Remarks in an Exchange With Reporters During a Tour of McHenry County College in Crystal Lake, Illinois

July 07, 2021

Senate Minority Leader A. Mitchell McConnell

Q. Mr. President, Mitch McConnell says you're in for a heck of a fight on this one.

The President. Mitch McConnell loves our programs. Did you see what Mitch McConnel said? He told me he wasn't going to get a single vote in order to allow me to get, with the help of everybody here, that $1.9 trillion tax cut—I mean, excuse me, program to—for economic growth.

Look it up, man. He's bragging about in Kentucky: "It's a great thing for Kentucky. It's getting $4 billion to help poor." It's amazing. Check out Mitch McConnell. You can even see it on TV.

Anyway, thanks. Thank you.

Q. Mr. President, is Vladimir Putin ignoring your warning?

NOTE: The President spoke at 1:22 p.m. in the Children's Learning Center. A reporter referred to President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin of Russia.
