LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Has the relationship between Kentucky U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell and President Trump crumbled?

That's the claim in a New York Times article that was published Tuesday.

The Times reports that the President and the Senate majority leader have not spoken in weeks.

The story also says that Senator McConnell doubts Donald Trump can salvage his presidency.

The Times points out that this comes as Congress faces a number of urgent deadlines, including raising the debt ceiling and rewriting the federal tax code.

Senator McConnell has declined to comment on the article.
