Trump Blasts ‘Foolish, Horrendous, Stupid’ Border Deal.

Former President Donald Trump has come out against the Senate Ukraine/Border supplemental funding bill, slamming the deal as “a Death Wish for The Republican Party.” In a post on Truth Social on Monday morning, the former Republican President said, “Only a fool, or a Radical Left Democrat, would vote for this horrendous Border Bill.”

“It takes the HORRIBLE JOB the Democrats have done on Immigration and the Border, absolves them, and puts it all squarely on the shoulders of Republicans,” Trump posted, adding: “Don’t be STUPID!!! We need a separate Border and Immigration Bill. It should not be tied to foreign aid in any way, shape, or form! The Democrats broke Immigration and the Border. They should fix it.”

Late Sunday night, Senate leaders unveiled their Ukraine aid and U.S. border security supplemental funding bill negotiated by Sens. Sinema (I-AZ), Murray (D-WA), Lankford (R-OK), and Tillis (R-NC). Over the past several weeks, the Republican negotiators — Lankford and Tillis — have come under increasing criticism from their Republican Senate colleagues over provisions in the legislation that would limit the President’s power to shut down the border by proclamation. Opponents also point to the expansion of work visas and other programs in the legislation as indicative of it being an immigrant labor bill and not border security legislation.

The leadership-backed legislation must gain 60 votes in the Senate to overcome a filibuster. With former President Trump joining the opposition to the Senate deal, Sens. Schumer (D-NY) and McConnell (R-KY) may find it increasingly difficult to whip those 60 votes.

Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT), who heads up the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), has already come out against the funding supplemental. Daines, widely viewed as a moderate on immigration, has supported the expansion of visa and guest worker programs in the past.
