Donald Trump Mocks ‘Little Ben Sasse’ as ‘Stupid‘ and ‘Obnoxious’

Sasse says Trump kowtows to dictators, "spends like a drunken sailor"

"And then he went into full economic shutdown mode", Sasse said.

James Wegmann, a Sasse spokesman, released a statement in response to Trump's tweets, saying that the senator has expressed the same concerns in the call as he has done privately with the president."Ben is focused on defending the Republican Senate majority, and he's not going to waste a single minute on tweets", he said.

President Donald Trump speaks during an event on "Protecting America's Seniors", Friday, Oct. 16, 2020, in Fort Myers, Fla.

Sasse is now running for a second term as Senator from Nebraska, which is considered a Republican stronghold.

Two other Nebraska Republicans, U.S. Rep. Dan Bacon and state Republican Party executive director Ryan Hamilton, told the Omaha World-Herald that they disagree with Sasse's characterizations of the president. Sessions lost his primary. In audio first obtained from the call by the Washington Examiner, Sasse said that Trump's behavior had so badly offended voters that he might be the root of a "Republican blood bath" in the Senate.

That necessitated other schedule changes because the Broncos originally had been scheduled to play the Miami Dolphins this Sunday. The Panthers placed guard/center Tyler Larsen on the reserve/COVID-19 list five days after he played against Atlanta.

Sasse began his list with, "The way he kisses dictators' butts", and said Trump "hasn't lifted a finger" on behalf of pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. "He's flirted with white supremacists", he also said. He was the most ineffective senator among the 53 Republicans in the House of Representatives and "a person who certainly does not have what it takes to be great", the president wrote.

But he said he's had disagreements with Trump that do not involve "mere policy issues", adding, "I'm not at all apologetic for having fought for my values against his in places where I think his are deficient, not just for a Republican but for an American".

While several high-profile Republicans initially opposed Trump's presidency in 2016 in what was then dubbed the "never-Trump" movement, some of those early critics, including House Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham, have become close allies of the president.

Olivia Troye, a former top adviser to Vice President Mike Pence, has said the President knew about the impact the coronavirus pandemic would have on the United States by mid-February, but that "he didn't want to hear it, because his biggest concern was that we were in an election year".

'Redress or protest, ' he told her when she asked for help remembering. The New York Times reported that Sasse is among other Republicans who are concerned that Trump could lose reelection and take the party down with him. John Cornyn (R-Texas) have put distance between themselves and the president in public comments.
