President Donald Trump has been facing a multi-front attack from Democratic politicians, the liberal-biased media and, sadly, establishment Republicans who are not comfortable with the fact that an outsider is President and not someone from their established political class.
President Trump needs all the help that he can get from his fellow Republicans to carry out his agenda to restore America’s slipping prosperity. Unfortunately, politicians in the Republican “Never Trump” camp have already been trying to undermine Trump by talking about giving him a primary challenge in the 2020 election.
One of the most prominent politicians among the “Never Trumpers’ is Republican Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska. Senator Sasse recently stated how he sides with liberals over President Trump when it comes to Trump hitting back at the press for their relentless attacks against him.
Said Sasse about liberals on State of the Union, “We differ about really big and important things in this country and then we come together around the First Amendment.” He added, claiming that Trump is “weaponizing distrust,” “There is an important distinction to draw between bad stories or crappy coverage and the right that citizens have to argue about that and complain — and trying to weaponize distrust.”
Sasse is about to travel to Iowa, which is the traditional first stop in any would-be candidate’s campaign, since Iowa holds the nation’s first caucus. Sasse pretended that his upcoming trip had nothing to do with laying the groundwork for a 2020 run, saying, “Well, first of all, let’s be clear why I’m going to be in Iowa this weekend. I don’t want to admit it anywhere, let alone on national TV, but Nebraska lost to Iowa last year in a football game and I lost a bet.” He added, “So I have to drive Uber in Iowa next weekend. So that’s the reason I’m going to be in Iowa. It’s about Hawkeyes and Huskers bloodletting on the football field and the aftermath of that.” Do you think Sen. Sasse is lying about his reason for going to Iowa?
