President Donald Trump has kept the pressure on Senate Republicans amid his campaign election challenges and a push for $2,000 stimulus checks that would be a tough order for the party’s fiscal hawks.
“If a Democrat Presidential Candidate had an Election Rigged & Stolen, with proof of such acts at a level never seen before, the Democrat Senators would consider it an act of war, and fight to the death. Mitch & the Republicans do NOTHING, just want to let it pass. NO FIGHT!”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has proved to be less a supporter of the president this fall, saying he considered the White House off limits during coronavirus outbreaks, willfully jumping to defend Joe Biden as president-elect amid election challenges, and telling Republicans in the Senate to not jump on the effort to contest the Electoral College on Jan 6.
