Donald Trump, the Forty-Fifth President of the United States has come out swinging against the Senate GOP. Under the leadership of Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), they have once again failed to stop the runaway spending of the Biden-Harris regime and surrendered their best leverage. During his presidency, Trump signed three temporary debt ceiling expansion packages that ‘kicked the can’ down the road, and subsequently rued the decision promising to never do it again.
This seems to be a sentiment the McConnell is echoing now in tough talk to rebuild his badly wounded credibility. In a letter to Joe Biden, McConnell has threatened that he will not bail out the Democrats again by turning on his own voters.
“Last night, Republicans filled the leadership vacuum that has troubled the Senate since January. I write to inform you that I will not provide such assistance again = if your all-Democrat government drifts into another avoidable crisis.”
McConnell torched Majority Leader Schumer for the “bizarre spectacle” in the form of a “rant that was so partisan, angry, and corrosive that even Democratic Senators were visibly embarrassed by him and for him.” But all the tough talk amounts to only that… TALK. When McConnell should have smiled and let Schumer (figuratively) choke the debt ceiling.
Trump Hands Down Condemnation of McConnell And Senate GOP
Fox’s Sean Hannity asked President Donald J. Trump for his take on the Senate Republicans’ last-minute reprieve for Maj. Leader Chuck Schumer, given in spite of his urgings against it, and indeed against the will of Republican voters across the country.
Hannity asked,” Mr. President, you did urge the United States senators today not to do what they promised for two months they wouldn’t do, but yet they threw a lifeline to Chuck Schumer. And by the way, Chuck Schumer, Elizabeth Warren, yup, they’re mocking Mitch McConnell. They’re making fun of the Republicans. And they’re laughing at them because he just threw him a lifeline that they didn’t have to throw them.”
President Trump wasted absolutely no time placing the blame squarely on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell whom he has clashed with frequently, typically regarding his weakness in situations that call for steel nerves.
“The Republican Senate needs to do leadership and I’ve been saying it for a long time. Mitch is not the guy. He’s not the right guy. He’s not doing the job. He gave them a lifeline. It’s more than a lifeline. He gave them so much time now to figure out what to do because they were in a real big bind. They wouldn’t have been able to do anything.
He had the weapon and he was unable to use it. And it’s a shame. It’s a shame.
These 11 people — I know them, some of them are wonderful and some I don’t agree with too often. You know, I’m not surprised to see some of the names. But I will tell you this — that was not a good thing that happened today. He made a big mistake.”
In 2021, the Republican party and the United States of America can no longer afford for our Senators to lose their nerve when confronted. The Senate GOP needs new leadership, it’s time for Mitch McConnell to step aside, perhaps another Senator from Kentucky can fill the void or even one from Texas? What are your thoughts?
