Former President Trump had called out Mitch McConnell last night saying it “looks like [he] if folding to Democrats, again”:
"Looks like Mitch McConnell is folding to the Democrats, again," fmr. President Donald Trump said in a statement from his Save America PAC. "He’s got all of the cards with the debt ceiling, it’s time to play the hand. Don’t let them destroy our country!" https://t.co/NyEuPOciHJ pic.twitter.com/wXyNw1QA4l

Now let’s see what Mitch McConnell does in December:
You know, I have beefs with McConnell, but the idea that he “rolled over” or “caved” when he’s clearly setting the Dems up for pain is silly.
No one is better at this.
