President Trump has just as many enemies within the Republican Party as he does outside of it.
That’s part of the reason he got elected in the first place, to fight the Republican and Democratic establishments.
But one Never Trump Republican just betrayed Trump like never before.
President Trump is already getting ready to run for re-election.
But as his campaign heats up, one former Republican Senator is already working to undermine him.
And his name is Jeff Flake.
Breitbart reports, “Former Republican Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona told an audience in New York City on Thursday that he would prefer a Democrat win in 2020 than see Donald Trump re-elected to a second term.”
Flake was notorious for voting with Democrats on key issues during his time in office.
And after President Trump got elected in 2016, Flake decided to take a hard turn to the left.
After masquerading as a conservative Republican, Flake’s true colors shined through as he worked tirelessly to betray the President time and time again.
Flake even nearly derailed President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee last fall.
Flake’s approval rating within the state he represented, Arizona, subsequently collapsed and he chose not to run for re-election out of fear that he wouldn’t even win re-nomination.
But since leaving office, Flake has moved even further to the left.
And now, he’s openly rooting for a Democratic takeover of America.
“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 when asked about whether or not he wished for a Democrat to defeat the President in 2020.
“Flake began criticizing Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, and Trump responded in kind. The senator continued to oppose Trump as president, declaring proudly that he was a member of the Republican Party’s “Never Trump” faction,” adds Breitbart.
“A year ago, Flake called for a primary challenge to the president, though he declined to run himself. Flake also declined to run for re-election, after his liberal policy stances and his clash with Trump caused his popularity to plummet in Arizona.”
Jeff Flake is nothing short of a traitor to the Republican Party and to the conservative principles he once claimed to have supported.
It’s now clear that he was either lying when he told voters in his state that he was a conservative, or he’s simply decided to abandon his principles somewhere down the road.
His opinion on all of this is irrelevant, as he himself didn’t think he could win re-election in 2018.
But his words aren’t his alone.
Flake speaks for many within the GOP establishment who oppose President Trump, even to this day.
It’s clear that the President won’t get re-elected by relying on this RINO wing of the Republican Party for support, but rather the men and women who came out in droves to support him in 2016.
