WASHINGTON – The day after Republicans expanded their control of the Senate while losing the House, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warned Democrats against aggressively going after President Donald Trump.
“The Democrats in the House will have to decide just how much presidential harassment they think is good strategy,” the Kentucky Republican told reporters when asked about the likelihood of Democrats seeking to get Trump’s tax returns. “I’m not so sure it will work for them.”
While voters chose a divided government in Tuesday’s midterm elections, McConnell suggested they did so not to serve as a check on the GOP, but because they want both parties to work together to make progress on issues they care about.
“I think the message is, ‘Figure out what you can do together, and do it,’ ” McConnell said.
