WASHINGTON – Senator Ben Sasse, R-Neb., Launched a violent assault on President Donald Trump and his leadership this week as he spoke to voters warning that there would be a “Republican carnage” in the Senate if Trump did White House loses.
During a town hall telephone call, a voter asked Sasse about his relationship with the president and why he criticizes him so much. This is evident from an audio clip first obtained from The Washington Examiner and posted on YouTube.
“I don’t apologize at all for fighting for my values against his in places where I think his is flawed not only for a Republican but also for an American,”
“The United States is now regularly selling off our allies under his leadership, treating women like a drunken sailor,” Sasse went on, adding that Trump “mocked evangelicals behind closed doors … made the presidency like a business opportunity.” treated “and flirted with white supremacists.”
Sasse said Trump “is pushing the country further to the left” and said that if he loses the White House in the upcoming election, it is “likely that he will take the Senate with him”.
“I am now examining the possibility of a Republican carnage in the Senate, so I have never been on the Trump train,” he said.
Sasse warned that if the Democrats take control of the Senate, “there is a very good chance” the US will look like Venezuela with dozens of Supreme Court members within a decade.
“The debate won’t be, ‘Ben Sasse, why were you so mean to Donald Trump?’” Sasse said. “It’s going to be, ‘What the hell did any of us think it was a good idea to sell a television-obsessed, narcissistic person to the American people?'”
