Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Tuesday said that anyone who calls for the termination of the Constitution “would have a very hard time being sworn in as president of the United States.”
These comments by McConnell appear to be a direct response to the recent comments made by former President Donald Trump, who recently said that all laws, rules, and even certain parts of the Constitution should be terminated because of the reports that came out of Twitter regarding the company’s attempts to limit the reach of the story regarding Hunter Biden’s stolen laptop before the 2020 presidential election.
McConnell, when asked about whether he supported Trump in his 2024 presidential bid, said that in his view, “it would be pretty hard to be sworn into the presidency if you’re not willing to uphold the Constitution.”
McConnell’s comments followed those comments made by many Senate Republicans who publicly condemned Trump over the suggestion that the Constitution should be terminated. Trump, in his comments on Truth Social, had called for the constitution to be suspended so that he could either be reinstated in the White House or the 2020 presidential race could be run again.
This is the second time this week that McConnell has blasted Trump, as previously he had said that Trump would have a hard time winning the GOP nomination following his dinner with Ye and white supremacist Nick Fuentes. Both of them are known for their antisemitic and even racist comments.
