Senate Minority Leader McConnell told local media in Kentucky he was pleased the two-party infrastructure bill was approved and called it good for America.
McConnell told WHAS whether he would attend the signing ceremony of the Infrastructure Bill:

Mitch McConnell did vote in favor of the two-party infrastructure bill. He had previously said the bill would be a “godsend for Kentucky.” Apparently he thought he should raise his praise another notch, as he said Biden’s success was good for America and that he was glad the bill had passed.
It is no coincidence that the Senate Minority Leader made these remarks after Trump essentially branded the 13 House Republicans who voted for the two-party infrastructure bill traitors.
Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump are two of the most unpleasant people in American politics, non-Ted Cruz division, so this could be a situation where many Americans are rooting for mutually assured destruction.
The timing of McConnell’s remarks was no coincidence. Mitch McConnell is trying to get under Trump’s skin by praising his real friend Joe Biden.
