Former President Donald Trump spoke out late Friday night to send a warning to the "RINO Republicans" saying that they must stop negotiations with the Democrats on a bipartisan infrastructure deal and that they are "just being played."
"RINO Republicans should stop negotiating the infrastructure deal – you are only being played by the radical left Democrats – they will not give you anything!" Trump said, according to The Hill. RINO is an acronym that stands for "Republican In Name Only".
"It is very important that Senate Republicans do not allow our hard-earned tax cuts to be terminated or changed in any way, shape, or form," he added. “You shouldn't make agreements to raise taxes on the bogus Democratic infrastructure proposals, almost all of which fit the ridiculous Marxist agenda of the Green New Deal. Leave the Trump administration's tax cuts where they are. "
Majority leader in the Senate Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) Has said that after the Senate returns from the July 4th two-week hiatus, he would like a vote on two infrastructure bills. The first is a bipartisan deal that would spend $ 1.2 trillion over eight years, but the second is a much larger reconciliation package with democratic priorities.

Biden stands by the Democrats
Shortly after Joe Biden and a group of bipartisan senators reached an agreement on infrastructure, the president announced that he also wants Congress to pass a much larger infrastructure package that highlights the Democrats' priorities.
As for the minority leader in the Senate? Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has not ruled out that the bipartisan bill could get 60 votes.
"If that gets paid off credibly instead of adding it to the debt, I think there is a way forward for that part," he said.

However, McConnell also added earlier this week that if the Democrats attempted to pass their larger infrastructure bill without a Republican vote through the Senate, Republicans would start a “hell of a fight”.
“The era of non-partisanship in this area is over. … This is not going to be bipartisan, "McConnell said. “This is going to be one hell of a fight over what this country should look like in the future, and it will unfold here over the next few weeks. I don't think we had any major disagreement between the two parties. "
