Donald Trump criticized Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republicans over his election loss, even while telling GOP donors in a Saturday-night speech that the party will retake control of Congress in the 2022 midterm elections and the White House in 2024.

Speaking at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, the former president called McConnell a “dumb son of a bitch” for not fighting to overturn President Joe Biden’s victory, according to a person who attended the event.
