Trump Responds After McConnell Suggests He’s ‘Unlikely’ to Be Republican Nominee in 2024

Former President Donald Trump took a swipe at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) after the senator suggested Trump would be “unlikely” to secure the Republican nomination in 2024 because he met with controversial commentator Nick Fuentes, sparking a torrent of negative media coverage.

“Mitch is a loser for our nation and for the Republican Party who would not have been reelected in Kentucky without my endorsement, which he begged me for because he was going down,” Trump told Fox News in a Nov. 29 interview, after being asked to comment on McConnell’s remarks.

A spokesperson for McConnell did not immediately return a request for comment from The Epoch Times.

While McConnell didn’t name Trump in comments during Tuesday’s press conference on Capitol Hill, he opened his presser with a reference to the media fallout from the former president’s recent meeting with Fuentes and others.
