Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse Slams Trump in Call With Constituents

On Saturday, he attacked Nebraska's Republican Senator Ben Sasse via Twitter, who had been unusually harsh with the president's style and politics when he spoke to citizens.

Trump is presumably responding, in this case, to explosive headlines following Ben Sasse's phone call with constituents.

Sen. Ben Sasse had a conference call with 17,000 constituents this week, and probably not unexpectedly, the subject of President Trump came up.

"It's going to be what the heck we're any of us thinking about selling a tv obsessed, narcissistic individual to the American people was a good idea".

"I think we are staring down the barrel of a blue tsunami and we've got to hold the Senate and that's what I'm focused on".

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

"Sen. Sasse was as nice as a RINO can be until he recently won the Republican nomination to run for a second term", Trump continued.

President Trump tore into Sen.

Sasse did not exactly try to keep his criticism quiet.

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.

"Like a lot of Nebraskans, I am trying to understand your relationship with the president", the woman said. In office, he called Trump's signature trade war with China "nuts".

"No, no, no", Trump said, explaining one of his tweets that gave oxygen to the group. And, he added, he understood that some Nebraska voters were "frustrated" with his criticisms of the president.

Throughout the name, Sasse critiqued Trump's overseas coverage choices, in addition to his dealing with of the coronavirus pandemic, and recommended that Trump's management put the way forward for the Republican Social gathering in jeopardy. "At the beginning of the COVID crisis, he refused to treat it seriously".

The "deficiencies" added up from there. When asked why he is so critical of Trump, Sasse went on a thorough tirade, calling Trump out for misogyny, saying the president "kisses butts" of dictators, and addressing Trump's repeated encouragement of white supremacists. "I mean, the way he ignores that the Uighurs are in literal concentration camps in Xinjiang right now".

Sasse also said that Trump mistreats women and "spends like a drunken sailor".

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.

Kelly's sentiments about the President's transactional nature and dishonesty have been shared by other former members of the Trump administration who also appear in the special.
