“The President and I have the same goals, I trust him.” –Sen. Mitch McConnell

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell still trusts Donald Trump, despite the President’s attacks on him and the rest of the GOP, Senator McConnell said Sunday on TV .

The President has blamed Republican members of the Senate, specifically Senator McConnell for the failure to repeal and replace Barack Obamacare, 1 of the President’s signature campaign vows.

But despite the supposed ill feelings, when asked if  Senator McConnell trusts the President, the Senator  firmly responded, “I Do.”

Last week, the President dampened fake news rumors of infighting, saying that he and Senator McConnell are “closer than ever before.” He also noted that he and Senator McConnell are ultimately fighting for the same things.

In that vein, Senator McConnell on TV noted the confirmation of several of President Trump’s major nominees for executive and judicial positions.

The more amicable relationship has developed in the weeks since President Trump unleashed a Twitter tirade about Senator McConnell in late August: “The only problem I have with Mitch McConnell is that, after hearing Repeal & Replace for 7 years, he failed!” he wrote. “That should NEVER have happened!”

In response to Q’s about that admonition, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that President Trump’s relationship with GOP leaders are “fine.”

Have a terrific week.
