Donald Trump’s latest tantrum is targeting none other than Republican Speaker of the House, Dade Phelan.
“Texas Speaker of the House Dade Phelan is another Mitch McConnell. He is not fighting for the people of Texas. Speaker Phelan should immediately move the Forensic Audit bill, SB 47 by Senator Bettencourt that passed out of the State Senate this week, to the floor,” Trump said in a statement shared by his spokesperson Liz Harrington.
Trump even accused Phelan of not “fighting for the people of Texas.”
Phelan’s failure to push through Texas state Senate Bill 47 (SB 47), which would empower party leaders to move forward with county audits, including the 2020 presidential election results, prompted Trump’s comments. The audit bill passed through Texas Senate but is not currently on the state House agenda for the legislative session.
