Trump Calls Mitch McConnell’s Gun Bill Threat the “Final Straw”

The bipartisan gun bill was sharply criticized by the former president Donald Trump on Thursday, endangering Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who had backed its advancement along with 13 other Republican lawmakers.

On June 12, following several mass shootings, twenty Republican and Democratic negotiators—led by GOP Senators John Cornyn of Texas and Thom Tillis of North Carolina, as well as Democratic Senators Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona and Chris Murphy of Connecticut—announced a framework for the bipartisan gun bill. With the support of 14 Republican senators, the legislation—which would be the most comprehensive gun reform bill to pass Congress in years—passed its first significant test on Tuesday.

Trump attacked the legislation, calling it a “career-ending bill,” in a post on Truth Social on Thursday morning. He also targeted McConnell.

The lаst strаw will be Mitch McConnell’s insistence thаt Republicаn senаtors support gun control. He is now requiring аpprovаl of the FIRST STEP IN TAKING AWAY YOUR GUNS, much like how he gаve аwаy the Debt Ceiling аnd received NOTHING in return, or how he gаve the Democrаts а greаt sound bite аnd victory with the Infrаstructure Bill, which is reаlly аll аbout the Green New Deаl. Trump wrote, “Republicаn Senаtors SHOULD NOT VOTE FOR THIS CAREER ENDING BILL!!
