Donald Trump is still the leader of the Republican Party.
But Trump just experienced a setback.
And Donald Trump just got some bad news that he is going to hate.
Donald Trump detests Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Trump blames McConnell for not fighting hard enough against Joe Biden becoming President.
In addition, McConnell offended Trump by congratulating Joe Biden for winning the election after the Electoral College certified the results.
Trump then set about trying to oust McConnell as Minority Leader.
Conservatives grew angry at McConnell for continuing to surrender to Democrats on raising the debt ceiling.
McConnell also caved in to Joe Biden and provided the votes for a $1.2 trillion fake infrastructure bill that Democrats used as a down payment on the Marxist Green New Deal.
Donald Trump tried to recruit Senate candidates in races around the country to commit to opposing McConnell as the Republican leader in the Senate.
Eric Greitens in Missouri and Kelly Tshibaka in Alaska have committed to voting against McConnell as Republican leader in the Senate.
But in another sign that Republicans fully expect to win control of the Senate, Mitch McConnell announced he intended to run for Leader after the 2022 Midterm elections.
"I'm going to be running again for Leader later this year," @LeaderMcConnell tells reporters.

McConnell’s announcement is another expression of confidence to Senate Republicans that he believes he will be running for Majority Leader in 2023.
This news will not please Donald Trump as well as many on the Right who would like to see a conservative lead the Republican caucus in the Senate.
