Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona says President Donald Trump can be certain to face an independent challenge from the next presidential election, if not a challenge coming from within the party. in addition to Flake can be not ruling out being of which challenger.
Flake has been fiercely critical of Trump, even while supporting parts of his agenda, like the brand-new tax cuts. Trump in turn has denounced the senator, who’s not seeking re-election next year.
Flake says if Trump continues on his path, in addition to if Democrats lean left, a “huge swath of voters” will be “looking for something else.”
Asked on ABC’s “of which Week” whether he might run for president in 2020, Flake said “of which’s not in my plans” however “I don’t rule anything out.”
He says Republicans must marginalize the party’s “ultra-nationalist” element.
