Former President Donald Trump thinks that Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, made a “big mistake” by making a deal with Democrats to extend the debt ceiling until December.
Trump was appearing on Fox’s “Hannity,” whose host is not a fan of Mitch McConnell at all.
Speaking to Trump, Sean Hannity said “You did urge United States Senators not to do what they promised what they wouldn’t do, but they threw a lifeline to Chuck Schumer. And by the way, Chuck Schumer, Elizabeth Warren, yup, they’re mocking Mitch McConnell and making fun of the Republicans, and they are laughing at them because he threw him a lifeline that they didn’t have to throw.”
Trump responded by saying that “The Republican Senate needs to do leadership. I’ve been saying it for a long time. Mitch isn’t the guy. He is not the right guy. He is not doing the job. He gave them a lifeline. It’s more than a lifeline. He gave them so much time to figure out what to do because they were in a big bind. They wouldn’t be able to do anything. He had the weapon, and he was unable to use it. It’s a shame. It’s a shame.”
