Trump Spews Words of Wisdom to McConnell One Month before Midterm Elections
President Donald Trump has finally found the words to express his deepest feelings about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and they might not be those that the Kentucky Republican wants to hear. In fact, it appears as though Trump’s open attack on McConnell may have come too late for it to have any effect on the upcoming midterm elections in November – other than hurting the president’s Republican allies in Congress.
The timing of Trump’s outburst against McConnell seems unusual, given that it came on Friday night, hours after the news had spread about a terror attack in NYC that resulted in eight deaths and 12 injuries.
Trump’s tweets about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
Senator Mitch McConnell said I had excessive expectations, and that my ideas were too ambitious. He should be grateful for what we’re doing. We have the best economy in decades, unemployment is at a nearly two-decade low, and our companies are more competitive than ever. We can do so much better than this! Republicans should stop wasting their time on the investigation of a hoax that hasn’t been proven in court. Our tax and economic bills are getting better and better.
We are becoming Stronger, Richer, and Greater every day. When people or countries come in to raid the great wealth of our Nation, I want them to pay for it. Trade must be fair and reciprocal. The massive Tariffs being charged to us by China, and other countries are unfair and yet effective! Either a country that has treated the United States unfairly on Trade negotiates a fair deal, or it gets hit with Tariffs. It’s as simple as that – and everybody’s talking!
Republicans are turning on each other
The Republican Party is imploding. The President is attacking one of the few Republicans in Congress he can’t fire and Mitch McConnell, who has been a loyal supporter for decades, is now being attacked by Trump. It’s clear that this party will do anything to win, even if it means throwing each other under the bus.
Trump and McConnell have worked together for years and it’s clear that Trump values his relationship with him. Even if you don’t agree with McConnell or support his work, it’s not healthy for two men with so much power to publicly humiliate each other in such a way, especially when one is a party leader. We need to take action against these attacks before they reach dangerous levels. If we don’t put an end to them soon, both parties will suffer from internal fighting.

U.S. President Donald Trump calls Mitch McConnell ‘weak’ and ‘ineffective’ over Russia probe
Senator Mitch McConnell said I had ‘excessive expectations,’ but I don’t think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done? tweeted Trump from his golf club in Bedminster, NJ. Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn’t get it done? Must be a Democrat!
Who will jump ship first?
President Trump and Senator Mitch McConnell are both up for re-election next month. And while they were once allied, the two are now at odds. In a video released on Monday morning, President Trump took a direct attack on his own party leader, stating that he was just waiting for Mitch to step down so he can be replaced with someone who is less focused on the donors and more focused on the people. There’s been no response from Senator McConnell yet but it’s only a matter of time before this tiff blows up in their faces – surely someone will jump ship first?
If you speak truth to power, you will pay a price – The New York Times Editorial Board
President Trump is continuing his habit of attacking the Republican leaders in Congress, this time blasting Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for not passing legislation on repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act. If you speak truth to power, you will pay a price. It’s one thing for President Trump to insult members of his own party like Jeff Flake or John McCain, but it’s another thing when he’s trying to undermine one of the few Republicans left who could pass meaningful legislation.
We’ve seen President Trump Attack Senator Bob Corker and now Senator Jeff Flake before they both decided not to run for re-election in 2018 because they have been outspoken against the president. You can’t call yourself a leader if you’re running people out of office instead of encouraging them.
