Trump wants to see McConnell ousted from Senate

Former President Donald Trump suggested that the next step for the Republican party should be to remove Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) from the Senate after failing to keep the party unified and losing two Senate seats in Georgia, he said in an interview with me on the The Sara Carter Show podcast.

He said the best way to get the Republican Party back on track and possibly unified is to remove the old establishment leadership, like McConnell, who Trump said, is responsible for the loss of two Senate seats in Georgia and failing to unify the party.

“You start it off by getting somebody to replace Mitch McConnell in the Senate,” said Trump, referring to how the GOP could reinvigorate the party. “You get somebody with a voice that that is a modern day voice that understands what the party is all about, because Mitch doesn’t know right now.”

Following Jan. 6th, McConnell pinned the Capitol riots on Trump. “The mob was fed lies,” he said on the senate floor days following. “They were provoked by the president and other powerful people.” After McConnell’s floor speech, Trump reportedly called the then majority leader a “dumb son of a b—” and a “stone cold loser.”

President Trump, however, did not call or incite violence.

He said told me that there are “some leadership in the Republican Party that doesn’t do a good job.” He said it’s partially McConnell’s failure.

“McConnell should have never lost those two seats in Georgia,” he said. “He lost them pure and simple. And there’s sort of never allowed that to happen ever. But they were angry from the presidential you know, fairness to the Republican voters.”

He said during the 2020 election the Republican voters in Georgia were angry at Governor Brian Kemp “because he hasn’t done the job…on the election stuff, what he’s done has been so bad, but they’re angry at Georgia, they were so in all fairness.”

“When you when you go and you take a look at what’s happened in many, many states, it could have been stopped so easily,” said Trump. “And the Republicans just need a philosophy” to back MAGA but he said instead, “they get away from America first.”

“They get away from who we really are and who the Republicans want to be,” he said. “They’ve gotten away from it. And you take a look at some of the as an example.”

Trump told me that he will work to back Republican candidates that he believes will put the nation and the American people first. He added that those he has backed have won, 100 percent of the time.

On Wednesday, the Save America PAC announced that Trump will hold a major rally in Wellington, Ohio on Saturday, June 26, 2021 at 7:00PM EDT. This will mark “Trump’s first of many appearances in support of candidates and causes that further the MAGA agenda and accomplishments of President Trump’s administration. The rally is to support Max Miller, who President Trump has endorsed for election in Ohio’s 16th Congressional District.”

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
