Trump Lashes Out at McConnell Failing to Deliver $2k Payout


President Trump is on the warpath again after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Tuesday blocked consideration of a House bill that would deliver a desperately needed $2,000 stimulus payment to the neediest Americans and $4,000 to married couples.


Any chance of increasing the stimulus checks from the authorized $600 to $2,000 per adult vanished this afternoon when Mitch McConnell refused to bring the bill to the Senate’s floor passed by the House of Representatives yesterday.

In doing so, he prompted President Trump to lash out at him after the Republican Senators ignored his demand for the increased payout he has requested by warning that “the GOP has a death wish” …

“Unless Republicans have a death wish, and it is also the right thing to do, they must approve the $2000 payments ASAP. $600 IS NOT ENOUGH!” 

McConnell may have also doomed the re-election of both Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue (R-GA) despite the fact both claimed to support the increase in the stimulus payout.

McConnell has made it abundantly clear that the increase supported by 78% of the American people cannot become a reality unless the two Democrats running against the Georgia incumbents win the runoff and put the Democrat caucus lead by Senator Chuck Schumer in control of the U.S. Senate.

Senators Charles  Schumer and Bernie Sanders two Democratic proponents of the increased stimulus check arduously debated on the Senate floor to persuade McConnell to introduce the bill.  American working families simply can’t wait any longer for the increase to take place and that the House of Representatives passed the increase by 2/3 majority with the help of House Republicans.

Charles E. Schumer said…

“There’s a major difference in saying you support $2,000 checks and fighting to put them into law,” he said. “The House bill is the only way to deliver these stimulus checks before the end of session. Will Senate Republicans stand against the House of Representatives, the Democratic majority in the Senate and the president of their own party to prevent these $2,000 checks from going out the door?”

Republican senators proponents include Georgia’s two embattled,  David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, who find themselves in tough reelection battles that will decide the fate of the chamber next week. GOP Sen. Deb Fischer of Nebraska also lent support Tuesday, declaring that “people are hurting and we need to get them more aid.”

McConnell created a ruse of tying two poison pill issues to the stimulus increase to kill it.  Election fraud that did not take place and the purging of Section 230, which would curtail social media giants’ ability to edit or label outright lies published on their platforms, will make it impossible to get the votes needed to increase the payouts the vast majority of Americans are demanding from $600 to $2,000.  

President Trump’s lashing out could backfire on McConnell. Stalling the vote and not delivering the $2,000 checks comes after Senator Loeffler’s Fox interview said…

 “I’ve stood by the president 100% of the time. I’m proud to do that, and I’ve said we need to get relief to Americans now, and I will support that.”

Tying impossible strings on delivering the $2,000 payout will give the two Democrat candidates the ability to bombard Georgia with TV and radio ads telling Georgia voters that voting for them is the only way to guarantee they will get the $2,000 checks. They will also point out that Perdue and Loeffler have no influence or power in the U.S. Senate as long as McConnell remains Senate Majority leader.

President Trump knows and is fully aware that 78% of the American people support the $2,000 per adult payout may also turn on McConnell and tell his supporters in Georgia not to vote to re-elect Sens. Perdue and Loeffler. The message could be to stay home to punish McConnell by taking away his Senate majority. The animosity between the two men is at the boiling point. Trump wants to punish McConnell for refusing to deliver the $2,000 payouts.

Runoff elections are usually marked by a lower turnout, especially by Independents and Democrats. That always benefit the Republicans, but in this situation, the Democratic Candidates Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock may get a surge of voters who come out to make sure they get the $2,000 instead of the $600 and a stunted turnout of Republican voters who follow Trump’s desire to punish McConnell.

McConnell also faces comments from many GOP Senators who support a standalone bill to increase the payout from $600 to $2,000 like the one made by Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who worked to convince Trump to sign the relief bill.  In an interview Monday, Graham said that if there were a standalone vote on the $2,000 checks, it would pass the Senate with the necessary 60 votes.
