Trump Allies to McConnell: ‘You Can Expect to Get Hit Back’
Republicans aligned with former President Donald Trump are vowing to push America First primary candidates in future elections, returning fire at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) over recent critical remarks. “Our goal is to win back the House and Senate,” Trump senior adviser Jason Miller told The Hill. “We’ll be looking at open seats, Democratic-held seats, and maybe there are places where we look for upgrades and more MAGA-friendly voices. I have no idea why McConnell decided to lash out at the president this way, but when you do, you can expect to get hit back.” “If you’re a Never-Trumper, anti-Trump kind of person, you’re going to have a tough time winning in a primary going forward — that’s just the way it is,” Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) said of McConnell’s pledge to cultivate GOP candidates for the 2022 midterm elections.
Biden on Immigration Reform Push: Will Correct ‘Wrongdoings of the Past Administration’
President Biden praised the introduction of his U.S. Citizenship Act immigration reform legislation in Congress on Thursday, taking several shots at the Trump administration in the process…. The proposed bill would offer amnesty for an estimated 11 million illegal aliens in the U.S. but the actual number of illegals in the country is widely assumed to be much higher. A 2018 study by professors at Yale University estimated the correct figure at anywhere from 16 million to 30 million, with the most likely figure being 22 million.
