Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell talks about his childhood battle with polio, the longshot bid that got him elected to the Senate in 1984, and his difficult re-election in 2014. He discusses what the institution of the Senate means to him, his frustration with the 2013 government shutdown, and the need to put an end to Republicans attacking Republicans. Senator McConnell discussed his endorsement of Donald Trump and the serious concerns he has about the presumptive GOP nominee. He also reveals what advice he gave Trump in a recent meeting.
