Mitch McConnell Attacks Trump When Asked by Liberal Reporter About 2024

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell suggested Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential election bid is in trouble following remarks made by the former President calling for the “termination” of rules regarding the previous election.

CNN reporter Manu Raju asked McConnell (R-KY) about the remarks during a briefing at the Capitol Tuesday.

“Can you say categorically that you would not support him if he were the Republican nominee?” Raju questioned.

“What I’m saying is, it would be pretty hard to be sworn into the presidency if you’re not willing to uphold the Constitution,” McConnell replied. “That’s what I said and I just said it again.”

That’s strange… considering the number of Presidents who have upheld the Constitution in the modern era is a handful, at best.

Trump Rails Against Election Results Following ‘Twitter Files’ Controversy

McConnell was commenting on remarks made by the former President after he learned of the ‘Twitter Files’ scandal.

The Twitter files involve a series of releases, one which has already come to pass, which show executives at the Big Tech company deliberately censoring the Hunter Biden laptop story at the direction of the DNC and President Biden’s campaign.

Rather than use that as fuel heading into his next campaign, Trump unwisely suggested unraveling the 2020 contest through the “termination” of rules, “even those found in the Constitution.”

Trump has since insisted that was not what he meant, merely that “steps must be immediately taken to RIGHT THE WRONG.”

McConnell: Trump Won’t Win in 2024

This is the second time in recent weeks that Mitch McConnell has implied Trump would not become President in 2024, or even become the GOP nominee.

Last week, the top Senate Republican criticized the former President’s media-hyped dinner with Kanye West and little-known commentator Nick Fuentes.

“First, let me just say that there is no room in the Republican Party for anti-Semitism or white supremacy,” McConnell told reporters unprompted.

“And anyone meeting with people advocating that point of view, in my judgment, are highly unlikely to ever be elected president of the United States.”

Trump responded to McConnell’s criticism in typical fashion, calling him a “loser.”

“Mitch is a loser for our nation and for the Republican Party who would not have been re-elected in Kentucky without my endorsement, which he begged me for because he was going down,” he said in an interview with Fox News.

At some point, you would think it would dawn on McConnell that the things Trump says, in his bombastic and hyperbolic fashion, are things that the opposition party has actively engaged in.

The Democrat Party has an outright monopoly on anti-Semitism, with the Squad making numerous comments that would make Fuentes proud.

And ‘terminating’ the Constitution? Did Mitch not see what happened in 2020 with early voting, mail-in voting, and a coordinated effort by the Democrat party and the media to sway an election?

No concerns about the integrity of the Constitution there, eh?

Trump has consistently been calling on McConnell to be removed from his leadership role “immediately,” saying he is little more than “a pawn for the Democrats.”

These latest comments seem to have proven him right.

  • MCONNELL IS A DISGRACE AND BETRAYER OF AMERICA. HE THINKS BIDEN IS DOING A GOOD JOB- SOMEONE NEEDS TO ASK HIM WITH WHAT DITCH MITCH OR THE GOP WILL CEASE TO EXSIST. WISH TRUMP WOULD START HIS OWN PATRIOT PARTY, TO MANY RINOS AND TRAITORS IN GOP

  • McConnell just needs to go. His 3rd world leadership is not wanted here. Crooked Crenshaw needs to go with him.

  • McConnell and the other criminals are accusing President Trump of not "upholding the Constitution". What a laugh. McConnell's wife's family own a Chinese shipping company and are very much involved with the CCP. Their allegiance isn't to America, We The People nor the Constitution. He berates and doesn't support members of the GOP- his party. He behaves most like a Democrat, even favoring legislation the Dems want to pass. He and other Uniparty members have never upheld their oath of office and go after their political enemies, even if they are fellow GOP members. McConnell, the other RINOs, and the Dems should all be arrested by the military and sent to tribunals because they committed treason, created a coup and the real insurrection on 11/3/20 with the help of foreign entities.This makes them domestic traitors and enemy combatants, who through the Constitution and the DoD Law of War, can be arrested by the military, sent to tribunals and executed for their criminal acts. This cannot happen fast enough to save our country. It is very obvious now who the real criminals are, and Donald Trump isn't among them.

  • Red Wave killer McConnell started killing any chance of taking the senate. He did not want any honest senators because that would mean he would be gone. He has been working with dems since Trump ran the first time. If they investigate the dems he, and the rinos go too. Neither dem, nor rino want Trump so if you want to fix this mess, Trump is obviously the best choice. If not you get what you've got on steroids.

  • Yeah McConnell and many others such as piglosi "You can take that to the bank" old hag said same thing in 2016, Trump will never be President. Sho enuff, he won it. So a what Democrats or a rhino like turtle mcconell says if by in large irrelevant and a lie.Trump had and still has a large supporting group who will proudly vote for him again. Though the establishment elites like Mcconnell and graham and Romney and the likes will try their best to sabotage their own party to keep Trump out of office.

  • Since President Trump was elected, McConnell and Ryan took every opportunity to undermine him. Now that the president is out of office McConnell's attacks are no longer crafty, subtle, or duplicitous but obvious. If Republicans want to see power in the White House in the 2024 election they cannot pit Trump against Santos and others, the split would provide Democrats a clear path to four more years of their policies – which would certainly not be beneficial to America's interests.
