President Donald Trump lavished praise on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

"Mitch McConnell and our Republican Senators have been very solid and strong," Trump claimed.

"We have accomplished a great deal together, in particular with our Courts, 107 federal judges (with many more to come) and two Supreme Court justices - we are getting into record territory," he argued.

"Thank you all and have a great Memorial Day weekend," he added.
