New book reveals Trump’s apoplectic reaction to McConnell praising Biden

Donald Trump “spat swear words” at then Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) After McConnell praised Joe Biden on his election victory in a Senate speech, reporters at the Washington Post Bob Woodward and Robert Costa write in their next book “Peril”.

Trump was reportedly apoplectic with McConnell for his congratulatory Dec. 15 comments and berated him in a furious phone call as being disloyal, according to excerpts from the book Insider published Thursday.

“You lost the election, the Electoral College spoke,” McConnell told Trump.

The Kentucky Republican hoped this would be “the last time he and Trump would speak to each other,” Woodward and Costa wrote.
