Biden’s tweet was one of several sent from his account and from the White House’s account lauding a bipartisan deal on an infrastructure plan. But the phrasing of his tweet referred to a running joke in Washington from the former guy’s era.
Trump held an “infrastructure week” in 2017 and spent much of the time attacking the mayor of London and James Comey, the former FBI director he fired who was testifying before Congress at around the same time. The week ended with no legislation and other Trump attempts at “infrastructure week” similarly went nowhere.
Politico reported that Trump was so angry this week over Biden’s infrastructure success that he was working behind the scenes to sabotage the deal.
Twitter users couldn’t help but enjoy the presidential trolling:

Come on, Joe, make a tweet that just says "The art of the deal" when you sign this. Do it. https://t.co/lnrMT8xGTA

Desire to tweet this may have outweighed that of sealing the deal itself https://t.co/zyVzpqipUa

because the one and only thing Trump knows about this deal is that Biden achieving what he couldn't makes him look bad https://t.co/FN8immAdCj

I can’t believe we have an infrastructure week that’s actually about infrastructure where legislation may actually get passed https://t.co/JhZc1RouJH
