Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says keeping the Senate and the House strong during President Barack Obama's administration was one of the key components of Donald Trump's surprise victory last November.

"A lot of people talked about this being a 'change' election. Well, it actually wasn't," McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, told the Washington Examiner.

"The American people expressed confidence in the House and Senate. What they wanted, it seems to me, was someone who would signs bills that we passed."

In addition, McConnell's declaration that the Senate would not confirm a new Supreme Court judge until after the 2016 election, gave conservatives "a passionate reason to support the Republican nominee, whoever it was — including the unorthodox Trump," the Examiner says.

McConnell told the newspaper: "To reassure the public, Trump worked with the Federalist Society [to] come up with a list of highly credible conservative justices and put it out during the campaign."
