McConnell's reaction to Trump's possible 2024 presidential run
Former US president Donald Trump could run for commander-in-chief in 2024, according to Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell.
After claiming Trump's words before the Jan. 6, 2021 breach of the capital were "disgraceful dereliction of duty" in February 2021, the senator told Fox News "at least four members" planned on running for president, along with Republican governors as well.
“I think we’re going to have a crowded field for president,” McConnell said, answering a question about his thoughts on Trump again running for president.
Meanwhile, Trump has been highly critical of McConnell’s public statements against him after Jan. 6, frequently referring to the Kentucky Senator as an “old crow.”
“The Republican Party can never again be respected or strong with political ‘leaders’ like Sen. Mitch McConnell at its helm,” Trump said in a statement in February 2021.
