According to the Des Moines Register, United States Sen. Chuck Grassley said that President Donald J. Trump shouldn’t be viewed as a leader for the Republican Party.

“Right now, there’s very little opportunity for him to lead the Republican Party,” he reportedly told the Register.

In addition, Grassley said Congress should shift its focus to the incoming Joe Biden administration.

“I think that President Biden’s going to want the Senate to spend their time, at least near-term, getting his cabinet approved,” Grassley said. “But longer-term, get whatever is on his agenda. And I’m looking forward to what that agenda is. You heard me say today that I hope he’s got something on prescription drugs that he wants to accomplish, because I want to help him.”

The Register wrote that Grassley says he is ready to move ahead to Jan. 20 and work with the Biden administration.
