Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) had nothing but positive things to say about his Thursday meeting with Donald Trump.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee praised the GOP Senate leader during his comments at the D.C. meeting, POLITICO reported.

“We had a really positive meeting, he and I got a chance to talk a little bit, we shook hands a few times, he got a lot of standing ovations, it was an entirely positive meeting. Mitt Romney was there, as well, and I can’t think of anything to tell you about it that was negative,” McConnell said.

Sen. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) added that Trump “immediately went in to address Mitch McConnell and said he’s done his best while he was here. He understands elections. And he understands how important two seats are and we need to be focused on those.”

“There was a lot of unity. A lot of people think we’re going in the wrong direction now,” McConnell’s fellow Kentucky senator, Rand Paul said, adding that most of the discussions centered on policy.

“I haven’t seen that Republican group as strongly united on all of those policy issues in a long, long time,” said Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SD).

The Thursday meeting marked the first time the two leaders met in person since 2020.

Trump and McConnell hadn’t spoken to each other since December 2020, when they had a falling out over Trump’s plan to contest President Biden’s victory in that year’s election.

In March, McConnell endorsed Trump for the presidency.

“It is abundantly clear that former President Trump has earned the requisite support of Republican voters to be our nominee for President of the United States,” McConnell said in the statement after Trump secured the nomination on Super Tuesday.

  1. Don’t trust any of those hypocrite rhinos President Trump. Consider them in the same basket of radical democrats. Can’t trust them as far as you can throw them. Given the chance, they will abandon you in a wink of your eye as they will continue undermine at the first chance. A leporad doesn’t chsnge its spots no matter whete finds itself!
