GOP Senators Tweet Trump in Support of McConnell
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Senate Republicans are rallying in support of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, pushing back against the onslaught of criticism from President 
Donald Trump.
 
Republicans took to Twitter, their president's preferred means of communication. They're praising McConnell as a gifted leader backed by his 
52-member caucus.
 
They cast him as a Republican intent on delivering for the party and the president on taxes and budget this fall. A number of GOP lawmakers pointedly reminded Trump and other Republican critics that it was McConnell who ensured the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.
 
No. 2 Senate Republican John Cornyn of Texas tweeted, "Passing POTUS's legislative agenda requires a team effort. No one is more qualified than Mitch McConnell to lead Senate in that effort."
 
The show of support came from moderates and conservatives.
