Mitch McConnell to Step Down From Senate Leadership in November

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced on February 28 that he will step down as the Republican leader of the Senate in November.

McConnell, who turned 82 last week, announced his decision Wednesday in the well of the Senate, the chamber where he looked in awe from its back benches in 1985 when he arrived and where he grew increasingly comfortable in the front row seat afforded the party leaders.

McConnell is the longest-serving Senate leader in history; he will leave his seat in 2027. He was seen as the last major “roadblock” to Trump’s “America First” agenda having more Senate support. The gop establishment has a deeply entrenched apparatus in the Senate.

Drowning the U.S. in debt: One of McConnell’s most controversial legacies is the massive government spending he has enabled. “McConnell has served as gop leader since 2007 after serving as party whip since 2003,” Just the News reported, “at which time the U.S. national debt stood at $6.783 trillion. As of Wednesday, that figure stood at $34.405 trillion.”

Inevitable? McConnell’s exit is being reported as an inevitable reaction to the Republican Party coming under the influence of Donald Trump. McConnell has had a hot-and-cold relationship with the former president, supporting him through two impeachment inquiries launched by Democrats, but also publicly opposing him over the Ukraine War and the southern border.

The Hill reported:

gop senators say [McConnell] saw the writing on the wall in choosing this term to be his final as Senate Republican leader, arguing it’s increasingly obvious that the party is drifting away from him and embracing former President Trump as its likely presidential nominee.

The Republican Conference will select a new Senate leader. Sen. John Thune from South Dakota has been prepared for years to succeed McConnell in the Senate leadership; however, John Cornyn (Texas) and John Barrasso (Wyoming) are also vying for the job.

Divided party: Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry explains in America Under Attack that Republican leaders like McConnell have undermined President Trump and are intensifying the affliction on the United States.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s high-spending super-pac devoted vast amounts of money supporting anti-Trump Republicans like liberal Alaska senator Lisa Murkowski but spent next to nothing supporting pro-Trump Republicans like Arizona Senate candidate Blake Masters. He did this even though the Republican Party didn’t need much help in Alaska but desperately needed help in Arizona. So it’s pretty clear that McConnell and his supporters were more concerned about defeating the maga movement than defeating Democrats.

It is astounding that these establishment Republicans would rather live under the tyrant Barack Obama than support senators who back and support Donald Trump!

Bible prophecies in 2 Kings 14:26-27 and Amos 7 show that Trump will return to power. But he will have to “war,” even against other Republican leaders. President Trump’s opponents will continue to lose influence until he regains the presidency. Read America Under Attack to understand the full prophetic picture.
