In a series of interviews with The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway, Former President Donald Trump slammed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, for going against the 45th president on multiple occasions.
The interviews, which took place earlier this year, are for Hemingway’s latest book: “Rigged: How The Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections.”
Hemingway detailed a situation where Trump spoke very candidly about McConnell:
For our first meeting, we sat in the 60-foot long Mar-a-Lago central room. Built by Post cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post, and meticulously restored and renovated by Donald Trump, the gold-leafed ceiling towers above ornate furnishings and tapestries. A massive window overlooks the expansive lawn in front of the ocean. On the other side, the open doors lead out to the large patio where members of the private club there have dinner each night.
At a later meeting I was told that President Trump preferred a seat with its back to the ocean side, but this day he was in the seat facing the ocean. Behind him, an open door showed a room with video equipment and a large TV, playing Fox News.
Baier was interviewing Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. I would later learn it was the interview in which McConnell told Baier he’d “absolutely” support Trump if he ran again. But Trump was still frustrated with McConnell and how he’d mismanaged the Trump era, calling him a “stupid f-cker.”
Before the meeting, personal aides and staff of the club milled about. Many people let me know that Trump was in a great mood, in that way that clearly showed his mood hadn’t been great when they first arrived at Mar-a-Lago weeks prior.
In May, for the third interview with Hemingway, Trump called McConnell “a disgrace to the Republican Party. He’s gutless. He should have fought for us on the rigged election. Can you imagine Schumer saying ‘We have to declare Trump the winner to get the country going’?”
“The problem with the Republicans is they don’t know who to fight,” Trump added.
