For the second straight week Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was tight-lipped when asked about his party's presumptive nominee, Politico reports.
Asked Tuesday about Donald Trump's Federal Election Commission filings that show he has only $1.3 million cash in his campaign compared to Democrat Hillary Clinton's $42 million, McConnell said only, "I don't particularly want to sit here today and critique the presidential campaigns."
That was two words more than McConnell said last week when asked about questions that Trump had suggested President Barack Obama might be sympathetic to Islamic terrorist such as the Islamic State (ISIS.)
"I'm not going to be commenting on the presidential candidates today," McConnell said at the time.
Majority Whip John Cornyn also has been quiet the past two weeks when asked about Trump, Politico said.
