Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is a dismal failure as leader of Senate Republicans. He has failed to deliver on several important campaign promises made by Donald Trump and many other Republicans.
Over the past month, he seems to be spending more time and effort working against Trump and the American people than he is working with or for them. McConnell’s failures has led to a rift between him and President Trump, which is the reason Trump made his deal with Democratic leaders Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi to raise the debt ceiling and pass a working budget to keep the government running after the end of the fiscal year – September 30.
However, McConnell is fighting back and trying to convince others that Democrats didn’t get a good deal in working with Trump. At this point, he is desperate to save face and his reputation, which is crumbling at his feet.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Democrats were too hasty in celebrating the shock spending deal they made with President Donald Trump last week, saying it is not as good as they believe.
“The deal is not quite as good as my counterpart thought it was,” the Senator from Kentucky told the New York Times’ ‘The New Washington’ podcast, explaining that the battle for the debt limit increase will be delayed well beyond the initially agreed December deadline.
Last week, Trump overruled Republicans in Congress and struck a deal with senior congressional Democrats to raise the debt ceiling just as long as to ensure the government runs until December…
Eight months ago, it was Democrats who declared they would work against Trump on anything he tried to accomplish. Now it seems Trump’s greatest hurdles and adversaries are not the Democrats, but the leaders of his own party, namely McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. McConnell is running scared but doesn’t want to admit it.
