According to a report by Raw Story on Saturday, December 30, 2023, in the early hours, Donald Trump used his Truth Social platform to deliver a message to his own party and criticize Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
This action has sparked controversy and drawn criticism from various individuals, including a former Trump White House communications director and a prominent Republican lawyer.
Trump’s post on Truth Social included derogatory remarks about McConnell and his wife, Elaine Chao, a former member of his cabinet.
The incident is the latest in a series of confrontations between Trump and McConnell, reflecting the ongoing strain in their relationship.
The former president criticized his own party and expressed concern about the impact of immigration on the Republican Party’s prospects.
He blamed the “Crazed Democrats” for allowing millions of immigrants to enter the country and accused Republican McConnell of being responsible for the border crisis.
In the early hours of the morning, he expressed his belief that the Democrats are permitting unvetted migrants to enter the country so that they can vote for them.
Trump’s message focused on the influx of immigrants, which he believes will hurt the Republican Party’s prospects.
He claimed that “Crazed Democrats” are allowing “millions and millions” of immigrants to flood the country, and then placed the blame on McConnell.
Trump’s rant continued, stating, “It’s becoming more and more obvious to me why the ‘Crazed’ Democrats are allowing millions and millions of totally unvetted migrants into our once great Country.”
“It’s so they can vote, vote, vote. They are signing them up at a rapid pace, without even knowing who the hell they are. It all makes sense now”
He claimed that they are being registered without proper identification and at a fast rate. He urged the Republicans, specifically Mitch McConnell, to take action before it is too late.
The former president then issued a call to action, urging Republicans to “wake up and do something” before it’s too late.
He specifically mentioned McConnell, asking, “Are you listening to Mitch McConnell?”.
This outburst marks another instance of Trump’s ongoing feud with McConnell, who has been a prominent figure in the Republican Party’s leadership.
