructionists. Look what RINO SOH Ryan gave us…the DEMONRAT House majority. He all but personally handed Pelooooser the gavel by his constant obstruction of PRESIDENT Trump’s agenda. McCain was no prize, either, and Romney is filling McCain’s idiocy.

If the Dems. would stick to Covid relief instead of trying to get money for their pet projects perhaps there would be no problem. They are all part of the swamp that Trump wants to rid DC of and they know it. They will try anything to get what they want be it legal or nor ethical or not. Mostly they are NOT ethical or truthful.

They can join the Democrats and tell their constituents to vote for a real conservative Republican. The Democratic bill is nothing short of to bail out spending for their failing blue states that have destroyed their states through such spending and taxes as she wants to do for America. Let her walk through her city filled with mentally ill homeless on the streets, littered with garbage, drug needles, and feces to see what she and Democrats has created for HER people.

It amazes me every day how the Democrats win the war on disinformation and distorting the truth without ever being called to account. Republicans need to grow a pair and put a group of people in charge of countering the crap coming from the Democrats (like Ben Shapiro, Candace Owens, Michelle Malkin, etc.) and use it!

Okay now. It hasn’t been P.T.holding up the Stimulus Package for Americans but that Witch Pelosi who kept trying to pad that Stimulus legislation full of Democrat B.S. COME ON NOW! Who is slinging these false statements abt P.T.? Because that is 100% LIES!

THE REASON HE STOPPED NEGOTIATIONS WITH Pignosi is because she is stalling, holding the stimulus package hostage until it is stuffed with Leftist B.S. that she can’t get passed any other way! Everyone knows this!

So whoever is saying our President is responsible for not getting the Stimulus Package out to Americans, needs to be punched in the nose! Why? Because that person is lying and trying to make our President look responsible for not caring about Americans. That, my friends, is 100% B.S.

If you need a scapegoat to blame for not passing the Stimulus Package, aim at Pelosi for playing her dem games instead of truly caring about Americans needs. But that isn’t something new is it? The dems have NEVER cared about anyone but themselves and they aren’t starting now that Americans need their help! That’s who they are and what they do. Anti-American all the way…

I think those republicans are getting terrible advice. We all know they have tried repeatedly, and that the dems will only approve something that shells out billions of dollars to special interest leftist groups, like BLM, etc., and give money to their own pals that have destroyed their cities by bending over for terrorist groups. The President probably, as did I, saw the possibility that republicans would revert to their old habit of caving just so they can say they did something, and that tactic has always screwed American citizens.

Democrats refuse to negotiate in good faith and our President has had enough. Pelosi wants her poison pills and the h&^% with American citizens. President Trump has stated that he wants one item bills directly related to Covid, not the pile of crap Pelosi’s cabal wants.
Grow a pair Republicans and HAMMER that point home at every opportunity.
