Trump Fumes McConnell Does 'Nothing' as GOP Gets 'Creamed' in Redistricting

Former President Donald Trump said Republicans are getting "absolutely creamed" in the redistricting process, and took aim at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, accusing him of failing to help the party.

"Republicans are getting absolutely creamed with the phony redistricting going on all over the country," Trump said in a statement released Saturday.

"We were expecting to do well in New York and now, we'll lose 4 seats and the Old Broken-Down Crow, Mitch McConnell, sits back and does nothing to help the Party," Trump added.

He continued: "The only thing the Democrats are good at is cheating on elections, and the proof is out for everybody to see but hold on you haven't seen anything yet!"

Trump's statement comes after New York Governor Kathy Hochul on Thursday signed a new congressional maps into the law that gives Democrats an edge over Republicans. The new maps give Democratic candidates an advantage in 22 of the 26 districts in New York State. Currently, New York's delegation in the U.S. House of Representatives includes 19 Democrats and eight Republicans.

Republicans have sued over the new congressional and legislative maps. In a statement on Thursday about them, Rob Ortt, the GOP minority leader in the state senate, said "Democrats' hypocritical actions are blatant attacks on our political process."

Republicans faced another setback in the redistricting process in North Carolina on Friday, when the state's supreme court ruled that GOP-drawn congressional and state legislative maps were unconstitutional. The maps could have given Republicans control of 11 of the state's 14 congressional districts, but the court ruled they were "unconstitutional beyond a reasonable doubt" and gave lawmakers until February 18 to resubmit a proposal.

Newsweek reached out to McConnell's office for comment, but did not receive a response in time for publication on Saturday afternoon.

Trump has ramped up attacks on McConnell in recent months. In November, he criticized the Kentucky Republican for backing the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill. In December, he went after the minority leader for working with Democrats to increase the federal debt limit.

"The Dems would have folded completely if Mitch properly played his hand," Trump said in a statement at the time. "He has all the cards to win, but not the 'guts' to play them. Instead, he gives our Country away, just like he did with the two Senate seats in Georgia, and the Presidency itself. The Old Crow is a disaster!" Trump added.
