Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell came to the defense of President Donald Trump in a new interview, saying Democrats constantly harp on him for everything he says and does.

The Kentucky Republican was on Fox News Thursday night and was asked about the Democratic backlash to Trump's recent remark that he might accept opposition research from a foreign government — and may or may not go to the FBI with it.

"I said weeks ago, 'case closed.' We got the Mueller report, the only objective evaluation that will be conducted. Nobody has any confidence that the Democratic House is gonna engage in any kind of appropriate oversight," McConnell said.

"The case is closed. Why don't we move on and solve the border crisis and approve the president's USMCA, the new trade deal with Mexico and Canada? We have work to do."

Host Laura Ingraham then pressed McConnell to say whether Trump was out of line in his earlier comments.

"He gets picked at every day over every different aspect of it," McConnell said. "But the fundamental point is they're trying to keep the 2016 election alive and the investigation alive, when the American people have heard enough.

"I would ask the Democrats in the House this: Is there anything you're willing to other than harass the president for the next two years? Anything at all?"

Democrats are constantly feuding with Trump and have vowed to continue investigating him in the wake of the Mueller report. Some members of the party are even calling for him to be impeached.
