Outgoing Sen. Jeff Flake Continues to Criticize President Trump

Retiring Sen. Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) had made it clear that he is not a fan of President Donald Trump, ranging from his book that criticized the president and his campaign to a series of statements over the past year.

For example, CNN highlighted [1] nine criticisms of Trump Flake made in October.

Now, he went on television to discuss the atmosphere at pro-Trump rallies, which he criticized [2] as being full of “anger and resentment”:

“When you look at the lack of diversity, sometimes, and it depends on where you are, obviously, but by and large, we’re appealing to older white men and there are just a limited number of them, and anger and resentment are not a governing philosophy.”
