Trump-directed email criticizes McConnell, includes polling graphic

House Republicans received an email Monday from a White House aide that showed a graphic critical of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and said that it was sent at the request of President Donald Trump.

A graphic was attached to the email, obtained by NBC News, and it showed a timeline of McConnell’s polling numbers over since May against his 2020 Democratic challenger Amy McGrath. It suggested that McConnell was re-elected only because of Trump.

It said, “Sadly, Mitch forgot. He was the first one off the ship!”

The email was sent after a meeting between the president and House Republicans Monday about “fighting back” against unfounded claims of voter fraud.
