Last week, Donald Trump responded to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell calling the events of January 6th a “violent insurrection.” Many Republicans have been trying to use revisionist history surrounding the events that day, but McConnell has held firm that January 6, 2021, was a dark day in American history. He said during a recent press conference, “it was a violent insurrection with the purpose of trying to prevent the peaceful transfer of power after a legitimately certified election from one administration to the next.”
Trump released a statement about McConnell’s remarks that read in part, “Mitch McConnell does not speak for the Republican Party and does not represent the views of the vast majority of its voters. He did nothing to fight for his constituents and stop the most fraudulent election in American history.” This difference of messaging highlights the fissure that still very much exists between the establishment and Trumpian wings of the Republican Party. It remains to be seen which side will be in control of the GOP by the time the 2024 presidential election rolls around.
