Mitch McConnell Makes Urgent Plea for Vaccinations

Former President Donald Trump has castigated Mitch McConnell for failing to scrap the filibuster - saying the Republican Senate leader is a "stupid person" who obstructed his legislative agenda when he was in the White House. "He’s a stupid person," Former President Trump told Vanity Fair in an interview published on Monday, local time. "I don’t think he’s smart enough … I tried to convince Mitch McConnell to get rid of the filibuster, to terminate it, so that we would get everything, and he was a knucklehead and he didn’t do it.” The filibuster is a mechanism where a party needs 60 votes in the Senate to stop debate on a bill and move forward with a vote. In practice, it means the party who does not hold power in the Senate can stop a bill from passing by endlessly debating a bill -ensuring the legislation is gridlocked. If a party removes the filibuster it means a bill can pass the Senate by a simple majority, which is 51 votes out of the 100-member-chamber. When Mr Trump was in office he was in favour of removing the filibuster in order to speed up the passage of his legislative agenda. However, Senator McConnell told Fox News earlier this year he denied then President Trump's request to scrap the rule. "President Trump tried to get me to orchestrate the end of the filibuster for a number of years, even tweeted about it, and I said ‘no, Mr. President, that is not in the best interest of the institution … it’s actually not in your best interest either,’” Senator McConnell said. Since the Democrats hold the House, Senate and President, the filibuster is one way for Republicans to stymie President Joe Biden's agenda. The comments are part of a long-running feud between Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump. Senator McConnell disputed Mr Trump's baseless claim he won the 2020 president election and said he was also partially culpable for the January 6th insurrection on Capitol Hill. In the aftermath of his comments, Former President Trump launched a blistering attack on Senator McConnell, labelling him a "dour, sullen and unsmiling political hack" and claimed he was responsible for Democrats winning back the Senate.<p>Former President Donald Trump has castigated Mitch McConnell for failing to scrap the filibuster - saying the Republican Senate leader is a "stupid person" who obstructed his legislative agenda when he was in the White House.
