Top U.S. Senate Republican Mitch McConnell is facing mounting attacks from hardliners within his party due to Donald Trump's rising influence. McConnell's negotiations with Democrats to secure more Ukraine aid have drawn criticism from some lawmakers aligned with Trump. McConnell's willingness to work across the aisle has become a liability among his Trump-aligned colleagues. Some hardline Republicans have openly called for McConnell to be replaced, but he still enjoys support from a supermajority of his conference. Despite their differences, McConnell and Trump may find common ground on many issues.
