Former President Donald Trump said he doesn't think Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is doing enough to help his party flip the Senate and blasted him for expressing skepticism about the likelihood of Republicans regaining the majority.
"Why do Republican Senators allow a broken down hack politician, Mitch McConnell, to openly disparage hard working Republican candidates for the United States Senate," Trump asked.
He added: "This is such an affront to honor and to leadership. He should spend more time (and money!) helping them get elected, and less time helping his crazy wife and family get rich on China!"
"Right now, we have a 50-50 Senate and a 50-50 country, but I think when all is said and done this fall, we’re likely to have an extremely close Senate. Either our side up slightly or their side up slightly," he added.
Fox News host Sean Hannity also criticized McConnell for the comments, saying, "How about you get out there, Mitch, and fight for your team? What’s your agenda, Mitch, or would you rather just sit by and watch helplessly as Democrats lie to your face, pass another $500 billion green energy boondoggle?"
