Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) repeatedly refused to attack former President Donald Trump during a Fox News interview on Thursday evening, despite being nudged to do so.
“All right, we’re just 12 days, Senator, since your really blistering speech on the Senate floor about former President Trump,” Baier said several minutes into the interview as he then played clips from McConnell’s post-Senate trial speech where he criticized Trump.
When Baier tried to get a response from McConnell on the speech, McConnell said that was in the past, is not “relevant now,” and that the Republican Party is focused on “moving forward.”
“We have got a new administration. It’s a very left-wing administration. We need to make sure the American people understand that this is not what Republicans stand for,” McConnell said. “I want to say this about the president. Having chosen the progressive route, he certainly made it a lot easier for me to unify my members in opposition.”
