President Joe Biden has finally determined to stop working with Republicans and instead pounce on the party of former President Donald Trump.

In a Politico piece Tuesday, sources explained to the site that there wasn’t a single moment that sparked the change of course, yet months of frustration, including that the GOP wouldn’t work with the White House to fight inflation.

“I never expected the ultra-MAGA Republicans who seem to control the Republican Party now to have been able to control the Republican Party,” Biden announced publicly last week. “I never anticipated that happening.”

Instead, Biden thought there would be an appetite for bipartisanship after four years of Trump.

Even if the American people’s selection of Biden over Trump suggested as much, Republican governors and lawmakers haven’t played many balls.

Biden got Republican backing while passing the bipartisan infrastructure bill, and some GOP senators voted in favor of his Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson. Yet, Politico reported that Biden’s senior adviser Steve Ricchetti - who led the infrastructure talks with GOP lawmakers - cautioned the President that passing that bill probably marked the end of across-the-aisle cooperation.

Until recently, Politico noted, Biden was telling advisers he could still work with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

At an event in Kentucky in April, McConnell said he thought Biden had gone too far to the political Left and expressed disinterest in working with him until that was corrected.

‘Well, our personal relationship is just fine. But we’ve not had a whole lot to talk about because of the path he’s chosen,” McConnell stated, casting Biden as an uber Liberal. “Which leads me to say if I’m in the majority next year, Biden will be a moderate, he won’t have any choice.”

“We can help him keep his original commitment,” the Kentucky Republican continued.

Progressives from Biden’s party would claim that he hasn’t leaned Left enough on issues like student loan reform.

Members of Biden’s communications team, including now-former White House press secretary Jen Psaki, have pressed the President to take a more aggressive stance, Politico stated.

So has the First Lady, Politico announced, with Jill Biden telling confidants she’s pressed her husband to go on the offensive.

As Biden began fundraising in earnest for the midterms in recent weeks, he ramped up his rhetoric against the “ultra-MAGA” Republicans - a term meant to bash them for being too cozy with Trump and his “Make America Great Again” agenda.

Biden has further slapped back when attacked.

Last week, the President was questioned about what he thought about Florida Sen. Rick Scott, who’s leading the National Republican Senatorial Committee this cycle, calling Biden “incoherent” and “incapacitated.”
