Donald Trump stepped up his feud with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell over the weekend after the Kentucky Republican appeared to criticize GOP Senate candidates the former president has backed.
In a Truth Social post, Trump called McConnell a “broken down political hack” while going on to challenge the GOP leader’s loyalty to his own party.
“Why do Republicans Senators allow a broken down hack politician, Mitch McConnell, to openly disparage hard working Republican candidates for the United States Senate,” Trump asked.
“This is such an affront to honor and to leadership. He should spend more time (and money!) helping them get elected, and less time helping his crazy wife and family get rich on China!” he added.
During an event in his home state last week, the Kentucky Republican was asked his thoughts about several Senate candidates backed by the former president and their chances of pulling off victories during the upcoming midterms.
