Nebraska Republican Senator, Ben Sasse made some scathing remarks about President Trump during a call to constituents. In the town hall call, the Senator openly criticized Trump’s handling of Coronavirus, his foreign policy decisions, and his “deficient” values. Senator Sasse predicts a Biden win in November saying, “we are staring down the barrel of a blue tsunami.”
The GOP Senator has been critical of Trump ever since he announced his plans to run for President. Sasse refused to vote for Trump in 2016, even comparing him to KKK leader David Duke. Over the past years, it seemed that Sasse has at least achieved a “working relationship” with the President, even gaining his much-needed endorsement for re-election but now it appears that has gone out the window.
In an article from the New York Times:
Mr. Sasse also hinted at more drastic consequences: a “Venezuela style” Supreme Court with dozens of justices installed by ascendant Democrats; an empowered China ruling the Pacific because of Mr. Trump’s “weak” policies; and American allies doubting whether they can “trust in U.S. strength and U.S. will.”
He argued that Mr. Trump had “careened from curb to curb” as he sought to respond to a pandemic that has claimed more than 217,000 American lives this year.
“He refused to treat it seriously,” Mr. Sasse said. “For months, he treated it like a news-cycle-by-news-cycle P.R. crisis.”
He continued: “The United States now regularly sells out our allies under his leadership, the way he treats women, spends like a drunken sailor.”
The Nebraskan Senator kept the insults coming even claiming the President “mock evangelicals behind closed doors.” Sasse predicted that all of Trump’s actions will have lasting negative effects on the Republican party. He alleged that young voters and women could be permanently lost to the Republican party because they’ve been “repulsed by the obsessive nature of our politics.”
