President Donald Trump has kept the pressure on Senate Republicans amid his campaign election challenges and a push for $2,000 stimulus checks that would be a tough order for the party's fiscal hawks.
Trump tweeted Saturday:
"If a Democrat Presidential Candidate had an Election Rigged & Stolen, with proof of such acts at a level never seen before, the Democrat Senators would consider it an act of war, and fight to the death. Mitch & the Republicans do NOTHING, just want to let it pass. NO FIGHT!"
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has proved to be less a supporter of the president this fall, saying he considered the White House off limits during coronavirus outbreaks, willfully jumping to defend Joe Biden as president-elect amid election challenges, and telling Republicans in the Senate to not jump on the effort to contest the Electoral College on Jan 6.
McConnell has said he considers Biden a friend.
Trump's comments came in a tweetstorm from the winter White House of Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida:
"I will not stand by and watch this travesty of a bill happen without reigning in Big Tech. End Section 230 now, before it is too late. So bad for our Country. Show courage, and do what's right!!!"
"Our $740 defense bill is a gift to China, Russia & Big Tech. It fails to terminate the internationally dangerous Section 230, won't allow us to bring our troops back home (where they belong), renames & destroys our forts & National Monuments, & makes 5G almost impossible!"
"The 'Justice' Department and the FBI have done nothing about the 2020 Presidential Election Voter Fraud, the biggest SCAM in our nation's history, despite overwhelming evidence. They should be ashamed. History will remember. Never give up. See everyone in D.C. on January 6th."
"Where the hell is the Durham Report? They spied on my campaign, colluded with Russia (and others), and got caught. Read the Horowitz Reports about Comey & McCabe. Even the Fake News @nytimes said 'bad'. They tried it all, and failed, so now they are trying to steal the election!"
"The U.S. Supreme Court has been totally incompetent and weak on the massive Election Fraud that took place in the 2020 Presidential Election. We have absolute PROOF, but they don't want to see it – No 'standing', they say. If we have corrupt elections, we have no country!"
"A young military man working in Afghanistan told me that elections in Afghanistan are far more secure and much better run than the USA's 2020 Election. Ours, with its millions and millions of corrupt Mail-In Ballots, was the election of a third world country. Fake President!"
"I simply want to get our great people $2000, rather than the measly $600 that is now in the bill. Also, stop the billions of dollars in 'pork'."
Congress is set to convene Monday to weigh the override of the presidential veto of the National Defense Authorization Act and reconsidering the stimulus impact payments, if not the foreign aid in the recently passed appropriations omnibus.
