McConnell: Little Difference Between President Trump and a President Bush or Rubio

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said Friday at a press briefing that President Trump’s policies differ little from what a “President Marco Rubio or President Jeb Bush” would have pushed.

“As I look at what we might have expected from a President Mitt Romney or a President Marco or a President Jeb Bush at the beginning of their tenures in office, I can’t see much difference between what President Trump is doing and what they would have done.”

McConnell praised President Trump’s “outstanding” cabinet, calling it the “most conservative cabinet” he had seen during his time in the Senate.

However, McConnell added that he disliked Trump’s “extra discussion,” which the president would usually start on Twitter.
