McConnell unleashes on Clinton, claiming 'nothing will change'

The House and Senate passed versions of a bill that would have provided $1.1 billion to fight the virus, but negotiations fell apart last week over the provisions inserted by Republicans.

The Wisconsin Republican added that next week's Democratic convention will be a "four-day infomercial of politically correct moralizing".

"Hillary Clinton will say anything, do anything and be anything to get elected president", the Kentucky legislator said. McConnell said. "Donald Trump is certainly something new".

Before the convention, McDonald said, she thought McConnell had not come out forcefully enough for the party's then-presumptive nominee.

I know that sentence isn't likely to entertain or titillate - how often does Mitch McConnell fill that bill? - but we do need to remember that the '16 election is not just about the White House.

"Here it is everybody: we didn't disqualify Hillary Clinton to be president of the United States". He vetoed it. Donald Trump would sign it.


Two years ago voters delivered a clear verdict on the Obama years by sending a freshman class of rock-star Republicans to the Senate, and delivering us a majority that I promise to make you proud of.

We passed a bill to defund Planned Parenthood, Obama vetoed it. Donald Trump would sign it.

McConnell is correct that Democrats ultimately blocked the bill, but significant context about the Republicans role in the impasse is missing from his statement.

Though on Tuesday Republican delegates officially voted for Trump to be the party's presidential nominee, he won't officially accept the nomination until Thursday evening. "I think the broad Republican Party, the right-of-center world, is going to be largely united".

McConnell has urged fellow GOP senators to run their races without regard for the tumult surrounding Trump's spot at the top of the ticket.

Any fractures in party unity heal quickly when Republicans coalesce around the idea of beating Clinton, he said. I don't know, but I know this, if Hillary Clinton is our president nothing will change.
