  • Donald Trump golden statue

McConnell's comments prompted an angry response from Trump.

Mr McConnell's interview is his latest attempt to show unity in the party, which since the election has confronted a growing divide between Trump-loyal Republicans and the more traditional party members.

"They (rioted) because they had been fed wild falsehoods by the most powerful man on Earth because he was angry he lost an election", McConnell said on February 13 following Trump's acquittal in his most recent impeachment trial.

Gonzalez isn't the only Republican who Trump may target heading into the 2022 mid-term elections.

After former president Donald Trump was acquitted by the Senate for a second time earlier this month, Senate Minority Leader Republican Mitch McConnell excoriated him for his role in inciting a violent mob of supporters to storm the Capitol, saying there was no question Mr Trump was "practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day".

Presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks before a capacity crowd at a rally for his campaign on April 10, 2016 in Rochester, New York. "Mitch McConnell at its helm", Trump said in response.

'I thought it was an important stand to take, ' he said.

Trump went on to spew false and biting personal attacks at McConnell and Chao, accusing the Republican leader of being soft on China because of "his family's substantial Chinese business holdings".

Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former Fox News Channel host, and Trump Jr.'s girlfriend, offered a pointed message to those who stand in opposition to the former president, who will not arrive at the conference until Sunday but was present in spirit in the form of a large golden statue erected in a merchandise show booth, where attendees could pose for pictures with it.

But McCarthy suffered an awkward moment at a press conference on Wednesday, when a reporter asked Cheney if Trump should be speaking at CPAC.

Instead, Mr McConnell attempted to put to bed claims of a civil war within the GOP.

"We will not win the future by trying to go back to where the Republican Party used to be", echoed Florida Senator Rick Scott, who chairs the fundraising committee tasked with electing Republicans to the Senate.

But when Baier pressed McConnell on the prospects of Trump running for president again, the GOP leader posited that Trump wouldn't be the only one in the race. He added that "there's a lot to happen between now and '24". "I've got at least four members, I think, that are planning on running for president, plus governors and others". There is no incumbent. "Should be a wide-open race and fun for you all to cover".
