In a statement released late Friday evening, former President Donald Trump called out “RINO Republicans” for “negotiating the infrastructure deal” with “Radical Left Democrats.”
Trump told the “RINO Republicans” — a reference to the acronym Republican In Name Only — that they are “being played” by the left at the negotiating table.
“…RINO Republicans should stop negotiating the infrastructure deal — you are just being played by the Radical Left Democrats — they will give you nothing!” Trump said, concluding the statement.
The statement was sent out in a tweet by Trump spokeswoman Liz Harrington:

Here’s the full statement, in case you hate Twitter so much that you don’t even want to click on the tweet:
Very important that Senate Republicans not allow our hard-earned tax reductions to be terminated or amended in an upward trajectory in any way, shape, or form. They should not be making deals on increasing taxes for the fake infrastructure proposals being put forward by Democrats, almost all of which goes to the ridiculous Green New Deal Marxist agenda. Keep the Trump Administrations tax cuts just where they are. Do not allow tax increases. Thinking about it, I have seen anything so easy to win politically. Also, RINO Republicans should stop negotiating the infrastructure deal — you are just being played by the Radical Left Democrats — they will give you nothing!
