Senate Minority Leader McConnell told local Kentucky media that he was happy the bipartisan infrastructure bill was passed and called it good for America.
McConnell told WHAS he asked if he would attend the signing ceremony for the infrastructure bill:

Mitch McConnell voted for the bipartisan infrastructure bill. He previously said the bill will be a “godsend for Kentucky”. Apparently, he thought he needed to raise his praise to another level, as he said that Biden’s success is good for America and that he is glad the bill was passed.
It is no coincidence that the Senate minority leader made these comments after Trump essentially branded the 13 House Republicans who voted for traitors to the bipartisan infrastructure bill.
Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump are two of the most obnoxious people in American politics, not Ted Cruz’s split, so this could be a situation where many Americans are cheering on mutually assured destruction.
The timing of McConnell’s comments was not accidental. Mitch McConnell is trying to get into Trump’s skin by praising his true friend Joe Biden.
