Marco Rubio Appears to Side With Trump in Ongoing Feud With Mitch McConnell

President Trump’s effort to oust McConnell appears to be picking up steam with Sen. Marco Rubio calling for delays

Sen. Marco Rubio, the Republican Senator from Florida, has announced that he will work toward 45th President Donald Trump’s goal of delaying the GOP Senate leadership vote in a bid to keep Minority Leader Mitch McConnell from retaining the role.

“Today I will try to postpone the GOP Senate leadership vote,” wrote Rubio, publicly aligning himself with Trump. “A vote won’t solve our internal differences, it will make them worse.”

Rubio called for “genuine unity” among the Republicans, and said it will not be possible if McConnell and his allies force a vote today.

“We aren’t going to have genuine unity until we make big changes to both our campaign & legislative efforts,” he wrote. “That will NEVER happen if we vote today.”

McConnell already faces one leadership challenge from Sen. Rick Scott, who many believe McConnell publicly spurned earlier this year.

Scott attempted to offer a vision to voters ahead of the election, and called it the Republican plan to “save America.” CNN notes that McConnell openly dismissed the points of Scott’s plan, and warned Republicans to stay away from it for fear that Democrats could use it to campaign against them.

As the coalition to oust McConnell grows, Rubio is not the first former enemy of 45th President Donald Trump to join.

Rubio, who once made a derogatory remark about the size of Trump’s “hands” during the 2016 campaign, is joined by Sen. Ted Cruz, who attempted a fierce fight to deny Trump the Republican nomination the same year.

In a podcast that went viral this week, Cruz slammed McConnell’s behavior as “indefensible” and accused him of “abandoning” America First candidates over his feud with Trump.

Watch an excerpt of Cruz’s remarks on Spreely.video:

“I you look at this last cycle, Mitch McConnell pulled the money out of Arizona,” said Cruz. “We could have won โ€” won Arizona.”

Cruz raged, “We nearly won Arizona and abandoning Blake Masters was indefensible.”

          P.S. cocaine Mitch poured the funding that should have been used for Lake and Masters in Arizona,to help the flailing Baby killing Murkowski. I despise both of them. The convoluted voting system in Alaska was implemented by Murkowski and her cronies like McConnell. Shameful.

          Ruby, regardless of whether or not any of us are happy with McConnell, why stoop so low as to sound like one of the misguided Democrats and demean Mrs. McConnell by calling her a China broad? I don’t know her background and whether or not she is an American born citizen just like I assume you are and know that I am. They already call all Republicans/Conservatives racist and comments like that just give them for fuel for their fires. I don’t like what the RINOs are doing by supporting views and bills that are detrimental to all of us, but name calling doesn’t help at all especially when aimed at family members.

    In AZ, Master publicly stated he WOULD NOT SUPPORT McConnell for leadership.

    McConnell JERKED THE FUNDING!!!

    He’s happy being the MINORITY leedur because it’s THE ONLY POSITION HE IS COMFORTABLE IN.

    I never say McConnell as an actual RINO. But i do believe that he has been a spineless incompetent. And as of late he has gotten worse. He does seem to working more and more for the dumocrats. So perhaps he is a RINO. He and Cheney could be team-mates.

    Why don’t the Conservative Republican Voters get to say who they want or don’t want for Speaker of the senate. Mitch Is nothing but a lazy swamp creature and he doesn’t want anything to change. He has the Republican Senate at his evil will. He and all the other political swamp slugs have everything just like they want it and to have someone like D.J.T. in Power is intolerable for a McConnell or Pelosi or Schumer. The sooner we get new blood in the Party the sooner we can begin to fix are corrupt Internal political Party swamp creature Problems
