The ex-president says the Republican Party is doomed if it does not replace the leader in the Senate.
Former US President Donald Trump on Tuesday night longs for the Republican Party and its leadership.
In a statement, Trump said, among other things, that the party will never be respected again as long as people like the Republican minority leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, are at the helm.
– Mitch is a mute, grumpy and unsmiling old livelihood politician. If the Republican senators stick to the support for him, then they will never win again, Trump says.
The statement comes in the wake of a recently concluded state court case. Trump was acquitted in the Senate for inciting the riots at Congress on January 6.
57 members of the Senate voted to plead guilty, while 43 voted against.
Immediately after the ruling, Mitch McConnell said that despite the acquittal, Trump was “practically and morally responsible” for the deadly onslaught against Congress.
“The people who stormed this building were convinced that they were acting on the wishes and instructions of their president,” McConnell said, among other things.
The Republican minority leader even voted to acquit Trump.
Trump also threatened in his statement on Tuesday that in the 2022 primary he will only support Republican candidates if they support Trump’s “Make America Great Again” movement.
