Trump says GOP needs ‘stronger’ and ‘better’ leadership than McConnell

Appearing on “The Truth with Lisa Boothe” podcast former President Trump said Republicans need “stronger” and “better” leadership than Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“I think we need better leadership than Mitch McConnell and stronger leadership,” Trump said.

“I mean, he can’t rein in his own people,” he continued. “We have the Mitt Romneys of the world and, you know, the Ben Sasses of the world. These are not good for the Republican Party.”

McConnell was vocal in assigning blame to Trump for the January 6th Capitol riot.

He charged that Trump was “practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day.”

Trump warned that McConnell is “hanging by a thread right now with respect to the filibuster” and said “if they get the filibuster, he’s hanging on Joe Manchin, who always goes with the Democrats.”
