After McConnell suggested the GOP might have trouble taking back the Senate, President Trump lashed out at him.
A “broken down hack politician,” in Trump’s words, McConnell should back Republican candidates for the Senate.
McConnell was advised by the former president to stop “helping his crazy wife and family get rich on China.”
In a public spat over the Republican Senate midterm campaign, former President Donald Trump has lashed out viciously at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Trump suggested that the senior senator from Kentucky “spend more time helping his crazy wife and family get rich on China” and “less time helping Republican Senate candidates get elected.”
Trump questioned on Truth Social why Republican senators let “broken down hack politician” Mitch McConnell publicly insult hardworking Republican candidates for the United States Senate.
Trump has taken issue with McConnell’s comments that it will be difficult for Republicans to flip the Senate majority due to the “candidate quality” of the parties’ respective candidates.
Polls taken in the most competitive states in the country show that the Republican nominees are falling behind.
Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania, JD Vance in Ohio, and Herschel Walker in Georgia are all examples of Trump-backed candidates.
Trump and McConnell were once close allies, but ever since Trump lost the 2020 election, they have been publicly at odds with one another.
It was McConnell’s apparent acceptance of Joe Biden’s victory and subsequent condemnation of the former president as “practically and morally responsible” for the January 6 Capitol insurrection that angered Trump.
Trump called McConnell’s attacks on Republican Senate candidates “an affront to honor and to leadership” in a post on Truth Social.
Elaine Chao, wife of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, was Trump’s Transportation Secretary and one of the first Cabinet members to resign in the wake of the riot in the Capitol. Earlier this month, she reportedly testified before a committee of the House of Representatives.
Trump has previously highlighted Chao’s China business connections.
McConnell has stated that he would vote for Trump as the party’s 2024 nominee despite their tense relationship.
