Donald Trump called on Republicans to get rid of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell – and revealed he has made up his mind about whether to run for the White house in 2024.
Speaking with Sean Hannity at a Fox News town hall in Edinburg, Texas – near the U.S.-Mexico border – on Wednesday, the former president said, 'Well we need better leadership in the Senate level. You need better leadership. We need someone better than Mitch McConnell. Mitch McConnell could no longer do the job.'
Trump appeared on the Hannity-hosted town hall after going on a tour of the unfinished border wall with Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Much of his discussion with Hannity revolved around border security and how his plans are changing under President Joe Biden.
Trump blamed Biden and what he called liberal RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) for the recent surge in border crossings. Hannity pointed out how Democrats want to grant amnesty to undocumented immigrants, but claimed that some Republicans want illegal immigration for cheap labor.

Donald Trump recently slammed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell while speaking with Sean Hannity at a Fox News town hall in Edinburg, Texas
Trump called out 'weak Republicans' and said the GOP needed someone better than McConnell
Hannity asked Trump if he made up his mind about running in 2024, to which the former president said, 'yes'
Trump added, 'And you have RINOs. You do have RINOs . . . You don't have any RINOs in this group, but you have RINOs. I call them weak Republicans.
'They walk into the White House, I've been watching it for four weeks now, they walk in, they meet Biden – he doesn't know what the hell is happening – they meet Biden, he's sitting, and they're talking about infrastructure and finally they walk out and they have a deal.
'And the deal is a terrible deal, but it's a deal. And it sort of reminds me of England a long time ago – 'We have a deal! We have a deal!' – You remember the deal they made with Germany?
'Not too good. That didn't work out too well . . . so they have a deal and then Biden cancelled the deal because the radical left said, 'you can't make that deal. That deal's not good. We want to spend $6 trillion.'
Trump was referring to President Joe Biden's infrastructure bill, which Biden revised after liberal Senator Bernie Sanders said he would not support it without a second, $6 trillion measure for 'human' infrastructure.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
Perhaps the most celebrated part of the town hall was when Hannity asked Trump about his future plans, to which the audience roared with applause. Hannity then asked the crowd, 'Would you like to see the president run again in 2024?'
Then, to Trump, he said, 'You're not gonna answer, but I have to ask . . . have you made up your mind,'
Once the applause died down, Trump said 'yes,' and the crowd cheered again.
