Trump slams Republican critic who warned of November 'bloodbath'

US Sen. Ben Sasse reacts as Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee

Sen. Ben Sasse had a conference call with 17,000 constituents this week, and probably not unexpectedly, the subject of President Trump came up.

Donald Trump has again given one of his perceived political adversaries a derogatory nickname, labeling Senator Ben Sasse, who went viral for criticizing the president, "Little Ben".

"I'm now looking at the possibility of a Republican blood bath in the Senate, and that's why I've never been on the Trump train", Sasse reportedly said during the call.

Trump weighed back into a fight with Sasse on Saturday morning in a series of tweets, describing him as the "least effective" of the Republican caucus and a person who "truly doesn't have what it takes to be great". He praised Trump's judicial appointments.

President Trump took to Twitter to slam Sen.

Sasse did not exactly try to keep his criticism quiet.

During the conference call, Sasse predicted Trump would likely lose to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on November 3. During the 2016 presidential campaign, he publicly announced that he was not voting for or supporting Trump.

Specifically, Carrey questions why Kelly is criticizing Trump in private conversations with friends and through surrogates rather than make a public statement.

Sen. Sasse Slams Trump In Constituent Call: He's 'Flirted With White Supremacists'

But he had toned down his criticism in recent years, earning a crucial endorsement from the president he once savaged.

"Sen Sasse could be next, or perhaps the Republicans should find a new and more viable candidate?" he asked. However, his compliments stopped there. Sasse spokesperson James Wegmann said the call occurred Wednesday.

He argued that Trump had "careened from curb to curb" as he sought to respond to a pandemic that has claimed more than 217,000 American lives this year. "For months, he treated it like a news-cycle-by-news-cycle PR crisis". I mean, the way he ignores that the Uyghurs are in literal concentration camps in Xinjiang right now.

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

'The United States now regularly sells out our allies under his leadership, the way he treats women, spends like a drunken sailor.

Trump "mocks evangelicals behind closed doors", he added. Although he mentioned in the course of the name with constituents that he tried to determine a working relationship with the president, he campaigned on behalf of different contenders in 2016 earlier than Trump grew to become the social gathering's official nominee and publicly criticized Trump in current months about his administration's handling of peaceful protesters in Washington, D.C., his use of govt orders, and his response to alleged bounties that The New York Occasions reported Russian Federation positioned on us troops in Afghanistan. "He's flirted with White supremacists", the Nebraska senator added.

Each of these things, Sasse predicted, would have consequences, for Republicans and the nation.
