Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Tuesday declined to speak about President Donald Trump's leadership in the aftermath of George Floyd's killing.


"I’m not going to critique other people’s performances," McConnell told MSNBC's Kasie Hunt.

But just last month, McConnell told former President Barack Obama that he should "keep his mouth shut" instead of criticizing Trump.
