Former President Donald Trump had harsh words for U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell this week.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is fighting to fend off a pro-Trump challenger to Sen. Lisa Murkowski, flooding airwaves with ads defending the Alaska Republican’s record. McConnell’s Senate Leadership Fund has spent millions to boost Murkowski’s reelection bid against conservative, pro-life Republican Kelly Tshibaka.

In a Sept. 14 post, Trump blasted McConnell for “working all out to help the absolutely horrible Senator from the Great State of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski, rather than fighting for, and helping to finance, the wonderful and very talented Kelly Tshibaka.”

He added, “Murkowski killed everything good for Alaska, including ANWR, a project which would have changed the course of our entire Country. Anything Mitch McConnell wants is bad, especially Lisa Murkowski. Vote for Kelly Tshibaka!!!”

The recent post is Trump’s latest effort to help Tshibaka unseat the 21-year incumbent, Murkowski.

This summer Trump headlined a massive rally in Anchorage in which he urged Alaskans to reject Murkowski and elect Tshibaka.

In the recent primary, Murkowski bested Tshibaka 45% to 39%. Both candidates, however, advanced to the Nov. 8 election, and recent polls indicate the race is too close to call.

  • Ed says:

    The Alaska Republican Party needs to show smart leadership — by insisting that there be only “ONE” Republican Senate candidate on that ballot. We cannot afford to divide the 60% majority conservative vote over some devious flaw in our current voting system. Flip a coin between the two, if need be! Otherwise, NEITHER will win, and we’ll be stuck (again) with four more years of twisted-representation.

    All Rinos need to go including Dunleavy.

    Mr Trump could not say anything real about eithe Kelly or Lisa Murkowski. He is a simple man. If they say they love me they are terrific. If they say something bad about me they are horrible. It’s all about him ego.

    We are dealing with an elite political establishment that no longer represents the people. They only work for the Corporatocracy or who will make them rich. You are seeing the dark hearts of men that Jesus warned us about. Please pray for the USA and all the world that we may resist and overcome their schemes to enslave the world. If you think it is simple politics, you have a childs understanding of the scope of evil we are dealing with. Get familiar with the World Economic Forum and The Great Reset. You are going to see things and experience things that you didn’t think possible in the USA. It will shake your spirit to the core and make you want to despair. Have hope and press forward for the truth, we serve a great King named Jesus Christ. They can only do what God allows and we are witnessing a new Great Awakening. Stand firm in the truth of the Gospel and never stop praying. They have been exposed and they will fight to the end. God’s people and the patriots of this nation must stand firm and peacefully refuse to comply with tyrannical dictates that violate our faith and rights under the Constitution. Alaska has many problems which are a result of corrupt government leadership and a broken Republican Party that no longer serves the working class. This must end for us to be a viable Republic again.
