Breitbart: Donald Trump: Mitch McConnell Should Have Threatened McCain, Murkowski, Collins Chair Positions

By Charles Spiering

President Donald Trump believes that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell did not do everything possible to pass an Obamacare replacement bill.

When reporters asked Trump why he continued to batter McConnell despite support for the Senate Majority Leader from his Republican colleagues, he replied shortly, “Don’t make anything of it, we should have health care approved.”

He hinted that McConnell should have threatened to remove Sen. John McCain, Sen. Lisa Murkowski, or Sen. Susan Collins from their chair positions in the Senate to force them to vote for the health care bill.

“He should have known that he had a couple of votes that turned on him and that should have been very easy to handle, whether it’s through the fact that you take away a committee chairmanship or do whatever you have to do,” Trump said, offering advice for McConnell.

Trump said that the Republican Senate’s failure to pass a repeal or replace Obamacare plan was “unacceptable,” especially after they promised voters that they would do it.
