Trump Can’t Be Happy About What Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell Plans To Do If He Wins
With a very real possibility of Donald Trump gaining the Republican nomination for the election of President of the United States, some folks on the GOP side state that they would drop support of Trump in an effort to save themselves. One of those folks was Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell who said he would drop Trump “like a hot rock.”
While still hopeful that Mr. Rubio might prevail, Mr. McConnell has begun preparing senators for the prospect of a Trump nomination, assuring them that, if it threatened to harm them in the general election, they could run negative ads about Mr. Trump to create space between him and Republican senators seeking re-election. Mr. McConnell has raised the possibility of treating Mr. Trump’s loss as a given and describing a Republican Senate to voters as a necessary check on a President Hillary Clinton, according to senators at the lunches.
Well no one really picks up a hot rock in the first place, do they? This may incite internal feuds within the GOP that may lead to further issues down the road.
