Former President Donald Trump released a statement on Sunday slamming Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) over allegedly commenting that Trump had “finally, totally discredited himself” following the January 6 protests.
The remarks were reported by New York Times reporter Jonathan Martin in his new book, “This Will Not Pass” which was released last week.
“The New York Times said today, in a major article, ‘Segments featuring Fox’s own reporters consistently drew lower ratings, especially if they were covering stories the audience deemed unfavorable to Mr. Trump,’” Trump’s statement began.
“The primary thing they don’t want to talk about is the 2020 Rigged Presidential Election. It’s all about that from the Laptop from Hell, to the ballot harvesting scandal, to the Zuckerberg Facebook Unlocked boxes, to cancellation by Big Tech. It’s all having to do with the Election, the most important thing they have ever done, because that’s the one subject they just don’t want to talk about. It was too corrupt, it’s now been proven, and they just want to skate by—they just want this subject to end,” Trump asserted.
“Mitch McConnell and his RINO friends would rather see a Democrat like Biden be president than a Republican like me. It works better for him and his agenda, but it doesn’t work better for our Country. He should have done something about it, and he still should. When a thief robs a jewelry store and gets caught, they have to give back the jewelry. Think of it: The election was rigged and stolen, we found out how, and Republican leadership doesn’t want to do anything about it. They say, ‘Sir, you’re winning in a landslide, both against Republicans and Democrats. Think to the future, sir. Think to the future.’ To which I say, ‘You can never think to the future until we solve the past, because it will just happen again,’” he continued.

“Everybody go out and study True the Vote and all of the information about illegal ballot harvesting, millions of votes, that’s coming out next week. Also, check out the Dinesh D’Souza documentary, ‘2000 Mules,’ about this scam. You will come away a different person, and say to yourself that our Country’s elections are run worse than those of a third world nation,” the former president proclaimed.
As for Mitch McConnell, he has stayed silent in meetings with Republican colleagues concerning the quote, according to The Hill. He has also stayed silent on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s alleged comments on Trump and Jan. 6.
“McConnell is a lot smarter than McCarthy, so he hasn’t said anything,” one Republican senator anonymously told The Hill. “He’s just gone about his business.”
The lawmaker claimed “there was no talk of McCarthy, there was no talk of Trump” during McConnell’s meetings with Republicans this week. That claim was reportedly backed up by two other Republican senators.
Another anonymous Republican senator said that McConnell’s rift with Trump won’t pose any problem to his reelection as GOP leader after the November elections.
“He doesn’t need to” say anything, the senator asserted, because he believes he doesn’t need Trump’s support to keep his leadership post.
Although the two ostensibly don’t get along, McConnell has said that he will “absolutely” support Trump if he is the party’s nominee in 2024.
