"I think we're going to have a crowded field for president," McConnell said, answering a question about his thoughts on Trump again running for president.
The senator echoed a February 2021 comment—made less than two weeks after he claimed Trump's words before the Jan. 6, 2021 breach of the capital were "disgraceful dereliction of duty"—when he told Fox News that he believed "at least four members" were planning on running for president, alongside Republican governors.
"There's no incumbent. Should be a wide-open race," the lawmaker said at the time.
McConnell also said he'd "absolutely" support Trump if the 45th president were to become the Republican presidential nominee in 2024.
