President Trump SLAMS Mitch McConnell and Hangs Up on Liberal Interviewer
President Trump was kind enough to do an interview with NPR earlier this week. You know with NPR it wasn’t going to be an honest interview, nevertheless, President Trump agreed to it because he’s not afraid of the media and afraid of questions like Joe Biden is.
President Trump talked about several things on the show ranging from the mandates to the economy and even Mitch McConnell.
The host asked President Trump why the majority of the Republicans in the Senate are not standing behind him (Trump).
“Because Mitch McConnell is a loser,” Trump said. “And frankly, Mitch McConnell, if he were on the other side and if Schumer were put in his position, he would have been fighting this like you’ve never seen before. He would have been fighting this, because when you look at it, and this is long – is a long way from over.”
But then, the interview went from bad to worse and led to President Trump actually hanging up on the host and ending the interview.
TRUMP: “Let me ask you this question. How come Biden couldn’t attract 20 people for a crowd? How come when he went to speak in different locations, nobody came to watch, but all of a sudden, he got 80 million votes? Nobody believes that, Steve. Nobody believes that.”
INSKEEP: “If you’ll forgive me, maybe because the election was about you. If I can just move on to ask, are you telling Republicans in 2022 that they must press your case on the past election in order to get your endorsement? Is that an absolute?”
TRUMP: “They are going to do whatever they want to do – whatever they have to do, they’re going to do. But the ones that are smart – the ones that know, you take a look at, again. You take a look at how Kari Lake is doing, running for governor. She’s very big on this issue. She’s leading by a lot. People have no idea how big this issue is, and they don’t want it to happen again. It shouldn’t be allowed to happen, and they don’t want it to happen again.”
INSKEEP: “I want to –”
TRUMP: “And the only way it’s not going to happen again is you have to solve the problem of the presidential rigged election of 2020.”
INSKEEP: “Mr. President, if I —”
TRUMP: “So Steve, thank you very much. I appreciate it.”
INSKEEP: “Woah, woah, woah, I have one more question. I want to ask about a court hearing yesterday on Jan. 6. Judge Amit Mehta. He’s gone. OK.”
So to speak on part of the interview, I don’t think that the 2020 election is going to be a strong area of focus in the upcoming election even if President Trump runs again. Everyone already knows what happened and they don’t need to be reminded. We’ll remember when it comes time.
