This Never-Trumper just betrayed Trump with his worst attack yet
Former Senator Jeff Flake learned the hard way that opposing President Trump is a losing position in the Republican Party.
He is now completely sidelined, with virtually no chance of ever serving in public office again.
But even out of office he is continuing his anti-Trump crusade and he just betrayed the President with his worst attack yet.
Jeff Flake is the perfect example of how to destroy a political career in the era of President Trump.
After coming out as the most vocal Never-Trump voice in the Senate, he became so unpopular in his state of Arizona he was forced to drop out of the race for reelection.
And now, in his first few months out of office, he is fully embracing his Never-Trump identity.
Speaking to a left-wing crowd in New York City, Flake declared he wants a Democrat to beat Trump in 2020, claiming that four years is too much, considering how much “damage” he has done internationally.
As reported by CNN:
Former Republican Sen. Jeff Flake would prefer a Democrat win the 2020 election than have President Donald Trump serve a second term, saying that “four years is difficult enough to unravel some of the damage” done internationally by the administration.
Flake, a longtime Trump critic who argued Thursday that the Republican Party should not support Trump in 2020, was asked if it is better for a Democrat to win the election if Trump is the Republican nominee.
“Yes … and this notion, this narrative that’s been built up, that Donald Trump is the only one that can cobble together the Electoral College and win is just a fallacy,” Flake replied at an Intelligence Squared debate in New York City.
Even for a loser like Jeff Flake, he is going further than many were expecting him to go.
Throwing his support behind the Democrats in 2020 is essentially the same as him leaving the Republican Party all together.
