Wyoming Republican John Barrasso blasted the Biden administration for its low approval ratings among Americans. The senator asserted that the incompetence of the current White House is uniting citizens around the Republican Party.
During an interview Sunday, Barrasso said inflation is out of control, the U.S. border is being overrun and Afghanistan was taken over by terrorists as a result of Joe Biden’s policies. The senator added, 45th President Donald Trump is the main unifying force in the GOP.
“I think the more that the Democrats and the press becomes obsessed with President Trump, I think the better it is for the Republican Party,” he stated. “President Trump brings lots of energy to the party. He’s an enduring force. The Trump policies of a strong economy and American energy, not begging Vladimir Putin to produce more oil, which is what Joe Biden is doing.”
The senator went on to address Biden’s social spending bill, which will increase taxes on Americans, add to the national debt and impact next year’s inflation.
“The problem is the Democrats are now saying ‘we want to go all in’ with this massive tax and spending bill, which is going to harm America families,” explained the Wyoming lawmaker. “People are going to pay higher prices, there are going to be higher taxes and, of course, we are going to see increase in the debt. Republicans are heading in the right direction; the Democrats are full speed ahead against the ideas of what the American people want.”
Barrasso affirmed Trump created the best economy in his lifetime while Biden is advancing policies that are “irreversibly bad.”
