FOX Business Network's Neil Cavuto interviews Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell about tax cuts, Russia, special counsel Robert Mueller, midterm elections, and his relationship with President Trump. McConnell said he has "enjoyed" the period where he has not had any disputes with the president or been the target of his ire.
McConnell did have some praise for Trump, calling him an "asset" for Republican candidates for Senate in some states.

CAVUTO: So, when you put you up on a bullseye and say, you are the reason this stuff isn't getting done, and even months back, when the president was zinging you, did that hurt?
MCCONNELL: Well, I just remind everybody of Neil Gorsuch and the fact that we confirmed 12 circuit judges last year, U.S. circuit judges. That's a record for the first year of any president since the circuit court systems were created in 1891.
