One Republican Senator reportedly took aim at Pres. Donald Trump and ripped him during a call this week.
As he claimed the president has bungled this covid-19 pandemic.
Plus he added Trump “kisses dictators’ butts,” and “sells out our allies,” spends “like a drunken sailor,” mistreats women, and trash-talks evangelicals behind their backs.
The upper chamber cornhusker cautioned Trump could cause permanent damage to the Republican Party.
To start with, Sasse put down the press. Though soon after he turned on Trump and criticized his pandemic response. In addition he went on to slam the White House regarding world affairs.
“The way he kisses dictators’ butts. I mean, the way he ignores that the Uighurs are in literal concentration camps in Xinjiang. Right now, he hasn’t lifted a finger on behalf of the Hong-Kongers.”
Then charged, “The United States now regularly sells out our allies under his leadership, the way he treats women, spends like a drunken sailor. The ways I criticize President Obama for that kind of spending; I’ve criticized President Trump for as well.”
”He mocks evangelicals behind closed doors. His family has treated the presidency like a business opportunity. He’s flirted with white supremacists.”
Clearly he won’t be hitching his wagon to Trump
Sasse faces a challenge for his Senate seat November 3rd but he’s widely expected to win. With a seemingly bright political future ahead as well.
“If young people become permanent Democrats because they’ve just been repulsed by the obsessive nature of our politics, or if women who were willing to still vote with the Republican Party in 2016 decide that they need to turn away from this party permanently in the future.”
Along with, “I’ve spent lots of the of the last year on a campaign bus, and when you listen to Nebraskans, they don’t really want more rage tweeting as a new form of entertainment.”
And Sasse stated, “I think the overwhelming reason that President Trump won in 2016 was simply because Hillary Clinton was literally the most unpopular candidate in the history of polling.”
So much for the idea of Trump’s popularity within the party.
