Last week, Trump ripped off a scathing rebuke of the members of the GOP that voted to pass the infrastructure bill.
The bill would have failed if Republicans held the line, dealing Pelosi and Biden a massive blow.
For some reason, even though she voted in favor of the legislation, Rep. Malliotakis (R-N.Y.) was left off Trump’s hit list.
Give Her a Pass
Trump did not go into great detail as to why the New York Republican was given a pass.
All he stated was, “She spoke to me. I still support her.”
Malliotakis added, “I spoke to President Trump. He’s still with me. I’m still with him. It’s important to me.”
Last week I stated that while I did not support the legislation personally, it was understandable why some Republicans did.
In Malliotakis’ case, New York is receiving the lion’s share of the money, so the actual infrastructure aspect of the bill will help her constituents.
Had she voted against the bill, it would give her 2022 opponent something to use against her, and now that avenue of attack has been removed.
