Former President Donald Trump hit TRUTH Social to congratulate newly-elected Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy —but he quickly turned the congratulatory message into a battle cry to oust Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Trump posted the following:
“Great job Kevin! We must now stop Mitch McConnell and his China flagrant boss, Coco Chow. It’s as though he just doesn’t care anymore, he pushes through anything the Democrats want. The $1.7 TRILLION quickly approved Bill of the week before was HORRIBLE. Zero for USA Border Security. If he waited just ten days, the now “United Republican Congress” could have made it MUCH BETTER, or KILLED IT. Something is wrong with McConnell, and those Republican Senators that Vote with him. PRIMARY THEM ALL!!!”
Trump also shared several articles highlighting McCarthy’s “thank you” message to the former President for supporting his bid for Speaker.
“I do want to especially thank President Trump. I don’t think anybody should doubt his influence. He was with me from the beginning … And he was all in. He would call me and he would call others,” McCarthy said on CNN at 2 a.m.
“And he really was — I was just talking to him tonight — helping get those final votes. And what he’s really saying really for the party and the country, that we have to come together. We have to focus on the economy,” he continued. “We’ve got to focus, make our border secure. We’ve got so much work to do, and he was a great influence to make that all happen. So, thank you, President Trump.”
