McConnell: 'Disrespectful' of Voters If I Didn't Support Trump

("CBS This Morning"/CBS News)

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday it would be "disrespectful" to the majority of Republican voters who helped Donald Trump win the presidential nomination not to support him.

Trump "won the nomination fair and square. He went out there and competed like everybody else. He got the most votes," McConnell said during an appearance on "CBS This Morning." "And I think it's disrespectful of the Republican electorate to say, 'I'm smarter than you are, and I'm not going to support your choice.'"

McConnell has endorsed Trump, though he would not say he is in agreement with the business mogul on all issues.

"Let me put it this way. We know what we get with Hillary Clinton: four more years just like the last eight," he said. "We know the average American is $3,000 worse off now than they were when President Obama came to office. The country is yearning for a change. And my view is four more years like the last eight is not good for the country.'

House Speaker Paul Ryan, McConnell's counterpart in the lower chamber, has declined so far to endorse Trump.

"Paul has his own view of this," McConnell said. "My view is the Republican primarily voters have spoken. I know what we get with Hillary Clinton. And I’d rather take my chances on somebody new who I think, particularly with regard to the Supreme Court is going to appoint people that I think would be better for the country."
