FORMER President Donald Trump ripped Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday as an “unsmiling political hack” and called for his firing.
In a statement released via his Save America super political action committee, Trump said McConnell was to blame for the GOP losing Senate seats and the majority in the 2020 elections.
“Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again,” Trump stated.
“He will never do what needs to be done, or what is right for our Country.”
Trump said he would back primary rivals who push his Making America Great Again and America First policies “where necessary and appropriate.”
The former president said Republicans want “brilliant, strong, thoughtful, and compassionate leadership,” and that it is a big moment for the US and “we cannot let it pass using third rate ‘leaders’ to dictate our future.”
