Former President Trump, a self-described “counter-puncher” that generally employs a take no prisoners approach when dealing with political enemies, recently raised the black flag again, this time to excoriate weak-kneed Mitch McConnell, the Senate Minority leader known for backing down to Democrats and eschewing the MAGA agenda in favor of typical Conservative, Inc. priorities.
Furious over McConnell’s backing down to the leftist agenda, Trump released a statement in which he said:
Mitch McConnell has given away the Unfrastructure Bill and will soon be giving away the Build Back Worse Bill, which will change the very fabric of our society. This was all made possible by the two-month extension he gave the Democrats, the separation of the two Bills, and, most importantly, his lack of courage in playing the Debt Ceiling Card. He has grabbed defeat from the jaws of victory! How this guy can stay as Leader is beyond comprehension—this is coming not only from me, but from virtually everyone in the Republican Party. He is a disaster and should be replaced as “Leader” ASAP!
The statement was likely in response to both McConnell backing down on the debt ceiling and recent reports that Democrats are aiming to pass their voting reform legislation.
