McConnell not a fan of Trump tweets

By  | 

WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is criticizing President Donald Trump for going off message on Twitter and elsewhere.

McConnell tells reporters that "I'm not a great fan of daily tweets" - but adds that he is a fan of what Trump has actually been doing.

And on substance, McConnell claims, Trump is not much different from how Marco Rubio, Mitt Romney or Jeb Bush would have been as president.

McConnell praises Trump's Cabinet picks as "truly outstanding."

And the Kentucky Republican says that despite "the extra discussion that he likes to engage in ... we're going to soldier on. We like his positions and we're going to pursue them as vigorously as we can."
