On Wednesday, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon called for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to resign due to a lack of urgency in the Senate.
I’m to the point that I think Mitch McConnell, to really bring unity to the Republican Party and get things done, I think Mitch McConnell ought to tender his resignation.”
“What he ought to do is offer to resign as soon as taxes are done,” added Bannon. “We can’t do it in the middle of taxes. … Because, I’ve got to tell you, there needs to be a sense of urgency in the Senate.”
Bannon returned to Breitbart News after leaving the official Trump administration. He brought his publication’s brand of white nationalism and railing against the GOP establishment to aid Donald Trump in his presidential campaign. Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell is the figurative head of that Republican establishment.
But the personal attention Bannon garnered and his loyal following among the alt-right often overshadowed the man he worked for. Once he became a liability, Bannon was asked to go.
President Donald Trump alternates between working with McConnell on major legislation and feuding with him whenever that legislation fails.
So impt Rep Senators, under leadership of @SenateMajLdr McConnell get healthcare plan approved. After 7yrs of O’Care disaster, must happen!
