Former President Donald Trump reportedly predicted on Saturday that the GOP will retake the House and Senate in 2022, though from the sounds of it, he isn’t necessarily thrilled at the prospect of a future Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Speaking to top Republican donors at an event at his Mar-a-Lago resort, the former president also expressed confidence that the GOP will retake the White House in 2024.

I stand before you this evening filled with confidence that in 2022, we are going to take back the House and we are going to reclaim the Senate — and then in 2024, a Republican candidate is going to win the White House,” he said, according to Alex Isenstadt of Politico.

“The key to this triumphant future will be to build on the gains our amazing movement has made over the past four years,” he continued, according to the Associated Press.

“Under our leadership, we welcomed millions upon millions of new voters into the Republican coalition. We transformed the Republican Party into a party that truly fights for all Americans.”

However, when he spoke about how “we” had “transformed the Republican Party,” he certainly didn’t seem to mean McConnell.

According to multiple reports, during the speech the former president slammed the Senate Minority Leader as a “dumb son of a bitch” and “total stone cold loser.”

If we had a real leader instead of Mitch, who is a total stone cold loser, if we had a real leader, he would have never, ever accepted the results of that election,” he said at one point, according to John Dawsey of The Washington Post.

He also reportedly took credit for McConnell winning reelection and took shots at his wife, former top Trump administration official Elaine Chao.

The anger was clearly motivated by McConnell’s refusal to not stand by his side anymore after the Electoral College voted on Dec. 14th to certify current President Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory.

Despite the vote, then-President Trump continued to challenge the election results up until the riot at the U.S. Capitol weeks later on Jan. 6th. Only after the riot did he relent and issue a public statement acknowledging that he’d lost.

On Saturday, Trump also reportedly expressed continued anger at former Vice President Mike Pence for also not sticking by his side.

While admitting that he still likes Pence, according to Shane Goldmacher of The New York Times, he also said that he wished his vice president had “had the courage” to not certify the election for Biden and that he was “so disappointed” in him.

Pence ultimately certified the election results and announced the certification publicly hours after the Jan. 6th riot.

Despite all the anger aimed at his own party, the former president did come after Biden as well for allowing “murderers,” “rapists” and “drug dealers” to stream across the border.

He also recalled how someone had suggested to him that the coronavirus vaccine be dubbed the “Trumpcine.”

And finally, he took shots at National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, whose performance in the Biden administration has been widely panned.

According to the AP, the speech was part of the Republican National Committee’s annual weekend donor summit.

“The former president delivered his remarks behind closed doors at his Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago, in the final address of the Republican National Committee’s weekend donor summit in Palm Beach. Most of the RNC’s invitation-only weekend gathering was set at a luxury hotel four miles away, but attendees were bused to Trump’s club for his remarks,” the outlet reported.
