Former President Trump seems more worried about getting revenge for what happened in the last Presidential election. I can understand going after the Democrats, but against the very Republicans that can make or break even him.
He has been going after Mitch McConnell for over a year now. We all know McConnell is a very seasoned Republican. He knows how to get things done, and he can pull the Senators together quite quickly. I think Trump is missing the big picture here. This is bigger than him, we need to re-take the House and Senate.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in a new interview appeared unbothered by former President Donald Trump’s attempts to oust him from his GOP leadership position.
The Washington Examiner on Tuesday evening asked McConnell if he was concerned that Trump might try to remove him as the top Republican in the upper chamber or prevent him from becoming the majority leader if the party wins back the Senate in this year’s midterm elections.
“Every reporter in town, including, I’m sure, you, have been probing to find one for months, right?” McConnell said, referring to any senator who sides with Trump and wants to dislodge McConnell as minority leader. “Have you found one?”That’s the answer to your question,” MSN
This isn’t McConnell’s first rodeo. Mitch McConnell, doesn’t seem too worried about the attacks former President Trump has been conducting against him.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is shrugging off Donald Trump’s campaign to oust him as the top Senate Republican, chuckling that he views “Old Crow,” the former president’s derisive nickname for him, as a compliment.
“It’s my favorite bourbon,” McConnell said Tuesday evening in an interview with the Washington Examiner, referring to a Kentucky spirit of the same name distilled by Beam Suntory.
Turning to a member of his staff, the minority leader asked, “Aren’t we using Old Crow as my moniker now? It was Henry Clay’s favorite bourbon.” Clay represented Kentucky in the House and Senate in the early to mid-1800s. Washington Examiner
In order to re-take the House and Senate, Mitch McConnell knows we are going to need unity within the party. I wrote an article, that I think signals the Republican party moving away from Trump.
I don’t see in the near future Trump changing his views on the Republican party. I don’t think he will ever see this being bigger than himself. Should former President Trump move on and just take his loss? In short, yes I believe he should.
It’s no secret that President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell haven’t always seen eye to eye. But the feud between the two powerful Republicans appears to be intensifying, with both sides exchanging sharp words in recent weeks. Some political pundits are speculating that the rift could derail the GOP’s legislative agenda in Congress.
Trump’s egotistical behavior and refusal to admit defeat will only hurt the Republican Party in the long run. He is more concerned with his own image than he is with advancing conservative values or helping the GOP win elections. It may be time for Trump to move on and just take his loss.
Mitch McConnell has a lot of work ahead if he wants to re-brand the Republican party. He needs to find a way for conservatives and liberals to come back together, but that’s easier said than done when you are dealing with the fractured state of politics in this country right now.
The people don’t care about what happened at all during Trump’s campaign against President Joe Biden. And it doesn’t help matters any that there is so much infighting going on between Republicans themselves right now – including feuding with President Donald Trump himself which isn’t one of them according to him.
But despite these challenges, his message should be clear – we need unity not division within our ranks, or else the upcoming mid-term elections, and 2024 Presidential election will be another disaster for us as well.
