McConnell: Biden 'got it wrong again' when he claimed GOP can't say 'what they're for'

McConnell, R-Ky., le dijo a Fox News que el Partido Republicano ha hablado sobre lo que los republicanos ven como los problemas más apremiantes en el país.

Durante su rueda de prensa del miércoles, Biden dijo que “fundamental question is ‘what’s Mitch for?'” before claiming the Senate minority leader would doanything to prevent Biden from being a success.

McConnell strongly disagreed with Biden’s claim, narración “Reporte especial” ancla Bret Baier, “my good friend the president got it wrong once again.

I helped him pass a bipartisan infrastructure bill, I supported in the Senate a bill to deal with China and the computer chip shortage,” él recordó.

If the president starts acting like a moderate like he campaigned, we can do business. The reason we’ve not been speaking recently this year is because he adopted the Bernie Sanders prescription for America. He did that even though he got no mandate for it, a 50-50 Senate and a couple of seatsmajority in the House, and they couldn’t get it through.

McConnell added that the American people, like himself, do not want the socialistic transformation of America that people like Sanders, a Vermont senator, envision.

If the president wants to reinvent himself and come back to the middle, we have things to talk about that we can work on together,” McConnell proffered.

He added that the American people also are not fans of the Build Back Better package, whether it is broken into pieces or not.

They want us to tackle all the problems that they are concerned about inflation at the top of the list, and a wide-open border.

McConnell also dismissed claims from Biden and Democrats that voting rights are still an issue in the U.S. casi 60 years after the Voting Rights Act was enacted. The senator, 79, recalled being a young Hill staffer in 1965 when Congress passed the landmark legislation.

He cited the record turnout by American voters in 2020, remarking that it was the highest rate of such since 1900.

Durante la entrevista, McConnell also reacted to Biden’s comments on the Russia-Ukraine situation, telling Baier he hopes President Vladimir Putin doesn’t misunderstand the American message:

No incursion into Ukraine is acceptable. What should we be doing about it right now? Bien, first we ought to be sending anti-tank weapons to the Ukrainians, helping them learn how to use them, and ground-to-air missiles to go after the helicopters that might be a part, obviously of any Russian incursion, as well as being ready to levy a level of sanctions the Russians have never experienced before,” él dijo.

In closing the interview, Baier pressed McConnell on former President Donald Trump’s role or prominence in the 2022 elecciones intermedias.

Do you think that former President Donald Trump will be a help to you in the midterm elections?” Baier asked.

I think the midterm election almost certainly is going to be a referendum on the party in power,” McConnell replied. “This is an entirely Democratic government: Democratic President, House and Senate, they are in charge of governing. And these midterm elections are always a report card on the performance of those who are in charge, those who are governing. I think the American people are about to send this administration a pretty big message that they do not approve of all the things that are going wrong.
