Arizona Senator Jeff Flake announced his retirement on Tuesday and gave a speech on the Senate floor denouncing the direction of the GOP under President Trump.
The Republican Senator’s speech didn’t pull any punches, and in one remark stated, “It is time for our complicity and our accommodation of the unacceptable to end.”
Yet Flake isn’t the only Republican speaking out against the president. Sen. Bob Corker (Tenn.), who is also retiring, said on the record that Trump is “debasing our nation.” Trump dismissed Flake and Corker’s criticisms, tweeting that the reason the two are retiring is because they have “zero chance of being elected.”
