McConnell said he would support Trump if he were the Republican Party's nominee in 2024.
The comment came days after he accused Trump of being "practically and morally responsible" for the Capitol insurrection.
"Absolutely," McConnell said when asked if he would back Trump again if he won the GOP nomination.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday that he would back Donald Trump if he were the Republican Party's nominee for president again.
He made the comment during an appearance on Fox News' "Special Report" with Bret Baier.
Thursday's remarks came just days after McConnell accused the former president of "dereliction of duty" over the Capitol siege on January 6.
McConnell explained his vote to acquit by saying that impeachment was not the right avenue to hold Trump responsible given that its punishment is removal from office, and Trump had already left office by then. »
