US President Joe Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ plan for new roads and other infrastructure borrows its title from British PM Boris Johnson’s post-lockdown regeneration slogan. But the multi-trillion plan has already been panned by critics.
Liberal news network CNN has been mocked on social media after describing a new federal spending plan as a “window” into President Joe Biden’s “soul”.
CNN senior reporter Stephen Collinson’s “analysis” piece on Wednesday was headlined “Infrastructure was a Trump punchline but is a window into Biden’s soul.”
“The program is the latest massively ambitious sign that he senses that fate, political circumstance and shifts in public opinion offer him a sudden but fleeting opening to accomplish his long-term political aim of improving the lives of American workers,” Collinson gushed.
Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar ‘Build Back Better’ infrastructure plan — the title of which is stolen from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s post-COVID-19 plan — has already been torn into by Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell and former president Donald Trump.
Conservative news site the Daily Caller editor-in-chief Geoffrey Ingersoll was one of the first into the Twitter pile-on.
