McConnell Faces Fire for Recognizing Biden as President-Elect: ‘People Are Angry’

Senate Majority Leader accused of caving to China

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is facing massive backlash from allies of President Donald Trump after congratulating Joe Biden and recognizing him as “President-elect Joe Biden.”

Trump himself responded to the news saying people are “angry.”

McConnell said he wanted to “congratulate the President-elect Joe Biden” and “Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.”

Trump tweeted:

“Mitch, 75,000,000 VOTES, a record for a sitting President (by a lot). Too soon to give up. Republican Party must finally learn to fight. People are angry!”

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene also weighed in:

“Every ‘Republican’ that isn’t fighting for @realDonaldTrump’s 2020 landslide victory is supporting the Chinese Communist Party takeover of America.”

Trump campaign attorney Lin Wood also responded calling McConnell a ‘traitor’ and vowing:

“His day of judgment is coming.”

“McConnell is NOT a Patriot. Ask his wife. She knows,” wrote Wood.

“McConnell just wants power, influence, & money. He is willing to sell America to get what he wants. McConnell is a traitor to American Patriots,” Wood continued.

Former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn joined the outcry by letting “McConnell know we aren’t on board with his ‘President Elect Biden’ mindset.’”

Flynn told Trump:

“Millions & millions & millions of Patriots stand behind, alongside & in front of you during this crucible moment in US History where our very Republic is on the line. We won’t fail or cower like some in the Republican Party have shown.”

Fox News host Mark Levin tweeted:

“Thanks for nothing, Mitch.”

McConnell along with Republican Whip Sen. John Thune (R-SD) and Rules Committee Chairman Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) all made calls for Republicans to refrain from objecting to electoral votes.

“I think that there was encouragement on the phone for us to accept the result, as much as it’s not what we, you know, would have envisioned for the next four years, and to try to do what’s best for American people, which is to look forward,” Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) said, according to the Hill.
