McConnell added that all the DNC speeches will say is that the major issues facing the country are Republicans' fault.

"They’re going to say, ‘It’s not our fault,’ and we need to tell them we’ve given them four years; we’re not giving them another four," McConnell continued.

McConnell's comments are similar to those of other top Democrats and Republicans who have said they weren't watching the opposing party's national convention.
