Trump will be furious when he sees why Mitch McConnell waved the white flag of surrender
Donald Trump would like nothing more than to engineer Mitch McConnell’s ouster as the Republican leader in the Senate.
Trump contends McConnell never fights the Democrats hard enough.
And now Donald Trump will be furious when he sees why Mitch McConnell waved the white flag of surrender.
Back in October, Mitch McConnell folded in a showdown over the debt ceiling.
McConnell originally claimed Democrats would need to use the reconciliation process to add trillions of dollars in new debt since Democrats were using the reconciliation process to ram a multi-trillion-dollar socialist spending bill through Congress.
At the last minute, McConnell backed down and provided the Republican votes to raise the debt ceiling through early December.
Now that the deadline is approaching once again, McConnell is in the process of surrendering to Chuck Schumer a second time by promising no government shutdown and that Congress would raise the debt ceiling.
Punchbowl News reports:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said firmly that there won’t be a government shutdown or a debt default, but said little about his talks with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on lifting the borrowing cap.
“Let me assure everyone the government will not default as it never has,” McConnell said. “And second, the majority leader and I have been having discussions about the way forward.” McConnell said he and Schumer were having “useful” discussions.
Trump blasted McConnell in a statement urging Republicans to hold the line on the debt ceiling as a pressure point to defeat the Democrats multi-trillion-dollar socialist spending bill.
But Mitch McConnell looks like he does not have the stomach for this kind of fight and is ready to roll over for Chuck Schumer again.
