Donald Trump Blames Mitch McConnell for Losing Georgia Senate Seats Over Rejecting $2,000 Stimulus Checks
During a recent appearance on Fox News, former President Donald Trump blamed Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for losing two winnable seats during Georgia U.S. Senate elections in January.
“You look at the two Senate elections, that is such a shame that happened… Those two seats are devastating that we lost, and the Republicans frankly were fighting for $600 vs. $2,000, and that was the only ad that the Democrats took,” Trump said.
“That was a disaster. They should not have been doing that. Mitch McConnell made a tremendous mistake. He lost those two seats,” he added.

Big League Politics has reported on the anger developing between Trump and McConnell in recent months with each GOP leader blaming the other for the party’s failures:
“Outgoing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave one final speech attacking President Donald Trump before the latter leaves office Wednesday. He repeated the false claim that Trump incited protesters to storm the Capitol building and said that Congress will “move forward” to continue addressing the serious challenges facing the United States...
Only a couple hours before the Capitol incident McConnell rejected Trump’s claims of voter fraud and a stolen election and said he would “respect the people’s decision” to elect Joe Biden. Then it was reported the following week that McConnell privately expressed his pleasure at Trump’s second impeachment and praised it as an opportunity to purge him from the GOP.
Because of the 50-50 tie between Democrats and Republicans in the Senate, Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell are said to be working out a power-sharing agreement. Sources familiar with the details say that although Democrats will be in charge of setting the schedule, both parties will equally split the number of seats they hold on various committees.”
Unfortunately for McConnell and the GOP establishment, the rank-and-file Republicans support Trump in overwhelming numbers moving forward. The Republican Party will be a pro-Trump America First party moving forward or it will cease to exist.
