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

Sasse's response initially talked about common ground he shared with Trump, but he soon started slamming him, saying Trump badmouths evangelicals when they're not around, has botched the COVID-19 response, treats women badly, "kisses dictators' butts", throws around money like "a drunken sailor", "sells out our allies", and has "flirted with white supremacists".

"It has always been imprudent for our party to tie itself to a Trumpian brand, and that's what I've been anxious about for five years", says Sasse.

Sasse said he's found common ground with Trump on certain things, such as nominating conservative judges to the courts, but then he laid out a long list of faults and said it was important to "level" with Nebraskans.

Sasse, who is up for reelection on Nov. 3, went public with his concerns at a time when Republicans are increasingly anxious that Trump is careening toward a devastating loss in November's elections that could also cost them the Senate, handing Democrats, who already hold the House, unified control.

Sasse, who is up for reelection in November, publicly criticized the president on several occasions in the early years of his presidency. "I mean, the way he ignores that the Uighurs are in literal concentration camps in Xinjiang right now". Little Ben is a liability to the Republican Party, and an embarrassment to the Great State of Nebraska.

"The way he kisses dictators' butts", Sasse said, listing his reservations about Trump.

Trump "mocks evangelicals behind closed doors", mistreats women and "flirted with white supremacists", Sasse said.

"He hasn't lifted a finger on behalf of the Hong Kongers", he said.

He wouldn't say last week in an interview with 3 News Now whether he'd vote for Trump, with Sasse saying he's focused on the Senate. In an audio clip heard by the Washington Examiner, Sasse didn't hold back when asked by one caller why he criticizes the president "so much".

Hostin said, "I have to agree with you".

"His family has treated the presidency like a business opportunity", Sasse said.

"It's also a.political question about whether or not he's ultimately driving the country further to the left because that's what I think is ultimately going to happen because of Donald Trump", Sasse explained.

Young people, he said, could "become permanent Democrats because they've just been repulsed by the obsessive nature of our politics".
