Former President Donald Trump slammed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and "RINOs" (Republicans in name only) on Sunday and said that strong candidates are needed to win the 2022 midterm elections.
During an interview with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures, Trump spoke about the importance of having strong candidates run in the primaries.
"We have candidates that are not strong, they're RINOs, and they're not strong," Trump said without revealing names. "We need tougher people. We need people that are going to be able to win for our country. Not win for me, by the way, [but] win for our country, and we have some great candidates."
Trump ripped McConnell over the debt ceiling and passage of the infrastructure bill.
