Bannon Calls for Sen. McConnell to Resign as Majority Leader

(Fox News' "Hannity")

Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon is calling on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to resign his leadership post after Congress completes its tax reform work.

In remarks on Fox News' "Hannity," the Breitbart News CEO blasted McConnell for not doing enough to support President Donald Trump's legislative agenda.

"The House has actually voted, I think it's 180 bills, that the Senate has not taken up, including many bills [that] would be very difficult vote for [Sens.] Joe Manchin [D-W.Va.] and Claire McCaskill [D-Mo.] and Jon Tester [D-Mont.] and Heidi Heitkamp [D-N.D.] and all of these red state Democrats that we need to take down in 2018," Bannon said.

"And I will tell you, I'm to the point that I think Mitch McConnell, to really bring unity to the Republican Party and get things done, I think Mitch McConnell ought to tender his resignation," he said.

"What he ought to do is offer to resign as soon as taxes are done. We can't do it in the middle of taxes. But I think Mitch McConnell tomorrow should tender his resignation and say 'after we get taxes done, I will step aside, and we will have a revote on majority leader.'"
