President Trump slammed Joe Biden’s “reckless spending spree” in a new policy video posted to Truth Social on Friday, offering Americans a common sense approach to cutting unnecessary spending while maintaining Social Security and Medicare benefits for the nation’s seniors.
“Under no circumstances should Republicans vote to cut a single penny from Medicare or Social Security to help pay for Joe Biden’s reckless spending spree – which is more reckless than anybody’s ever done or had in the history of our country,” Trump stated.
He continued, “Biden has blown out the Federal budget, wasted trillions on left wing lunacy – and the ridiculous Green New Deal, which is a tremendous problem and embarrassment to us.”
He noted that while Biden’s “out of control spending” needed to be halted, “the pain should be borne by Washington bureaucrats, not by hardworking American families and American seniors. The seniors are being absolutely destroyed in the last two years.”
Via Trump’s campaign website, his policy approach on the issue of healthcare maintains a commitment to also “stop all COVID mandates and restore medical freedom, end surprise medical billing, increase fairness through price transparency, and further reduce the cost of prescription drugs and health insurance premiums.”
Trump hammered the point home by firing off a list of budget items that could easily be cut before ever considering touching Social Security or Medicare:
- “Cut the hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars going to corrupt foreign countries,
- Cut the mass releases of illegal aliens that are depleting our social safety net and destroying our country,
- Cut the left-wing gender programs from our military,
- Cut the billions being spent on climate extremism,
- Cut waste, fraud and abuse everywhere that we can find it – and there’s plenty of it!”
The president added, “But DO NOT CUT the benefits our seniors worked for and paid for their entire lives. Save social security – don’t destroy it. The Democrats are looking to destroy Social Security. We’re NOT going to let them do it.”
