The Secret Service has confirmed that former President Trump is safe and under protective measures following an at today's rally in Butler, Pennsylvania.

Moments ago, Trump released a statement on his social media platform:

“I want to thank the United States Secret Service and all of for their rapid response to the shooting that took place in Butler, Pennsylvania. Most importantly, I want to extend my condolences to the family of the person who was killed at the rally and to the family of.

The moment the White House accused Sen. (D-W.Va.) of betraying “his commitments to the president” may have been the straw that broke the camel's back.

Manchin has tried to negotiate with his fellow Democrats over the (BBB) bill for months. Manchin's opposition to BBB's most controversial provisions never wavered despite the attacks against him.

In an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” Manchin revealed that he wasn't able to reach an agreement with President Biden, Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Schumer. He also reiterated his concerns about BBB's impact on inflation, the debt, and the ongoing supply chain crisis.

Manchin's statements caught the White House off guard, which responded with a fiery statement:

The weekend bombshell has led to widespread speculation that Manchin will leave the .

Axios reports on his possible next moves:

If Sen. Joe Manchin bolts the Democratic Party, he'd be more likely to switch to independent — and caucus with the Democrats — than become a Republican, people close to him tell Axios.

A defection by Manchin would make even passing a watered-down version of BBB more difficult.

But it would also bring clarity to Biden's political predicament: With 50 votes, his party formally controls the Senate. In reality, any single Democrat can take the party hostage on any given issue.

The big picture: Progressives were worried all year that they would whittle down their spending ambitions to bring Manchin aboard, only to have him pull the rug out once the negotiations got real.

They knew that their only leverage was holding up the $1.2 trillion infrastructure package, and they were right. As soon President Biden signed the infrastructure bill into law, they lost all leverage and Manchin was in the driver's seat — though it's not clear they could have brought Manchin along even if they'd held out longer.

Do you believe that Build Back Better is truly dead? Or will Democrats figure out a way to pass (most of) it in 2022? Tell us in the comments below!

    Manchin represents West Virginia, not individuals, stupid Dems. He’s a Senator, not a representative. The U.S. Senate ensures the U.S. is a Republic, a Union of 50 states.
    What dimwits. The Leftisit don’t even take time to learn about what they criticize.

    Talk about being illiterate, Bett is the poster child for illiteracy and stupidity, and she just loves to show how stupid and illiterate she is, nothing like taking pride in yourself.

    I voted for Donald Trump the last two elections but, were Joe Manchin to run for president he’d have my vote. I hope he doesn’t, his voice of reason, sanity and fiscal responsibility is sorely needed in the Senate. What a courageous man, we owe him a lot. Thank you Senator Manchin!

    Big Ed

    I wish someone could enlighten me-I can’t see how Manchin leaving the Democrat Party, becoming an Independent and caucusing with the Democrats would change a damned thing. In the end, nothing changes over what is currently happening. I just love how the intelligentsia posits reasons for Manchin voting FOR the BBB, so we can get on with a better future-as though everyone is waiting with baited breath to become a Communist hell hole.
