McConnell: Obama 'Is Controlled by Far-Left Environmental Extremists'
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in tonight’s exclusive interview on “The Kelly File” that his first order of business is a vote on the Keystone XL pipeline.
McConnell called it “a decision [Obama’s] been sitting on for five years.”
“He is controlled by the far-left environmental extremists in this country,” McConnell said, adding that Obama doesn’t want to do most of the things that Americans “think make good sense.”
Megyn Kelly asked McConnell: How will you be different than Harry Reid as Senate majority leader?
“We’re going to be voting on things, I’m not gonna try to prevent votes on things that Barack Obama doesn’t like,” McConnell said.
McConnell said that he believes there’s a pool of Democrats “that have had it with the president” and are interested in accomplishing things in the Senate.
“Whether the president will sign these bills or not remains to be seen,” he said.
