Trump calls McConnell an 'unsmiling political hack' in lengthy statement

U.S. President Trump departs Washington on travel to Texas at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland

The 600-word statement, coming three days after the Senate acquitted Mr Trump in his second impeachment trial, was trained exclusively on Mr McConnell and sought to paint Mr Trump as the best leader of the Grand Old Party (GOP) going forward.

The GOP leader's associates told the Post that he doesn't plan to speak to Trump ever again after their last conversation on December 14, nor does he have interest in continuing their feud.

Graham said, "what I would say to Sen".

Trump also warned that said he would back Republicans in congressional primaries where "necessary and appropriate", amid reports that McConnell would encourage moderates outside Trump's cuckoo brigade of conspiracy theorists and extremists. "We don't have a snowball's chance in hell of taking back the majority without Donald Trump".

Trump's lashing out follows his impeachment by a bipartisan vote in the House of Representatives last month for his role inciting the January 6 violent riot at the US Capitol, which resulted in the deaths of at least five people, including a Capitol Police officer. "Mitch McConnell at its helm". Trump responded in agreement.

"There's no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day", McConnell said on Saturday, after Trump, the only president to be impeached twice, was acquitted on a 57-43 vote.

Of the leader of the Republicans in the Senate, the statement added: "Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again".

He even noted that though Trump is now out of office, he remains subject to the country's criminal and civil laws.

In his statement on Tuesday night, Mr Trump argued that Mr McConnell bore responsibility for Republicans losing control of the Senate in November because he refused to sanction larger direct payments for Americans in a coronavirus relief package.

Rather, Mr Trump chose to focus on Mr McConnell as he broke an unusually lengthy silence by his standards, after being permanently barred from his former favourite medium - Twitter - last month because of tweets he had posted during the Capitol riot.

He also said McConnell "begged" for his endorsement in the senator's home state of Kentucky while running for re-election previous year - and suggested he would work to defeat McConnell and his Republican allies, saying he planned to "back primary rivals who espouse Making America Great". "We want brilliant, strong, thoughtful, and compassionate leadership".
