Sen. Flake takes GOP to task over Trump

Is it that somehow they've lost their way because they elected Donald Trump? Tim Scott (R-S.C.) said. He recalls working on his family's Arizona ranch alongside immigrants: "In ranch country, you learn how indispensible they are to making things work in America".

Trump's success pulled Republicans in the opposite direction, he argues. His approval ratings are in the gutter, and the White House is recruiting primary challengers to take him out. It was my Mother's copy that she received while she was active in the Young Republicans and the Goldwater for President movement in the early 1960s and I still have it.

The message to the White House: Trump may still reject the consensus judgment of the intelligence community about who interfered in the 2016 campaign, but Congress, speaking with one voice, demands that Russian Federation be firmly rebuked.

For those congressional Republicans, the fear of confronting a conservative main challenge is imminent, most likely orchestrated by aggressive followers of the President. Flake was only slightly more favorable than Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona is taking aim at the president and his own party in a new book, writing that "Unnerving silence in the face of an erratic executive branch is an abdication" and marveling at "the odd specter of an American president's seeming affection for strongmen and authoritarians".

"In our poll taken immediately following President Trump's inauguration, 31 percent of independent voters disapproved of him", said Morning Consult Co-founder and Chief Research Officer Kyle Dropp.

Of course, one of those attacks came from President Trump himself, who repeatedly questioned Obama's citizenship during the former president's tenure.

Planes built for bankrupt Russian airlines could be new Air Force Ones
News of the negotiations was reported earlier by the trade publication Defense One; it was confirmed Tuesday by the Air Force. Boeing made it very clear that the planes have never been delivered and has always been under its ownership.

Which means that somebody like U.S. Sen. The comments were echoed by other Republican senators. More important, a close reading of Flake's analysis suggests a surprising awareness that the short-fingered vulgarian at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. isn't so much an out-of-left-field aberration but the culmination of a long period of moral and intellectual rot among conservative Republicans. But if things don't soon begin to turn around in Washington, the number of Republicans who decide they won't go down with a ship captained by the man from Mar-a-Lago could begin to rise. "This populism, in some cases xenophobia, anti-immigration, protectionism - that's not familiar to us, and I don't think it's a governing philosophy". "He ought to do that job and let us do our jobs".

Flake: Well, I think to the extent that he goes back to traditional conservatism - and I think on trade there are signs that he is - if he doesn't, if he continues down this populist route, then I think this will be like other populist movements in the past, forgotten.

Trump has been ignoring past warnings from Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to stay out of the Senate's business, tweeting relentless commands in the wake of Friday's failure on health care that the Senate should eliminate the filibuster rule that requires 60 votes to move forward on much major legislation. "For those of us wandering in the arid desert of Eisenhower Republicanism, it hit like a rifle shot". Something has to account for the state's profusion of free-spirited politicians like John McCain, Barry Goldwater, Morris K. Udall and Bruce Babbitt. My vote against the bill is a vote that I still regret. We're a significant way from there, but it isn't hard to imagine a moment where even more very bad (or unlawful) behavior on President Trump's part is revealed, and Republicans hold his future in their hands.

Flake refused to endorse Trump during the 2016 election campaign and has been an outspoken critic of the president, though he voted in favor of the Trump-supported "skinny repeal" attempt to overturn Obamacare.

The House has been a friendlier place for Trump.
