Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump took issue with Sen. Mitch McConnell on Wednesday after his own party's majority leader in the upper chamber called Democrat Hillary Clinton "capable" of being president.
In the interview with New York's NY1, McConnell also suggested
Trump needs to make changes from his GOP primary rhetoric now that the campaign has pivoted to the general election.
"That worked fine for you in the primaries," McConnell said he has told Trump. "But now that you are in the general, people are looking for a level of seriousness that is typically conveyed by having a prepared text and teleprompter and staying on message."
When asked about Clinton, McConnell described her as "intelligent and capable."
Though Trump did not mention McConnell specifically, he did appear to take issue with him on Twitter, referencing the House GOP majority report on the Benghazi attacks, released on Tuesday.
