Trump builds front to depose McConnell - report

Former United States President Donald Trump has been engaged in talks with Republican senators in an effort to find a contender for Mitch McConnell's Senate minority leader position, The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday, citing sources familiar with the talks.

"Since failing to be re-elected, the former president has maintained high levels of support among conservative voters, and polls show he has convinced much of the party that the 2020 results were fraudulent," the outlet noted.

Trump has recently criticized McConnell's stance on infrastructure bills proposed by the Democrats, calling the republican "the most overrated man in politics."
