Kevin McCarthy Says GOP ‘Will Unify’ Despite Divisions Over Donald Trump

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy speaks at the weekly news conference on Capitol Hill.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Thursday that the Republican Party will find a way to unify in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s presidency.

Per The Washington Examiner, speaking to a group of reporters, McCarthy reassured conservatives that the efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election have not created a permanent rift in the Republican Party.

“At the end of the day, we will unify because our policies are right, which will unify us around,” McCarthy said, explaining that Republicans will hold a conference next week to resolve their differences and discuss the direction of the party going forward.

McCarthy said that Republicans “allow differences of opinion inside our conference” and noted that many expected the GOP to lose seats in the House this election, but the opposite happened.

“This is the same leadership team with the ranking members and others who came five seats away from winning the majority, and everybody in America thought we were going to lose 20 seats.”
