You knew he wouldn’t be able to resist hitting back:
The Republican Party can never again be respected or strong with political ‘leaders’ like Sen. Mitch McConnell at its helm. McConnell’s dedication to business as usual, status quo policies, together with his lack of political insight, wisdom, skill, and personality, has rapidly driven him from Majority Leader to Minority Leader, and it will only get worse.
The Democrats and Chuck Schumer play McConnell like a fiddle—they’ve never had it so good—and they want to keep it that way! We know our America First agenda is a winner, not McConnell’s Beltway First agenda or Biden’s America Last.
In 2020, I received the most votes of any sitting President in history, almost 75,000,000. Every incumbent House Republican won for the first time in decades, and we flipped 15 seats, almost costing Nancy Pelosi her job.
Republicans won majorities in at least 59 of the 98 partisan legislative chambers, and the Democrats failed to flip a single legislative chamber from red to blue.
And in ‘Mitch’s Senate,’ over the last two election cycles, I single-handedly saved at least 12 Senate seats, more than eight in the 2020 cycle alone—and then came the Georgia disaster, where we should have won both U.S. Senate seats, but McConnell matched the Democrat offer of $2,000 stimulus checks with $600. How does that work?
It became the Democrats’ principal advertisement, and a big winner for them it was. McConnell then put himself, one of the most unpopular politicians in the United States, into the advertisements.
Many Republicans in Georgia voted Democrat, or just didn’t vote, because of their anguish at their inept Governor, Brian Kemp, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, and the Republican Party, for not doing its job on Election Integrity during the 2020 Presidential race.”
It was a complete election disaster in Georgia, and certain other swing states. McConnell did nothing, and will never do what needs to be done in order to secure a fair and just electoral system.
Donald Trump just put out a very long statement through his “Save America PAC” attacking @LeaderMcConnell.

Trump attacks Elaine Chao, who resigned after the Capitol attack, in his McConnell statement: “McConnell has no credibility on China because of his family’s substantial Chinese business holdings.”

As a friend just pointed out, this latest Trump statement on Mitch McConnell is as if he’s saved every tweet in the notes section of his phone and put it all out in a statement. pic.twitter.com/Jw0ObShW6G

McConnell’s blistering criticism of Trump, hinting he could be prosecuted for his actions leading up to Jan. 6, has prompted the lengthiest statement from the former president since he left office. He calls him a “dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack.”
