Former President Trump has targeted Mitch McConnell this Wednesday in a new comment.
Trump said that McConnell doesn’t represent the GOP and he is at odds with most of Republican voters in a new comment, released from his current Save America PAC. Donald Trump also went for McConnell for not trying to stop the Biden White House, naming topics like the inflation and the border crisis.
“Mitch McConnell doesn’t speak for the GOP, and doesn’t represent the opinions of most of its voters. He didn’t do anything to fight to stop the most fake election in our history. And he allows the invasion of our Southern Border, increasing inflation, unconstitutional vaccine mandates, the suppression of political enemies, the giving away of America’s energy independence, etc., which is all due to the fake election,” Trump said in a comment.
“Instead, he bails out the extreme left and RINOs. If Mitch would have fought, like the Dems would have if they were in the same spot, we would not be talking about any of the above today, and our Nation would be PROUD and STRONG instead of embarrassed and weak,” Trump said.
Trump said that McConnell was a “dumb son of a bitch” during an event at Mar-a-Lago previously in April, as reported by Politico.
In Jan. 2021, McConnell went for Trump and his supporters for spreading fake information about the 2020 election, saying his rhetoric led to the mob that stormed the Capitol on January 6.
Trump gave Senator McConnell the new nickname “Old Crow Mitch McConnell” in Nov. of 2021 for be supportive of the over 1 trillion-dollar spending bill that was enacted in August. He said McConnell was “incapable” of giving an infrastructure plan while he was in the White House.
In reply to Donald Trump’s nickname, McConnell said he was “honored,” and referenced the legendary Kentucky lawmaker and former Sec. of State, Henry Clay.
“Actually, it is quite an honor,” he said to the outlet. “Old Crow was Henry Clay’s favorite bourbon.”
Senator McConnell also hit back at Donald Trump in March of 2021 for accepting credit for his state level re-election, reminding everyone that he was down by 15 points in 2014 when he was able to win without Trump’s help.
