Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell cancelled the upper chamber’s annual August recess Tuesday, citing “historic obstruction” his Democratic colleagues in a statement explaining his decision.
“Due to the historic obstruction by Senate Democrats of the president’s nominees, and the goal of passing appropriations bills prior to the end of the fiscal year, the August recess has been canceled,” McConnell said in the statement. “Senators should expect to remain in session in August to pass legislation, including appropriations bills, and to make additional progress on the president’s nominees.”

McConnell has been stalling Trump from the beginning. What happened to change his mind now? Did his dog get run over by an illegal immigrant who should have been deported?

I think it has more to do with McConnell and some other Republicans panicking over the Tariffs. They have been calling out to Democrats to help pass something to stop Trumps Tariffs because their states have been targeted with counter-tariffs but they aren't having any of it.
