Trump slams McConnell as 'the most overrated man in politics' ahead of final vote for $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill
  • Trump unloaded on McConnell and the bipartisan infrastructure bill ahead of a Senate vote.
  • The former president called his onetime political ally "the most overrated man in politics."
  • Trump, who has criticized the bipartisan plan for weeks, this weekend called for McConnell to push for a better bill while denigrating the legislation as a "disgrace."

    Shortly before the final Senate vote was set to be held, the former president was unrelenting in his criticism of the bill and McConnell.

    "Nobody will ever understand why Mitch McConnell allowed this non-infrastructure bill to be passed," Trump said in a statement. "He has given up all of his leverage for the big whopper of a bill that will follow. I have quietly said for years that Mitch McConnell is the most overrated man in politics — now I don't have to be quiet anymore."

    He added: "He is working so hard to give Biden a victory, now they'll go for the big one, including the biggest tax increases in the history of our Country."
