President Donald Trump early Friday retweeted two Fox News stories that were critical of Mitch McConnell and other Republican lawmakers who could face "fallout" for crossing him.

The first retweet was Fox's story covering Trump's statements Thursday implying that the Senate Majority Leader McConnell might have to step down if he fails to pass bedrock legislation before the end of the year.

The second retweet was a Fox story with a photo of Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake with the headline: "Senators learn the hard way about the fallout from turning on Trump."

Trump has been on the warpath against McConnell since Wednesday, when comments from the Kentucky Republican made earlier in the week surfaced that he believed the president suffered from "excessive expectations."

Since then, Trump reportedly called to chew out McConnell before unleashing a barrage of tweets over a 24-hour period before talking about him again later Thursday.

Flake has been on a bit of a crusade of his own against Trump while peddling his new book, telling Newsmax TV Monday that concepts like extreme nationalism and populism are "not much of a governing philosophy."

Flake on Sunday also chastised Republicans for continuing the sentiment of locking up Hillary Clinton and for not doing more to renounce the birtherism movement against Barack Obama.

Flake, up for re-election in 2018, carries an approval rating of 18 percent in his home state of Arizona.
