This Never Trump Senator made a threat that he will soon regret
Establishment Republicans have been trying to torpedo Trump’s presidency.
They can’t stand the fact that an outsider is draining the swamp and doing the job they failed to deliver on by lowering taxes and regulations.
Now one Never-Trump Senator just made a threat that showed his true colors.
Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) can’t stand President Trump.
He refused to endorse Trump even after he won the presidential nomination in 2016.
Now Sasse tweeted that he “regularly considers” leaving the Republican Party just because Trump is president.
The Daily Caller reports:
Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse, a frequent Trump critic and a part of the #NeverTrump movement during the 2016 presidential election, admitted via Twitter on Saturday that he “regularly” considers leaving the GOP.
A Twitter user said she switched her vote from “Democrat” to “no-party” to be “part of the solution” and asked if Sasse had “considered following suit.” Sasse wrote, “Yep – regularly consider it (except the ‘from Dem’ part).”
Early in 2016, Sasse became the first GOP senator to announce his refusal to support Trump should he win the Republican nomination.
“My current answer for who I would support in a hypothetical matchup between Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton is: Neither of them,” he wrote in 2016. “I sincerely hope we select one of the other GOP candidates, but if Donald Trump ends up as the GOP nominee, conservatives will need to find a third option.”
Once President Trump was inaugurated and entered the White House, the country witnessed a flood of leftists experience a complete meltdown.
However, progressives and unhinged leftists are not the only ones who are having meltdowns.
These Never Trump Republicans have continued to throw a hissy fit and are retiring left and right because they have become so unpopular and don’t want to face the voters again.
Senators Bob Corker (R-TN) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) have both announced surprise early retirements.
Once Trump threatened to support primary opponents to these Never-Trumpers, they knew the writing was on the wall.
According to a recent Morning Consult Poll, Sasse has an approval rating of just 42% – in the bottom quarter of the entire U.S. Senate.
If he leaves the Republican Party it would be a career-ender.
