Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Friday that the “socialists” who have been harassing him and other Republicans at restaurants in recent weeks aren’t trying to debate issues, but rather to intimidate people.
“I will not be intimidated by these people,” the Kentucky Republican told reporters.
He has been the target of protests in recent weeks, as were Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and White House adviser Stephen Miller.
The protesters call themselves Democratic Socialists and one of their major issues is demanding an end to the agency responsible for interior enforcement of immigration laws, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.Mr. McConnell said.
