Trump slams Republican critic who warned of November 'bloodbath'

Trump slams Republican critic who warned of November 'bloodbath'”

Trump called Sasse a "RINO" - Republican in Name Only - and suggested he was getting ready to quit - or else should be replaced by the party in his state.

The public back and forth between Sasse, an occasional critic of the president, and Trump comes as Republicans are working overtime to try to keep control of the Senate and as the White House is counting on GOP votes to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court and approve an economic stimulus, should a proposal materialize.

"Little Ben is a liability to the Republican Party, and an embarrassment to the Great State of Nebraska", Trump wrote.

Cornyn pointed to former Senator Bob Corker (R., Tenn.) who decided not to run for re-election in 2018 after public disagreements with the president over issues such as a border wall between the USA and Mexico led him to become a frequent subject of Trump's tweets.

President Trump lashed out at Sen.

He said that he has avoided public confrontations with the president when they have differing views.

Meanwhile Mr Trump launched a new attack on Anthony Fauci, his top infectious diseases expert, during a campaign call on Monday which journalists were allowed to listen in on. He praised Trump's judicial appointments.

Cruz's and Cornyn's comments are not just one offs, but rather are part of growing concern among Republicans that Trump could take down many others with him.

Ben Sasse, R-Neb., on Saturday, calling him "stupid and obnoxious" after he lambasted the president for his coronavirus response and accused him of being friendly with dictators and white supremacists.

'But when I have had differences of opinion, which I have, I do that privately, ' Cornyn said.

"It isn't just that he fails to lead our allies, it's that the United States now regularly sells out our allies under his leadership".

"He mocks evangelicals behind closed doors", Sasse said, referring to Trump.

He also said Trump never treated the COVID-19 crisis seriously, but only as an issue of the news cycle.

Sasse said he criticizes Trump for how he treats women and because Trump "spends like a drunken sailor", saying he criticized Democratic President Barack Obama over spending.

Congressman Eric Swalwell was among the Democrats quick to point out on social media that Sasse's voting record is largely in line with Trump's priorities.

Sasse also voted to acquit in Trump's impeachment trial early this year.

Sasse is up for reelection on November 3 but is expected to keep his seat amid a landscape that threatens the GOP Senate majority.
