(JustPatriots.com)- Former President Donald Trump is still the de-facto leader of the Republican Party, and his most recent comments about Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell could spell trouble for the GOP leader.
The former president told The Michael Savage Show that the Gop has some “great Republicans” as well as “some bad ones.” The comments come as the former president works with Republican candidates for the 2022 midterms, announcing his endorsements for various primary candidates looking to replace RINOs and Republicans who voted against his Make America Great Again agenda.
Trump used Senate Minority Leader McConnell as an example of a “bad leader” in the Republican Party, and said that he “always has been.”
“I could have told you that a long time ago,” Trump added.
Well, actually, he did!
The former president explained how McConnell stood in the way of his administration obtaining funding for the border wall, which took years to obtain and only began construction during the second half of his first term as president.
He said that he could have gotten the wall built “a lot sooner” if it wasn’t for McConnell and former House Speaker Paul Ryan. Trump said that both GOP leaders kept insisting that the wall funding could be obtained “next year.”
As if the Democrats would simply change their minds on wall funding a year later…
Trump said that the next year would come along and neither Ryan nor McConnell had obtained the funding, meaning Trump had to go through a number of lawsuits to make it happen.
“It took me two and a half years of winning lawsuits,” he told Savage.
Despite his concerns about the bad leaders in the GOP, Trump reasserted his faith in the party to ultimately do the right thing. He said that if the party has leadership, the party “would be amazing.”
That’s presumably why Trump is now handpicking candidates for the 2022 midterms.
The House and Senate could look very different in a year and a half’s time…
