McConnell: “I Won’t Critique” Trump’s “Performance”

The Hill reports:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Tuesday sidestepped a question about President Trump’s response to protests sparked by the killing of George Floyd, and didn’t directly weigh in on the treatment of protesters outside the White House on Monday night.

“I’m not going to critique other people’s performances. I can speak for myself, and I just have,” McConnell said when asked if Trump was providing the “right kind of leadership” in the wake of Floyd’s death in police custody.

Asked separately if he was “comfortable” with the “scene” outside the White House, McConnell demurred. “I’ve already told you what I think about last night. I’m relieved that apparently there were few to no injuries last night, apparently little or no looting,” McConnell said.
