Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told President Donald Trump in a "private meeting" that the Republican Party could be "screwed" if he continues to fight a war with the U.S. Postal Service.
According to Axios reporter Alayna Treene, McCarthy told the site, "We could lose based on that."
He reportedly spent "hours" with Trump trying to walk through the facts and figures and why it was so crucial for the president to tone down the conspiracy theories, but it was clear the president either didn't get it or didn't care.
"I tried to show him ... you know who is most afraid of COVID? Seniors," said McCarthy. "And if they're not going to go vote, period, we're screwed."
