Former President Donald Trump just confirmed the rumors. The time is now — America cannot wait any longer. There is only one solution at this point.
“We need leadership in the Senate, which frankly we don’t have,” said Trump on Fox News. “We need better leadership in the Senate. We have a good chance to take back the Senate. Frankly, we will make our decision after that.”
While Trump didn’t mention Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), it can be easily assumed that is who he was referring to in his statement. Right after Trump left office, McConnell stabbed him in the back.
What he is saying, then, is clear: He is convinced that McConnell has to go and he expects that to happen after Republicans take back the Senate in 2022. But it is a long road until we get there — practically a political lifetime.
Furthermore, many Senate Republicans are loyal to McConnell. They might not always agree with him, but the Senate’s longtime Republican leader helped push a sizable amount of Trump’s agenda over a four-year period.
Even so, the relationship between Trump and McConnell has turned completely sour for obvious reasons. It is a forgone conclusion that Trump will likely win in the end and replace McConnell with someone to his liking.
