Greeted at the Republican National Convention with a mixture of boos and cheers, the Senate majority leader from Kentucky portrayed Clinton as unfit to handle the challenges currently facing the United States. He contended the former secretary of state has changed her views too often to be trusted.
"I am here to tell you Hillary Clinton will say anything, do anything, and be anything to get elected president. And we cannot allow it," McConnell said.
In response to McConnell's speech, Clinton's campaign claimed he did not attack her until she ran for president. It shared on Twitter a picture with McConnell saying "We're good friends" in 2014.
McConnell is often considered a part of the so-called "establishment" lane of the Republican Party. That puts him in direct contrast with some Trump supporters, who have seized on the businessman's criticism of political elites.
