Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is criticizing President Trump for going off message on Twitter and elsewhere, the AP reports. McConnell tells reporters that "I'm not a great fan of daily tweets"—but adds that he is a fan of what Trump has actually been doing. The Kentucky Republican says that despite "the extra discussion that [Trump] likes to engage in ... we're going to soldier on. We like his positions and we're going to pursue them as vigorously as we can." On substance, McConnell claims, Trump is not much different from how Marco Rubio, Mitt Romney, or Jeb Bush would have been as president. He also says Trump's Cabinet picks have been "truly outstanding." (More Mitch McConnell stories.)
