Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Wednesday that he is "extremely uncomfortable" with the continued high level of security at the U.S. Capitol, noting that there are currently no serious threats against Congress.

"With all this razor wire around the complex, it reminds me of my last visit to Kabul," McConnell told reporters at a press conference.

On Tuesday the Pentagon approved a request to continue National Guard support at the U.S. Capitol through May 23.

In all, about 2,300 troops will remain, half the number that is currently there, the Department of Defense said Tuesday evening.
