GOP leaders have been silent after former President Donald Trump took to Truth Social to criticize Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for not attempting to block the spending package to prevent a government shutdown.

The former president, in his post, described McConnell as an avid supporter of “Democratic sponsored bills. He has a DEATH WISH. Must immediately seek help and advise from his China loving wife, Coco Chow!”

This is not the first time Trump has attacked McConnell.

After Senate Republican leader voted for President Joe Biden‘s bipartisan infrastructure package Trump wrote, “Is McConnell approving all of these Trillions of Dollars worth of Democrat sponsored Bills, without even the slightest bit of negotiation, because he hates Donald J. Trump, and he knows I am strongly opposed to them, or is he doing it because he believes in the Fake and Highly Destructive Green New Deal, and is willing to take the Country down with him?”

In fact, McConnell has blocked various attempts by Democrats to get much of their agenda passed during Biden’s presidency.

A feud has been brewing between the former president and Senate minority leader since the January 6 insurrection when McConnell blasted Trump for not doing more.

One of the only Republicans to speak out against Trump’s racist rant was defeated Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming), who has led the investigation into Trump in the January 6 hearings, who called Trump’s words “absolutely despicable.”
