Senator Mitch McConnell tried his best to be nice to Donald Trump. It likely does not matter to the President. He will hate the Majority Leader going forward.
“Our system of government has processes to determine who will be sworn in on January the 20th,” McConnell said. “The electoral college has spoken. So today I want to congratulate President-Elect Joe Biden. The President-Elect is no stranger to the Senate. He's devoted himself to public service for many years. I also want to congratulate the Vice President-Elect, our colleague from California, Senator Harris. Beyond our differences, all Americans can take pride that our nation has a female Vice President-Elect for the very first time. I look forward to finishing out the next 36 days strong with President Trump. Our nation needs us to add another bipartisan chapter to this record of achievement.”
