Donald Trump is doing his best to remove Mitch McConnell from his position as the leader of the Republicans in the Senate. According to reporting from the Wall Street Journal, Trump has spoken with Republican Senators and other GOP politicians about removing McConnell from leadership, presumably in order to get back at the Kentucky Republican for not backing his bogus claims of voter fraud and certifying the 2020 election in Joe Biden’s favor. There appears to be little appetite for GOP senators to oust McConnell, so what happens next could be a strong indicator for the future of Trumpism within the Republican Party. Trump has been criticizing McConnell a lot lately, recently calling him out for supporting the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package that President Biden wants to champion. Trump said, “if Mitch McConnell was smart, which we've seen no evidence of, he would use the debt ceiling card to negotiate a good infrastructure package.” McConnell is unlikely to go anywhere as leader of the Senate Republicans but that doesn’t mean Trump will stop complaining and trying to get him out.
