Following President Trump’s and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s joint press briefing, ForAmerica President David Bozell released the following statement reacting to Sen. McConnell’s remarks:
“The Majority Leader just demonstrated on live TV to the American people why he has the worst home state approval rating of anyone in the Senate and needs to step down.  Mitch McConnell’s belly-aching about all the time it takes to approve Presidential personnel doesn’t hold any water when 1) every other Senate before his has managed to do this in a timely manner, and 2) his Senate works an average of 2.5 days per week.
