Two GOP senators told The Hill about the conversations Graham, who played golf with Trump over the weekend, has had with his GOP colleagues.
One GOP senator described Graham as trying to mend fences between the two most powerful Republicans in the country, who have publicly warred throughout 2021.
“Lindsey was with the president this last weekend. From what I understand Trump said something complimentary about Mitch,” said a GOP senator, who described Graham’s efforts to help bury the hatchet between McConnell and Trump.
Another senator confirmed that Trump conceded to Graham that McConnell had indeed helped him at key moments, even though Trump now bashes McConnell regularly in public statements.
This comes as Trump is openly saying that Mitch McConnell should not be the Senate Majority Leader if the GOP retakes the senate in 2022.
He is also looking for a primary challenge to him.
Former President Donald Trump has made no secret of his disdain for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), But now, a new report indicates that Trump is actively working towards trying to get the Kentucky senator bounced from his leadership role.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the rift between Trump and McConnell has grown to the point where the former president is now actively working to get McConnell bounced as Republican leader when his current term is up at the beginning of 2023. The Journal reports that Trump is asking around about whether any Republicans would be interested in mounting a challenge.
Both Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell backed Biden’s terrible infrastructure bill.
