"Where necessary and appropriate, I will back primary rivals who espouse Making America Great Again and our policy of America First". "I think there's a whole bunch of stuff the party of Lincoln and Reagan needs to do to persuade people we have a 2030 agenda, not a 20-minute Twitter agenda".

In his statement, Trump criticized McConnell for failing to do more to back his unfounded claims of election fraud.

The two-page letter goes on to defend Trump as a man of Christian faith and criticizes Kinzinger for attacking the former president, reportedly saying: "You won't convince us otherwise with your terrible, rude accusations of President Trump!"

Giuliani did not represent Trump in his impeachment trial because the attorney was a "witness" in the case and gave a speech at the pro-Trump rally that preceded the Capitol attack in which he told the crowd it was time for "trial by combat". Trump adviser Jason Miller said an "earlier (version of the) statement was likely tougher. There was never a consideration to make a personal attack, though".

"The Republican Party is useless". "We want brilliant, strong, thoughtful, and compassionate leadership".

"I'm sorry what happened on January 6", Graham said even though he voted against convicting Trump for inciting the insurrection.

McConnell had remained loyal to Trump during almost all of his four years in office, when the pair were the two most powerful members of the Republican Party.

After 50 Democratic senators and seven Republicans voted that Trump was guilty - a majority in the 100-seat Senate, but not the two-thirds needed for a conviction - McConnell let loose, excoriating Trump for the attack that saw five people die and the halls of the U.S. legislature ransacked by his supporters.

Here's an explanation of how Trump's leaving office affects his criminal and civil exposure.

"There is no question former President Trump bears moral responsibility", McConnell wrote Monday in an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal of the riot.

"His behaviour during and after the chaos was also unconscionable".

CNN reported last month that McConnell had indicated he believed that impeaching Trump would make it easier to get rid of the former President and Trumpism from the Republican Party, according to a source with knowledge of the matter.

The districts' actions set up a collision course with the state Republican Party organization, where chairman Glenn Clary has supported a "big tent" approach to party membership.

Trump faces several civil lawsuits, including two defamation lawsuits filed by women who accused him of sexually assaulting them before he was elected president in 2016.
