McConnell, who has a long history of working on civil rights issues, is deeply concerned that Trump is reopening long-festering racial tensions, something that could fan the flames ahead of demonstrations expected in Lexington, Kentucky, the source told CNN.

"The white supremacist, KKK, and neo-nazi groups who brought hatred and violence to Charlottesville are now planning a rally in Lexington", McConnell said in the statement.

He added that "we all have a responsibility to stand against hate and violence, wherever it raises its evil head". He said, "You also had people that were very fine people, on both sides".

The statement was in line with comments the day before from House Speaker Paul Ryan, who said "white supremacy is repulsive", but ignored the president's comments. I have condemned many different groups, but not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. "Their messages of hate and bigotry are not welcome in Kentucky and should not be welcome anywhere in America", McConnell said in his statement. McConnell's wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, was standing next to Trump during his Tuesday press conference.

Conservatives want Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to resign his position and make way for a more effective leader, according to a poll by FedUp PAC. "After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?"

While McConnell and his spokespeople remained largely tight-lipped about the public spat, Trump had no problem taking questions about it before reporters on Thursday, leaving the door open to calling for McConnell's resignation.

Senate's mainstream chief Mitch McConnell, during several from the hardest remarks in the recent times, got into the American leader at the beginning of the week due to the inability of getting a handle on the way the legislative body functions in addition to the "unnecessary desires" with reference to making the legal proposals approved.
