President Donald J. Trump is exposing the longtime Senate Majority Leader of the Republican Party, who has fought tirelessly against the American people and the America First movement from Washington, D.C. Trump’s ire centered on a man renowned for ‘sometimes poking his head out and doing something that looks to be conservative, and then subsequently turning everyone to the left.
“Bottom line … Almost all Mitch McConnell’s primary candidates were crushed by Trump endorsed candidates – so the coward backstabbing baby is trying to throw the Senate midterms,” Popular commentator Catrurd rightly remarked on Twitter.
Bottom line …
Almost all Mitch McConnell's primary candidates were crushed by Trump endorsed candidates – so the coward backstabbing baby is trying to throw the Senate midterms.

Trump attacked Mitch McConnell, labeling him a ‘broken down hack’ and accused him of ‘openly denigrating’ Republican candidates, after McConnell’s remarks regarding the ‘quality’ of Republican candidates for the Senate enraged the president.
Since Trump’s arrival in Washington, D.C., the two men’s relationship has been strained, with most Americans noting that while McConnell helped Trump get some good things done on the US Supreme Court, he was also an obstacle to most of Trump’s agenda, causing roadblocks and directing Senate members like North Carolina’s Thom Tillis to betray Trump’s endorsement of him numerous times.
McConnell undoubtedly wields some influence over how Senate members conduct themselves, and his power in this regard has long been scrutinized by the American people — for just these behaviors.
McConnell is by far the least popular politician in the United States. According to a survey conducted in July 2022:
“In a survey of U.S. adults conducted in May 2022, 38 percent of respondents held a very unfavorable opinion of Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. On the other hand, seven percent of respondents had a very favorable opinion of the Senate Minority Leader.”
McConnell stated on Saturday that he had worries about the party’s chances of winning the midterm elections in November, which are less than 80 days away. According to Trump, McConnell’s signal to the voters that they cannot win is not helpful.
This public dispute occurred at the same time as numerous Republicans voiced anxiety on the impact of Trump’s high-profile support on their races.
The two candidates that attracted the greatest attention from other GOP members were Mehmet Oz and Herschel Walker due of their celebrity status.
