On Thursday, 45th President Donald Trump took out his fury on moderate U.S. Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell during the House January 6th Committee’s continued inquisition into the alleged incursion of the U.S. Capitol. McConnell pinned blame on Trump for the incident.
The Hill reports:
“Is this the same Mitch McConnell who was losing big in Kentucky, and came to the White House to BEG me for an Endorsement and help? Without me he would have lost in a landslide. A disloyal sleaze bag!” Trump posted on Truth Social, his social media platform.
On Tuesday when asked whether he would oppose Trump’s candidacy for president in 2024 if he runs again, McConnell only predicted that the former president would face a lot of competition for the nomination.
“I think we’re going to have a crowded field for president. I assume most of that will unfold later and people will be picking their candidates in a crowded primary field,” he told reporters.
