House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has denied ever believing President Donald Trump should resign following the January 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol – despite an audio recording in which he says otherwise .
Addressing the controversy for the first time on Friday night, McCarthy told reporters he never approached Trump with the suggestion that he should step down.
“No, I never asked the president to resign. I never thought he should quit,” McCarthy said.
In the audio recording released by The New York Times, McCarthy can be heard telling Republican leaders clearly that he would call Trump and urge him to step down.
