Trump breaks post-impeachment trial silence to lash out at Mitch McConnell

U.S. President Trump departs Washington on travel to Texas at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland

While speaking with Fox News hosts Harris Faulkner and Bill Hemmer about the passing of conservative radio personality Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday, Trump answered questions about the late radio personality's take on the 2020 USA presidential election, once again insisting that he had "won" on November 3.

Those remarks came after McConnell slammed Trump at the conclusion of the impeachment trial, saying the former President was "practically and morally" responsible for the January 6 siege on the Capitol. "Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again", he added.

The Republican Party is falling apart after former US President Donald Trump launched a frontal personal attack on the powerful leader of its legislative branch, calling him a "political hack" who should be dumped by GOP lawmakers.

Trump notably took aim at former political ally McConnell, claiming in a Tuesday statement that the Senate minority leader's "dedication to business as usual, status quo policies, together with his lack of political insight, wisdom, skill, and personality", is the reason why Republicans lost the majority in the Senate.

The storm arrived over a three-day holiday weekend that has seen the most USA air travel since the period around New Year's. At DFW, the temperature was 4 degrees Fahrenheit (-15 degrees Celsius) - 3 degrees (-16 degrees) colder than Moscow.

It said Trump was warned that the dispute could harm him, but seemed not to mind. He has also recently signaled he would oppose Trump-backed Republican Senate primary candidates if he believes they are not electable. Jeff Flake, a former Republican senator from Arizona, has said the party should move on from Trump. He did not seek to defend Trump's actions, and in statements and interviews has continued to blame Trump for the violence.

Mr Trump also appeared to be keeping a close eye on his successor Joe Biden, and had evidently tuned into the Democrat's town hall event on Tuesday night.

"The country is moving past the Trump Presidency, and the GOP will remain in the wilderness until it does too", the op-ed said. Republican officeholders still fear Trump, even without his Twitter account. "If he spent the same time hitting [Senate Majority Leader Charles] Schumer and Biden, the Republicans would be much better off", Trump said on Wednesday.

Asked whether he missed being president, Mr Trump replied: "I do".
