Responding to Senator Mitch McConnell’s op-ed published in the Wall Street Journal Monday, former President Donald Trump rips McConnell in his most direct attack yet. He called the Senate minority leader a “dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack,” and said that the GOP would “never again be respected or strong” as long as McConnell is leading.

Trump Rips McConnell

Trump released a statement Tuesday in what analysts perceived as a response to McConnell’s op-ed piece in The Wall Street Journal last Monday. McConnell wrote his justification of his “Not Guilty” vote during the impeachment trial. He defended it as a vindication of the constitution and not an endorsement of Trump’s innocence. He continued to insist that the impeachment is unconstitutional and that’s the only reason he didn’t vote to convict the former president. 

In addition, Trump also repeated the claims that McConnell is soft on China. He claims that the minority leader won’t engage China as he is married to Ellen Chao, who has Taiwanese roots. Chao is also Trump’s former Transportation Secretary. “McConnell has no credibility on China because of his family’s substantial Chinese business holdings. He does nothing on this tremendous economic and military threat,” he wrote. 

Single-Handedly Saved the Senate 

Trump also said that he helped save the GOP’s senate numbers. “In ‘Mitch’s Senate,’ over the last two election cycles, I single-handedly saved at least 12 Senate seats, more than eight in the 2020 cycle alone,” he said. However, the Georgia loss wiped their lead, so now they had to contend with a Democrat majority. 

The former president pointed to McConnell as the main culprit why the GOP lost both Senate seats in the Georgia runoff elections last January. He added that Democrats, especially Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (NY) played McConnell like a fiddle. Also, he said he wanted a stimulus check of at least $2,000 per person, which is the same as what the Democrats wanted. However, McConnell only wanted $600. Also, he maintained that the Republicans lost Georgia because they failed to uphold election integrity in the state. “Many Republicans in Georgia voted Democrat, or just didn’t vote, because of their anguish at their inept Governor, Brian Kemp, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, and the Republican Party, for not doing its job on Election Integrity during the 2020 Presidential race,” he said. 

Animosity Between the Two 

After the 2020 elections, the two GOP leaders’ paths separated when McConnell asked party members to recognize the victory of Trump’s rival, Joe Biden. During the time, Trump insisted that Democrats rigged the elections and stole the votes. As a result, Trump rips McConnell and his decision, swearing to support the latter’s primary rivals in the next election. 

Meanwhile, McConnell took to the Senate floor last Saturday after Trump’s acquittal. He argued that despite his vote to acquit, it was only because of the trial’s unconstitutionality. He still finds Trump guilty for the events that led to the January 6 Capitol riots. A “growing crescendo of false statements, conspiracy theories and reckless hyperbole which the defeated president kept shouting into the largest megaphone on planet Earth” gave the mob justification to storm Congress. McConnell also left the doors open for a criminal suit against his party mate. “President Trump is still liable for everything he did while in office. He didn’t get away with anything yet. We have a criminal justice system in this country. We have civil litigation,” McConnell suggested.

‘Moral Responsibility’

The Wall Street Op-ed further pushed McConnell’s justification of his hand washing from the impeachment. “There is no question former President Trump bears moral responsibility. His supporters stormed the Capitol because of the unhinged falsehoods he shouted into the world’s largest megaphone. His behavior during and after the chaos was also unconscionable, from attacking Vice President Mike Pence during the riot to praising the criminals after it ended,” he said. 

For that, Trump vows to support stronger and more credible leadership that McConnell doesn’t seem to have. He will back candidates “who espouse Making America Great Again and our policy of America First,” such as those who offer strong and compassionate leadership. This way, the gains he made for the US can return. “Illegals are pouring in, pipelines are being stopped, taxes will be going up, and we will no longer be energy independent,” Trump noted.

    McConnell is a JackAss. Only reason he got re-elected is because of President Trump campaigning for him. Also they should check his wife’s bank acct. an his for Chinese Money.

  • Diane says:

    I totally agree. He jumped in bed with Schumer and Pelosi immediately. Communist traitor.

  • Kelly king says:

  • Dick palmer says:

  • BINH THAI says:

    HE IS A TRAITOR. SO SICK TO SEE HIS FACE!

  • Anonymous says:

    McConnell has always been a Walter Middy type, a spineless wonder who would rather compromise and surrender rather than fight for republican principals and conservative ideas. His lack of support of Trump in the face of obvious voter fraud was instrumental in allowing the Democrats and their left wing mouthpieces,the major television news propaganda outlets, to sweep it all under the carpet in spite of sworn testimony and video tapes of the crimes actually being committed. We don’t need any spineless wonders or weak willies in the Senate, we need strong motivated leadership if we are ever to regain control of this country, assuming that Biden the left wing puppet, hasn’t destroyed everything that President Trump and the republican controlled Senate had accomplished. McConnell should have at least supported Trumps calls for a formal investigation before accepting the fraudulent vote count and certification by the electoral college.

  • Max says:

    He’s a poster boy for term limits – amazing the folks at home haven’t put him out to pasture before now. He’s been a “wuss” for a long time, not a good representative of a strong conservative party. Trump is a brash, forward, businessman – not a lawyer politician, just the person we need leading the country – it’s the biggest business in the world, but he’s got to literally drain the swamp – all the moles that Obama & Co have squirreled away among the agencies. God Help Us if Sleepy Joe & Co. aren’t reined in!!!

  • ROBERT A. ABADIE says:

    LIKE BIDEN HE IS AN ASS HOLE!! HE RUINED THE GOP IN GA, AND LET DOWN AMERICAN PEOPLE IN HEI DECISION”IDON’T THINK IT ID NEEDED” IN $2000 STINULAS. HE NEEDS A FOOT UP HIS ASS AS HE GOES OUT THE DOOR. AND WHILE I AM AT IT THAT OTHER CROOK ASS HOLE BIDEN!!! DO NOT LOOK FOR SCHOOLS TO TO OPEN ANY TIME SOON, AS BIDEN IS OWNED BY THE DAMNED TEACHERS UNION WHO
    GAVE HI OVER $2 MIL FOR HIS CAMPAIGN. IT IT REALLY SAD WHEN THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES SHOULD BE IN JAIL RATHER THAN PRESIDENT. WHEN THE HELL IS THIS COUNTRY GOING TO SAY ENOUGH OF THIS BS AND START PLAYING HARD BALL GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!

  • Tommy says:

    McConnell says he has a Justice System in the government to charge Trump criminally. Where was this so called justice system during Clinton presidency, the Obuma presidency, the Hillary scams, the Pelosi trash and of course the election meddling. McConnell has done nothing but betray Kentucky, America and the Republican Party. He has nothing but his RINO fakes like Romney and the rest of his kind. Bye-bye Mitch.

  • ROBERT A. ABADIE says:

    iIAMN WAS READING THE COMMENTS AND INWAS WONDERING DID ASS HOLE HAVE A BROTHER NAMED BRANDEN??? ALL YOU RED NECKS KEEP WARM .

  • Hatman1793 says:

    I suggested that The Turtle, aka MM must censure & punish the disloyal Republican Senators who voted with the democrats for impeachment.
    As the Senate Minority Leader that’s his job.
    Instead, MM did nothing, allowed the rogues to vote what they wanted, embarrassing both MM & the rest of the Republican Senators.
    He voted the right way in the Democrats sham show trial but that’s not enough. A motion of Non-Confidence in the Republican caucus should be brought forward immediately. MM should be stripped of his title & replaced with Senator Ted Cruz.

  • Ringo says:

    Why is it never mentioned of all the voter fraud during the election of Obama that was going on through the group Acorn ?,there is and always will be some form of fraud in all elections national or local.
    Pelosi and the democrats are like Tom Brady when he was with the patriots, when they feel that that they were going to lose they cheat at any cost to win.
    There should be a limit on how many terms a senator can serve or an age limit like the American people that are always facing mandatory retirement at age 65.

  • Robert says:

    I would happily, leave the GOP in favor of a Party aligned under President Trump. If he forms the Patriot Party or any other I will leave the GOP. Good riddance to the spineless RINOs and backstabbers! Unfortunately, with the exception of a few I do not believe the GOP is worth saving.

  • CT says:

    Years ago there was a person called Manson. Somehow he controlled people to do his bidding. This country could not believe a person had that much influence over another. Now it happened again. Trump. How is it possible that a person can destroy this country with people accepting what he did. It is totaling unbelievable. He is destroying our society and our kids. I teach my kids lying is one of the great sins. How do I tell be that lying is wrong when Trump continues to lie when he opens his mouth. Of course his follows call it fake news, when the media records what he says.

    Now should he be punished? His follows are saying he is the best President ever sent by God. UNBELIEVABLE. It appears Republican senators agree. They forget they took an oath to protect our country and the oath to protect the constitution. All senators should stand up and forget being a Republican or a Democrat. What would they be doing today if some had been killed by the mob lead by Trump?

    McDonnell has yes Trump many times. Supporting his BS and it seems he had enough as other senators. Trump is bad for this country and the simple matter would have accepted the peoples vote and been a supporter for the Republicans party. Bush Clinton and Obama did what a person was suppose to do for the country. They play golf together which Trump will never be invited to be able to associate with real Presidents.

  • John Jacabo says:

    Mitch needs to go away! He is a total demo hack disguised as a republican! So useless, this country is in big trouble!

  • Bob Roberts says:

    The people of Kentucky should immediately recall him and vote in an AMERICAN to represent them. As should all states with these spineless communists, republicans and democrats. We the people need to take back our power and our country.

  • Chas says:

    @CT…Sir, you are a complete JACK ASS….!!!!!

  • Chas says:

    Mcconnell net worth is $33 million dollars. He got rich off the back of the American Tax Payer. He has cushion job and does not want to give it up at any cost! Why do you think most of these swamp creatures never retire. Most of these creatures run around spending are money with impeachment and investigations rather than doing there damn jobs. Mcconnell has a email box, light it up. Just put his name in a search engine. Term limits for them all..!!!!

  • Jameson Smith says:

    McConnell is a abject failure and embarrassment for the American people. He needs to be recalled by the people of Kentucky and placed back in the swamp he crawled out of. It won’t be much of a change for him.

  • Ruth murrsy says:

    Right is right and wrong is wrong! Everyone whether political or private has a choice of which to follow. It’s quite clear to so many, that those in Washington except or a few, follow the way of power and greed. Mitch is one of the majority that follow wrong not right. Where is the conscience of the Democrats and those who agree with their abdominal policies for our beloved country? They seem to have none! Mitch, I feel sorry for him and those like him, who sell out to others while being knowledgeable enough to know better. May God have mercy on their souls. God is not mocked, and they, whether they believe it or not, will someday stand before him.

  • David says:

    Hey Branden, get a clue. Stop listening to CNN and you won’t sound so f’ing stupid. More people are leaving thhe lunatic left than the Republicans and after millions more wasted in a fraudulent impeachment trial is weakening the left even more. People with critical thinking skills get it. That leaves you out.

  • Gene says:

    i agree with Chas & David

  • CWII-BRINGIT says:

    CT: How can YOU lie and say you are teaching your kids NOT to lie? You are a HYPOCRIT. President Trump produced the best economy the US has seen, with the Lowes unemployment rate for Blacks, Hispanics and women in the HISTORY of the United States! You are an excellent example of what NOT to be as a person and the lies you tell show your abject ignorance!

  • Rockyjones says:

    CT — what are you going to tell your children when 50% of hard earned cash goes to pay for Biden’s policies being instituted now. The lies the Dems tell are so flagrant that a pre schooler would understand without your help. It amazes me that an Administration can fence itself in and pass executive orders to dismantle the country and people like you think it’s the right thing to do. You believe it’s smart to cancel Keystone and tell the unemployed to go find a green job that doesn’t exist. How about locking down an entire country because of COVID 19, then opening the souther boarder with no Covid 19 monitoring. What will you tell your kids when you have to live with them because you were a stupid parent that knows nothing but CNN trash. If you want the truth listen congressional debates and research the issues.

  • JR says:

    Sure Branden, Bush, according to Obama, was literally treasonous for adding 4 to 5 trillion to the debt. The democrat Obama was a hero for adding about 10 trillion. Trump was a dictator for signing executive orders when he became President, but Biden is nothing but a follower of democracy when he pushes thru 5 to 7 times that amount in the same time. Anything dems do is a good thing, but when republicans do the same thing it is criminal. As for you CT, sounds like your are talking about Obama. The man who received a Nobel Peace Prize for simply becoming President, and had achieved nothing else. A community organizer. You guys are completely void of any rational, common sense thought.

  • Don says:

    Why not give our president a chance to get thangs done he’s our president not trump everyone is blowing off about something if you don’t like the president now vote hem out in four years we all need to come together now and quit fighting each other

  • Robert D Jones says:

    I agree with former President Trump’s remarks against Senator Mitch McConnell. McConnell is too impressed with his own ability to do one thing and say another and cannot stand anyone who is unabashedly honest with the American people.
