Now in paperback with a foreword by President Donald J. Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s memoir shows how one of the most successful public figures of our time has worked to advance conservative values in Washington.
Under Mitch McConnell’s famously quiet and strategic leadership, Republicans in the Senate have seen win after win—from tax cuts and deregulation to major improvements for veterans, farmers, and our national defense. In 2018, President Donald Trump dubbed McConnell “the greatest leader in history”—and even his harshest critics on the Left acknowledge his skill.
Now with a new foreword by President Trump and an afterword that details McConnell’s friendship with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, this paperback edition of McConnell’s memoir reveals the backdrop of his decision not to fill Scalia’s vacant seat until after the 2016 presidential election. Of this decision, New York Times chief Washington correspondent Carl Hulse wrote that “McConnell not only preserved a Supreme Court seat, he elected Donald Trump president.”
The years of the McConnell-led Senate have proved that lasting change can only be won by playing the long game. Leading up to the 2020 election, when the system of government our Founding Fathers created will again be threatened by the Left, this book is necessary reading for anyone who wants to avoid repeating the mistakes of our recent past.
'FANTASYLAND': McConnell Says It’s ‘Inconceivable’ 67 Senators Will Vote to Remove Trump
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell threw more cold-water on the Democrats’ impeachment frenzy Tuesday; saying “it’s inconceivable” that 67 Senators will vote to remove President Trump from office.
“It’s inconceivable to me that it would be 67 votes to remove the president from office,” McConnell told reporters during the third day of the public impeachment inquiry.

McConnell made similar comments last week.
“I can’t imagine a scenario under which President Trump would be removed from office with 67 votes in the Senate,” McConnell told USA Today.
“Nothing is happening because House Democrats seized with Trump derangement syndrome are consumed with this argument with the president,” he said.
McConnell made similar comments last week; telling reporters “I will say I’m pretty sure how it’s likely to end. If it were today, I don’t think there’s any question it would not lead to a removal.”
Meanwhile, House Democrats refuse to commit to a formal timeline of their investigation into the President’s dealings with Ukraine.
“I haven’t had a lot of time to pay attention to the president’s tweets and the legal implications of them. I just think that was totally wrong and inappropriate and typical of the president,” Pelosi told CBS News.
“I have no idea,” she responded when asked if the process could drag-on into 2020.
BREAKING: McConnell REJECTS Pelosi’s Impeachment Demands, Says Her Party's ‘Turn is Over’
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell sharply rejected Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s demands regarding any impeachment trial; saying the Democratic Party’s “turn” in shaping the process “is over.”
“Their turn is over. They’ve done enough damage. It’s the Senate’s turn now to render sober judgment,” McConnell told lawmakers Friday. “We can’t hold a trial without the articles. The Senate’s own rules don’t provide for that.”

“Will we fulfill our duty to conduct a fair impeachment trial of the president of the United States or will we not? That is most pressing question facing this Senate,” said Sen. Schumer moments later. “The country just saw McConnell’s answer to that question. The answer is no.”
