The Democrats are not the only obstacle Donald Trump faces in trying to enact his “Make America Great Again” agenda.
RINO Republicans look to sabotage him at every turn.
And you won’t believe how Mitch McConnell is about to betray Donald Trump.
Mitch McConnell and other establishment Republicans work at the behest of the pro-amnesty donor class.
And they are pitching a fit over Donald Trump removing Bush-loyalist Kirstjen Nielsen as the Secretary of Homeland Security and wanting to appoint a conservative, like former Virginia Governor Ken Cuccinelli, or former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.
As Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell asked Republicans this week to head off problematic nominees before President Donald Trump officially picked them, the Kentucky Republican singled out Ken Cuccinelli.
Floated for the job of Homeland Security secretary, the former Virginia Attorney General runs the anti-establishment Senate Conservatives Fund. McConnell remarked Tuesday that the group had cost the GOP seats in 2010 and 2012 by guiding the party away from more electable candidates, according to attendees at the closed-door Republican policy lunch.
Now with McConnell up for reelection and eager to protect his narrow majority, it’s Senate Republicans who are trying to take control.
In addition to confronting Trump on his purge at the Department of Homeland Security and his threat to deploy auto tariffs and keep existing levies, GOP senators hope they can persuade the president to avoid nominating Cuccinelli or Kris Kobach, another immigration hard-liner, to lead DHS. They also want Trump to drop plans to nominate Herman Cain to the Federal Reserve and are considering whether to challenge Stephen Moore’s nomination to the Fed.
Both Cuccinelli and Kobach share Trump’s desire to crackdown on illegal immigration.
McConnell and the other RINO Republicans in the Senate want to tank those nominations to keep the flow of cheap labor running to their pay masters in the donor class.
