Donald Trump slams GOP over fiscal cliff deal
Main points of the bill include keeping tax increases for middle-class households from taking effect, while letting tax rates rise on households that earn more than $450,000 a year. The bill also extends unemployment for 2 million unemployed Americans and delays spending cuts to the Pentagon and other agencies that would have gone into effect Jan. 2.
Trump tweets of the deal:
- "Obama and the Democrats are laughing at the deal they just made...the Republicans got nothing!"
- "I am a Republican...but the Republicans may be the worst negotiators in history!"
- "This is a terrible deal for the country and an embarrassment for Republicans!"
- "Does any Republican have the ability to negotiate?"
