The hotel where the fall occurred, sources said, was the Waldorf Astoria, formerly the Trump International Hotel.

McConnell, who’s 81, has walked with a limp after overcoming polio at a young age and suffered a fall in early August 2019, fracturing his shoulder.

He has served as Senate Republican leader since 2007 and became the longest-serving party leader in the history of the Senate earlier this year.
