An open power struggle has broken out among US Republicans: Former President Donald Trump attacked his party’s powerful leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, with sharp words on Tuesday, suggesting his ouster. "The Republican Party can never be respected or strong again with political ‘leaders’ like Senator Mitch McConnell at its helm," Trump declared. "If Republican senators stand by him, they will never win again."
