Trump Challenges Mitch McConnell…

It is no secret that Donald Trump and Senate Minority Leader and Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell are not best friends, but if reports are accurate things are about to get even more contentious between them.

The Wall Street Journal has reported that the tensions are so high between the two men that Trump is now actively looking for someone to primary McConnell in the next election.

“Mr. Trump has spoken recently with senators and allies about trying to depose Mr. McConnell and whether any Republicans are interested in mounting a challenge, according to people familiar with the conversations. There is little appetite among Senate Republicans for such a plan, lawmakers and aides said, but the discussions risk driving a wedge deeper between the most influential figure in the Republican Party and its highest-ranking member in elected office,” the report said.

Trump would not say if he was recruiting challengers to go against McConnell in a recent interview, but he did say he should be deposed as Minority Leader.
