STEPHANOPOULOS: You just heard the new poll numbers. Sixty-four percent of Americans say they don’t think that Donald Trump is qualified to be president.

Do you believe he’s qualified? And how do you convince all the voters who think he isn’t?

SEN. MITCH MCCONNELL (R-KY), MAJORITY LEADER: Well, look, I — I think there’s no question that he’s made a number of mistakes over the last few weeks. I think they’re beginning to right the ship. It’s a long time until November. And the burden, obviously, will be on him to convince people that he can handle this job.

And I think a good step in the right direction was the changes he made in the campaign. He’s beginning to use a prepared script more often, which I think is absolutely appropriate for any candidate, whether you’re a long-time politician like Hillary Clinton or whether you’re new to the game like Donald Trump.

STEPHANOPOULOS: I didn’t hear you say whether you thought he was qualified.

MCCONNELL: Look, I’ll leave that to the American people to decide. You know, he won the Republican nomination fair and square. He got more votes than anybody else against a whole lot of well qualified candidates. And so our primary voters have made their decision as to who they want to be the nominee.

The American people will be able to make that decision in the fall.

The Senate Majority Leader has made it very clear that he doesn’t believe that Donald Trump is qualified to be president. It has gotten so bad that McConnell refuses to answer questions about Trump during his weekly press conference, and is even refusing to say the nominee’s name.

Mitch McConnell wants nothing to do with Donald Trump to such a degree that he is virtually admitting that is his own party;s choice for the White House is not qualified to hold the office.

The lame argument that McConnell offered couldn’t hide the fact that Republicans are running away from Trump as fast as they can. Donald Trump may be the Republican nominee, but he is also a man on an island.

Things have hit a new low when the Republican Senate Majority Leader refuses to call the GOP’s presidential nominee qualified.
