Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse Slams Trump in Call With Constituents

US Sen. Ben Sasse reacts as Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee

Sasse's response initially talked about common ground he shared with Trump, but he soon started slamming him, saying Trump badmouths evangelicals when they're not around, has botched the COVID-19 response, treats women badly, "kisses dictators' butts", throws around money like "a drunken sailor", "sells out our allies", and has "flirted with white supremacists". With this, Sasse responded to the question of why he was ready to publicly reprimand a president from his own party. Other than that, he's just a wonderful guy!'

Olivia Troye, a former top adviser to Vice President Mike Pence, has said the President knew about the impact the coronavirus pandemic would have on the USA by mid-February, but that "he didn't want to hear it, because his biggest concern was that we were in an election year".

In scathing tweets posted on Saturday morning, Trump claimed that the Nebraska senator had gone back to his 'stupid and obnoxious ways, ' even after he had done so much to help the state.

President Donald Trump on Saturday took aim at Republican Sen. Although he mentioned in the course of the name with constituents that he tried to determine a working relationship with the president, he campaigned on behalf of different contenders in 2016 earlier than Trump grew to become the social gathering's official nominee and publicly criticized Trump in current months about his administration's handling of peaceful protesters in Washington, D.C., his use of govt orders, and his response to alleged bounties that The New York Occasions reported Russian Federation positioned on us troops in Afghanistan.

"We are staring down the barrel of a blue tsunami", he said.

Jim Carrey used his new cartoon to widen his targets beyond President Trump and top Republicans in the U.S. Senate. "It's going to be, 'What the heck were any of us thinking, that selling a TV-obsessed, narcissistic individual to the American people was a good idea?'" He went on to label the senator a rino, and call him obnoxious.

"Ben mentioned the identical factor to Nebraskans that he has repeatedly mentioned to the President immediately within the Oval Workplace", Wegmann mentioned.

Sasse has expressed concerns that Trump's declining poll numbers are further imperiling the Senate GOP majority.

'But the reality is that he careened from curb to curb.

He added that he did not think Trump's leadership through the crisis had been "reasonable or responsible, or right". "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", says Sasse. He also accused Trump of having 'treated the presidency like a business opportunity'.

While several high-profile Republicans initially opposed Trump's presidency in 2016 in what was then dubbed the "never-Trump" movement, some of those early critics, including House Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham, have become close allies of the president.
