Donald Trump has lit the Washington, D.C. swamp on fire with a recent statement where the former president warned about the Democrats and their socialist $3.5 trillion spending plan.
The 45th president released a statement on August 11th where he blasted the Democrats for their irresponsible spending push.
According to Trump, the Democrats’ wasteful spending package will cause destruction in communities around the U.S. and the country as a whole, and ultimately destroy the American Dream.
Despite pushback from Republicans, the $3.5 trillion budget proposal was approved by lawmakers with a party-line vote, 50-49. The proposal will fuel the push for socialism in America, according to Donald Trump and other conservatives, as it would allocate billions of dollars toward government-sponsored childcare, Medicare, climate change, and other social safety net programs.
“It will overwhelm our schools, and make our nation less safe,” the former president stated. “It raises taxes like we have never seen, while also making many things you buy everyday more expensive (gas, groceries, and much more).”

There are still several hurdles to jump through before the bill is officially passed.
NPR reports: “House leaders announced their chamber will return from summer recess in two weeks to vote on the fiscal blueprint, which contemplates disbursing the $3.5 trillion over the next decade. Final congressional approval, which seems certain, would protect a subsequent bill actually enacting the outline’s detailed spending and tax changes from a Republican filibuster in the 50-50 Senate, delays that would otherwise kill it.”
Donald Trump’s full statement
“Good morning, America! While you were all sleeping, the Radical Democrats advanced a plan that will be known as the $3.5 trillion Communist Plan to Destroy America. This legislation is an assault on our Nation, on our communities, and on the American Dream.
It destroys our Borders and the rule of law by granting dangerous amnesty that will flood America’s beautiful cities. It will overwhelm our schools, and make our Nation less safe. It raises taxes like we have never seen, while also making many things you buy everyday more expensive (gas, groceries, and much more). And don’t forget the crazy Green New Deal.
America, you are being robbed in the dark of night. It’s time to wake up!”
