Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson Slams President Trump for His Attacks on Mitch McConnell

Asa Hutchinson lashed out on Sunday at Donald Trump for being ‘divisive’ after the former president attacked several Republican leaders during a GOP fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago.

During the Saturday fundraiser, Trump said he was ‘disappointed’ in his former Vice President Mike Pence and claimed Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell is a ‘dumb son of a bitch.’

Hutchinson, the Republican governor of Arkansas, told CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ host Jake Tapper: ‘Well, anything that is divisive is a concern and is not helpful for us fighting in the battles in Washington and at the state level.’

‘In some ways, it’s not a big deal what he said, but at the same time whenever it draws attention, we don’t need that,’ he continued.

‘We need unity. We need to be focused together,’ he added. ‘We have slim majorities or slim numbers in Washington and we got battles to fight. So we need to get beyond that.’

This was not the first time Governor Hutchinson attacked President Trump.
Back in February Asa Hutchinson said he wouldn’t support Trump for reelection in 2024.
