Trump plotted to oust Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), but was rejected by Senate Republicans.
Trump tried to pull off a coup in McConnell, but found no conspirators willing to help.
The Wall Street Journal reported, “Mr. Mr. Trump recently met with senators and allies. McConnell talks about trying to overthrow him, and people familiar with the conversation say no Republicans are interested in taking up the challenge. There is little appetite among Senate Republicans for such a plan, but discussions between the most influential figure in the Republican Party and its highest-ranking members in the elected office could deepen.
Even some of Trump’s allies. Like Sen, Tommy Tiberville (R-AL) has scrapped Trump’s plan to oust McConnell and replace him with someone of the former president’s choice.
The main reason Senate Republicans are so loyal to McConnell is money. Mitch McConnell raised millions of dollars to elect and re-elect Senate Republicans.
Donald Trump has raised 2 102 million with his Super PAC and has given zero dollars to Republican candidates.
Trump’s feud with McConnell has already cost Republicans a majority in the Senate and it could give them a chance to reclaim the Senate in 2022.
Donald Trump continues to humiliate himself by thinking that the Republican Party is just like an episode of The Apprentice, but without the presidency, Trump’s influence is gone and Senate Republicans have no reason to follow him.
