On Tuesday, Donald Trump (former president) enraged at Mitch McConnell (Senate Minority leader), calling him a sullen, dour, and unsmiling political hack, just days after Trump was acquitted by the Kentucky Republican’s vote in his second impeachment trial.
After impeaching Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell frayed Trump at the Senate floor while delivering his speech. McConnell and Trump have been closely bonded during Trump’s four years as President of the United States.
In a statement, Donald Trump said that Mitch McConnell is a sullen, dour, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are on the way to stay with him, they won’t win again. He continued that Mitch McConnell will never do what needs to be done or what is good for their country. Moreover, Trump described that he would be back, where necessary and appropriate, primary rivals who espouse ‘Making America Great Again’ and their policy of America first. He said that they want brilliant, thoughtful, strong, and compassionate leadership.
Donald Trump’s consideration for compassionate leadership was nothing but a petty statement contained ad hominem attacks, including a jab at the family of Mitch McConnell. Furthermore, Trump regularly slammed his political rivals and critics, including military members, his own health advisers, and his fellow Republican members, who didn’t find much loyal.
A source familiar with Donald Trump’s thinking said that despite the attack at Mitch McConnell’s family and the slamming characterization of his personality, the former president desired to push personal attack at McConnell.
Trump held McConnell accountable for the party’s defeat
On Tuesday, Donald Trump declared that Mitch McConnell’s faults led to the party’s defeat. Former President Trump explained that this is an important moment for our country, and we can’t let it pass by using third-rate leadership to dictate our future.
Donald Trump’s harsh behavior came after his impeachment in the House the previous month for his violent behavior on 6 January at the United States Capitol event, which turned out in around six deaths, including Capitol police officers.
On Tuesday, a longtime Donald Trump’s loyalist, Sen. Lindsey Graham, described to a media agency, Fox News, that two men did a hell of a job together; they are now at each other’s throat. Lindsey Graham added that he is more worried about 2022 that he has ever been, and he doesn’t want to eat out own.
The South Carolina Republican said that what he would say to Senator McConnell: he knows Donald Trump can be a handful, but he is the most dominant person in the Republican party. He continued that we don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of taking back the majority without Trump. Lindsey concluded his statement by saying that if you do not get that, you are just not looking.
