Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.): “I Didn’t Vote For This President Last November”

On Wednesday, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said he did not vote for President Trump in the 2016 presidential election.  This comes just a day after he tore into President Trump on the senate floor as he announced that he would not be going for reelection.

“I didn’t vote for this president last November,” Flake told NBC’s Matt Lauer on “Today,” and he said he did not vote for Hillary Clinton either.  He further said, “I am a Republican. I am a conservative. I would love to have a Republican president, but not at any cost.”

“I can tell you no president, Democrat or Republican, in recent memory has exhibited the kind of behavior that this president has,” said the Flake, I mean Sen. Flake.

The Arizona senator said of Trump’s behavior as “reckless, outrageous and undignified behavior has been excused.” Flake and Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn) have both joined in on attacks on Trump.

“I think at the end of the day, when his term is over, I think the debasing of our nation, the constant non-truth-telling, the name calling … the debasement of our nation will be what he will be remembered most for, and that’s regretful,” Corker said to CNN’s Manu Raju.

President Trump hit Twitter on Wednesday to show them they would not have had a chance at reelection anyhow, saying they had “zero chance” of being reelected in 2018.

Also tweeting what Flakes approval rate in Arizona is, sitting at 18%, no doubt he would not be reelected.
