Reports say Trump and McConnell aren’t speaking. Here’s the real story.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pushed back against the media narrative that his relationship with President Donald Trump is on the rocks in a statement released Wednesday afternoon.

McConnell said he and the president communicate regularly to collaborate on Republican Party priorities, which include tax reform, infrastructure legislation, avoiding a government default, and continuing to seek alternatives to the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.

“We are committed to advancing our shared agenda together and anyone who suggests otherwise is clearly not a part of the conversation,” McConnell said.

A senior White House official told CNN that meetings between Trump and McConnell are being scheduled for Congress’s first week back in early September. The official said the two decided it would be better to talk in person than to set up phone calls.

White House press secretary also released a statement saying the president and McConnell “remain united on many shared priorities, including middle class tax relief, strengthening the military, constructing a southern border wall, and other important issues.”


Still on speaking terms after all?
