Let. This. Sink. In.

Donald Trump says America will get no infrastructure spending, or any other legislation for that matter, until all investigations into him are ended.

There's a word for this: "extortion."

Reminds me of mob bosses shutting down worksites to get what they want.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
There's a phrase for this, too: "impeach the motherfucker"
 
So the government of the United States will stop doing the work of its people until the president is given carte blanche to pursue unlimited criminality.

This does not sound like American. This does not sound like American democracy.

Tea? Would be a shame if #IDontDoCoverUps were to trend. I am certain Trump would not be happy, as he obviously does not do cover ups. Please please, whatever you do, please do NOT retweet this hashtag #IDontDoCoverUps
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
He told "us" that he was going to start work on infrastructure on his first day in office. Did he... lie...? Surely not, that would be so unlike him. bwahahahahaha!

Total mob move. He鈥檚 *literally* running a protection racket from 1600 Penn.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
-Trump only knows how to function through blackmail and bullying. -McConnell has blocked 100 鈥淒eals鈥 to be voted on in the Senate since the Dem鈥檚 took over Congress including a Bill to protect our Elections, which is odd considering Mueller proved our 2016 Election was attacked.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
So much for 鈥渢he art of the deal.鈥 Trump not looking forward to having to plea bargain.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Another word for it: obstruction.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
He was NEVER going to sign off on anything regarding INFRASTRUCTURE He dangled it so he could use it as leverage with the Dems.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
He is a criminal. His brazen disregard for the rule of law is Unacceptable. #ImpeachTrump

Day 2 of the legislative shutdown.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
I am sure that Republicans would have been totally cool with this if Obama had done it.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
It鈥檚 also called insubordination. He鈥檚 refusing to do his job.
 
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
.....or blackmail! America is being held hostage!
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
A bridge too far. Even his base will see through this
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Doesn鈥檛 matter. The senate is no longer a legislative body thanks to Senator Turtle.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
What would you expect from a mob boss?
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
He鈥檚 starting to sweat. Turn up the pressure!
 
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
There's another word "GUILTY"!
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
He鈥檚 not gonna do infrastructure. If it wasn鈥檛 Russiagate, he鈥檇 think of something else.
 
Also 鈥渙bstruction,鈥 I would think.
 
Some people say Trump is smart. I've been saying for ages that he's really stupid. Pelosi KNEW Trump wouldn't be "presidential" & talk infrastructure, which would've been to HIS advantage. His holdout only makes him look guiltier. And Dems will emphasize he screws over America.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
He's obviously taking a page out of McConnell's playbook right?
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Another couple words for it: Late-stage syphilis.
 
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
I'm starting to think that Trump isn't quite the deal maker he touts himself to be.
 
This is what it looks like when the President of the United States has a full sized toddler temper tantrum @harveyjkaye
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
And... GOP is totally fine with their leader playing a criminal king.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
He truly is a 'mob boss' but, in this case it seems Putin is calling the shots.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
"If I go down, I am taking America with me", is basically what this carnival barker is barking.
 
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
There's a pretty straightforward solution here. Congress can pass a bipartisan infrastructure bill with enough votes to override a veto. There's a word for this too: "governing." But will this happen? Not likely.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
COLLUSION OBSTRUCTION EXTORTION
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Let. This. Sink. In. Known as a sleazy mobster and con man for decades, Trump oozes with allegations of committing extortion via his corrupt Organization, and the NYAG is investigating every entity for massive financial wrongdoing, including embezzlement of charitable donations.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Exactly. When Donald faces a tough negotiating point, he takes hostages. He never learned the basic give-and-take mechanism of bargaining, particularly in a context of repeated negotiations (in business, he just shafts his partners and goes bankrupt, so his deals are one off).
 
Yeah. That's what I've been saying too.

Don't forget...Mitch McConnell threatened to block all bills unless Trump gets re-elected.

That's ALSO extortion.

Last time I looked, #EXTORTION was illegal.

#TrumpCrimeSyndicate
 
I agree with the word "extortion". It's also an obvious attempt to obstruct justice by extorting the entire country. Two impeachable felonies in one sentence.
 
It鈥檚 driving him nuts and he is terrified. Good! Keep the investigations going and start jailing anybody who defies a subpoena.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Trump, McConnell, both have to go. They are both neck deep in TREASON, RUSSIAN RUBLES. They do not love America. They only love what they can steal from our country at our expense, at our lives literally. We need them gone gone IMMEDIATELY.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
There are three words for it: obstruction of justice.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
And Nancy's response is she's going to pray for him ... what a joke, what a letdown, what a lack of leadership.
 
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Or until POUTS is impeached. Whichever comes first.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
When has Trump worked with Democrats? Never

In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Is this like extortion, maybe a little bit. No money for infrastructure unless you something i want? Scarey. What's are country coming to. #ImpeachmentHearingsNow pic.twitter.com/NklVwkmYMF
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
A good leader puts the needs of his people above his own. How dare he use our well being to negotiate. He is no leader.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
We all know that even if the investigations stopped nothing would be done because McConnell would stall it in the senate. I say investigate and impeach. Then go after McConnell. It鈥檚 the only way to undo the legislative log jam.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Ever since Dems took back the House, R's have refused to even discuss any legislation D's advance. So basically, Trump has just thrown himself into the crossfire and taken responsibility for something that was happening anyway. The stupidity of this move is breathtaking. 1/2

His little Rose Garden party backfired (鈥淚 don鈥檛 don鈥檛 do coverups鈥 said Individual #1, unindicted co-conspirator in a Felony to *cover up* hush money payments b4 the election) = lie number 10,643 #IDontDoCoverUps #ImpeachmentHearings

Now running the WH and Oval office as if a crime boss. Doing it all in public now. No more hiding his true feelings toward all US citizens. What other leader of the Free World acts in this way? None. Not one. He needs to have his UK visit cancelled.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Also 鈥榙ereliction of duty鈥...he is bound to participate to govern, no matter what...another impeachable offense.
 
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Instead of holding up business to get what he wants.. tRUmp should do as all spoiled children do when having a tantrum..hold his breath....and hold....and hold..............hold
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Always told that the America doesn't negotiate with terrorists! Now is not the time to start. @realDonaldTrump we WILL NOT STOP until we have the truth of all your actions and crimes. We will NOT negotiate.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
well guess what? You're dead wrong. As we speak predatory Foundations and multinationals are sucking up billions in Trump's Opportunity Zone funding (for Infrastructure) by "mobilizing" "grass roots" in cities across America. technocracy.news/rockefeller-fo鈥
 
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
He's bluffing anyway. Never planned on doing infrastructure unless he could grift off the projects, leaving the public no better off than before. #DonTheCon
 
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
 
We aren't getting any anyway, McConnell has blocked every bill the House has passed, he has brought nothing.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Thats what he considers negotiation, holding a gun to the victims head.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
I call it insubordination. Trump works for us, tho' his ego prevents him from understanding that. His job includes Congressional oversight as a condition of employment He doesn't like it, he can resign and play golf on his own g.d. dime. NYS AG will be calling @RoseBeckley
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
SOOOOOO Interesting. ALL BY HIMSELF. Not a SINGLE GOP Senator, Congressman, member of his Cabinet. @realDonaldTrump is becoming more TOXIC by the day. NO ONE can SAVE You from what you've done Donnie. You're going to end up in PRISON. 鈿栵笍鈿栵笍鈿栵笍

Maybe Congress should start defunding his trips to Mar-A-Lago and anywhere else he needs to go to play. I'd be fine with that.#nomoremoney
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Yep. He is holding our government and our country hostage. There's a word for that: 'treason"
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
He could speed things up by stopping the stonewalling and obstructing said investigations....
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
In other words, 鈥淚 quit. But I鈥檓 still going to live in the free house.鈥
 
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
No. We must get out of this mess , NOW militarizing the police just finish his step to be. a dictator ! I been nagging about this . Pelosi must wake up !
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
He's a terrorist. We don't negotiate with terrorists.
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Because he's "innocent".... 馃檮
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Remind me of where GOP and Trump worked with Dems? Healthcare? Or maybe tax cuts they held with lobbyists in secret rooms excluding all Dems? Or maybe it鈥檚 because MCCONNELL won鈥檛 bring any legislation to the Senate? Never forget! pic.twitter.com/QtUZDAvYtS
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Just more mob behavior. Likely not the last of it...
 
 
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
This is *precisely* the kind of behavior you would expect from a not-guilty party. 馃檮馃憣
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
needs to release a list weekly of bills congress passed, that @senatemajldr won鈥檛 take up, so the public can see who is getting work done! Where is our healthcare fix GOP?????
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
Hold the country hostage. Way to own the libs! What an idiot. People with nothing to hide, hide nothing. He can't be gone fast enough.
 
 
Isn鈥檛 the rationale for not indicting a sitting president based on the idea they would be unable to execute the duties of the office for the American people. Well, he just said he won鈥檛 execute the duties of the president, so...? @DirkSchwenk
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
We don't need infrastructure until he's out of office let's not give him more money to blow he doesn't deserve it do not work with this man just get him out of office this is getting to be too damn embarrassing
 
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
And that is most definitely an impeachable offense. Start #ImpeachmentInquiryNow ~ ! Please, before we go into a major revolution.
 
Nice country you got. Shame if something happened to it.

pls let him be the last of the greedy, unaccountable, unethical and heartless figures in our society, politics, entertainment, corporations and big pharma. time to change our ways, America. #loveistheway 馃挒
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
He's stalling. He knows the sword of Damocles dangles over his head. He desperately wants to control the narrative. The end is nigh for Donny boy. Maybe in time for his June birthday.
 
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
So no legislation until he's impeached ?
 
In reply to @TeaPainUSA
I guess you鈥檙e all ok with this extortionists behavior of your leader? @realDonaldTrump You all are beholding to this man鈥檚 corrupt behavior that detrimental to country? #Complicit
