Many people, including Donald Trump and his supporters, think Mitch McConnell is a RINO. They think he isn’t a real conservative and just likes his cushy job. McConnell, however, isn’t worried about losing it.
Wednesday, during an appearance on FNC’s “Special Report,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) predicted with confidence he would be reelected as Republican leader of the U.S. Senate, regardless if his party wins the majority or remains in the minority after the November midterm elections.
McConnell told “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier that challengers could “have at it.”
BAIER: You have Trump-loyal Republicans like Eric Schmitt, who just won in Missouri, Blake Masters in Arizona. And some of those candidates have refused to say on the trail that they would back you as leader. Is that the new face of a Trumpified Republican Party? And are you the guy to lead that in the Senate?
There are plenty of Republicans that do not like Mitch McConnell, but he still has confidence that he will keep his job into the future. Donald Trump thinks he’s a “disaster.” Do you agree? Will he be able to keep his job?
