Arizona’s Jeff Flake is leading the establishment campaign to sabotage Donald Trump’s administration.
Flake’s fight with Trump is defined by one issue – immigration.
And Flake just made everything worse with one interview.
Flake appeared on ABC’s “This Week” and complained about the President attacking Democrats over their support for completely open borders and amnesty.
Flake said, “Congress has to fix this. And what’s bothersome is the president’s rhetoric about the Democrats and their unwillingness to have any type of border security or control.”
He continued, “I was part of the effort in 2013, the bipartisan bill, the so-called Gang of Eight bill that provided $41 billion towards border security, infrastructure, manpower, technology. Every Democrat voted for that bill. So, they are on record supporting significant border control. And so, when the president says that and calls them ‘clowns’ and ‘losers,’ how does he expect the Democrats to sit down and work with Republicans on these issues?”
He added, “Words matter, what the president says matters, and he ought to knock that off.”
Flake is lying.
The Gang of Eight amnesty bill died in the House of Representatives because it didn’t provide anything more than a fig leaf of border security.
And Democrats are attacking Trump over his policy of detaining families at the border.
They contend the Trump administration should release any family caught at the border into the country in a massive expansion of the “catch and release” policy that was in place during the Obama administration.
That the Arizona Republican joined the Democrats in supporting amnesty is why he was forced to retire from Congress due his 18% approval rating making him dead man walking in a GOP primary.
Instead of recognizing that his party’s voters are against amnesty for illegal aliens and fighting on their behalf, Flake has made it his missions to stab his voters and his party’s President in the back.
