McConnell on Whether He’ll Welcome Trump’s Involvement in Midterm Elections: “Well, He Has His Own Agenda”

Published by

Speaking to Fox News, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) evaded the question of whether he would “welcome” former President Donald Trump’s involvement come midterm elections in 2022.

“Well, he has his own agenda,” McConnell said of Trump, before proceeding to criticize the Biden administration.

“And my view is we’re going to focus on this administration and the future, what they’re trying to do to the country, and make it a referendum in the fall of ’22 on how people feel about this new government they narrowly elected while they continue a 50-50 Senate and a close score over in the House,” he said.

Trump has been vocal about his distaste for McConnell as he makes public appearances to support Republicans in the midterms and drum up support for a potential presidential run in 2024.

“Had Mike Pence had the courage to send the Electoral College vote back to states for recertification, and had Mitch McConnell fought for us instead of being the weak and pathetic leader he is, we would right now have a Republican President who would be VETOING the horrific Socialistic Bills that are rapidly going through Congress,” he claimed in a statement
