#NeverTrumper Senator Jeff Flake won’t rule out 2020 run against Trump

Go for it you RINO. And keep trashing us republican voters. Sounds like a winning strategy to get Trump re-elected!

From NY Post: WASHINGTON – Retiring Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake​ on Sunday wouldn’t​ rule out a 2020 run against President Trump, saying the commander-in-chief is “inviting” a challenger with his politics of division and narrow appeal to a diminishing base of older, white men.

“I don’t rule anything out, but it’s not in my plans,” Flake​, a Republican,​ told ABC’s “This Week.”

“But I do believe if the president is running for reelection, if he continues on the path that he’s on, that that’s going to leave a huge swath of voters looking for something else.”

Flake said he expects Trump could have challengers from multiple sides: Democrat, independent and even from his own Republican Party. “I think he’s inviting that,” Flake said.

Flake has often clashed with Trump over his incendiary tweets, immigration policies and endorsements.

He most recently wrote a campaign contribution check to Alabama Democrat Doug Jones after Trump backed accused child molester Roy Moore for ​the ​Senate.

Flake said he worries the GOP und​er ​Trump represents “spasms of a dying party.”

“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,” Flake said.

Facing a tough reelection in Arizona and public rebukes from Trump, Flake announced his retirement in a stunning Senate floor speech Oct. 24 that was viewed as a condemnation of Trump’s leadership. “I will not be complicit,” he said.

If Democrats nominate someone like far-left Sens. Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders in 2020 to challenge Trump, Americans likely will be looking for third option, Flake said. “That leaves a huge swath of voters in the middle, that may be looking for something else,” he said.

  1. The aptly named Flake has delusions of grandiosity. And if he does enter the GOP primaries against Trump, he should be prepared for dirt being exposed. There are online whispers of Jeff Flake and pedo.

    Except when they represent righteous indignation against those who are actively trying to degrade our country – society (& world – civilization) and its moral foundations.

    The only thing needed for evil to succeed is for good people to do nothing to stand against it.

    Trump could, but he also DID face challengers from all sides a year ago, Jeffy.

    But go ahead, knock yourself out.

  5. I actually don’t think it matters at this point who they run against Trump in 2020. What he is accomplishing for the people who elected him in the first place is nothing short of amazing. The only real thing of consequence that is missing is the border wall. But he has spent real money on more border guards and some enhanced walls. I am watching closely on what he does on our 2nd amendment rights, but I am not super worried.

    The people on the left are forgetting that they lost an election against Trump that in the end was not all that close except in a few states. And Trump is much smarter than they give him credit for. Depending on who runs against him next time, he will not allow it to be that close. He is not always the smartest person in the room, but the smartest person in the room is always working for him.

  6. Could you find a more “perfect” replacement for McCain? What a loser. They ought to play “The Internationale” when he takes the stage.

  7. FLAKE THE FAKE
    It’s hard to imagine my ever voting for Flake so I won’t bother trying.

    Will he be running on a genderbender platform?
    I heard his website is entitled “The Make Believe Ballroom”

  8. What a gift he would be to all of us. Putting Flake up against Trump would be like a boxing match between Peewee Herman and George Foreman.

  9. He needs to take that poster at the beginning and remove the word “with”. THAT would be his Campaign Slogan.

  10. He is just another member of the “Never Trump” crowd. They just cannot stand the fact that conservative America took the bull by its horns, and elected someone they thought would actually address some of the problems that face our nation. This must be a mental torment for all these folks. The majority of us had sat by year after year and noted the fact that NOTHING was being done by our duly elected officials in Washington, DC. During the two terms of Obummer, we saw our country slipping away from us. Many of us knew that if we did not act, and act NOW, we would pass the point of no return. Trump has done many, many of the things he said he would do, and many things that we see him do currently, we see are in the very best interest of our country. This Flake is just another bonehead that any sane person could not possibly hold in high esteem!

  12. I am not sure what meds he is on, but he needs to reevaluate them. He still calls himself a Republican, heck we didn’t like him as a Senator, does he think that will suddenly change?

  13. FLAKE THE FLUKE
    Top 3 reasons for retiring
    Knows he won’t win re-election
    Knows they are getting ready to lower the boom on him for something (sex scandal, dirty deals)
    He’s packed his golden parachute; his financial future is secure.

  14. Joe Biden running in 2020 would be an even bigger gift for the republicans than Hillary Clinton was in 2016. From his record of misspeaking to his creepy habit of making young girls and women feel sexually assaulted when he stands next to them and gropes them or tries to kiss them. Not to mention his totally liberal agenda, including abortion, which contrary to any polls you might see, Americans are not supporting it in ever increasing numbers.

    One thing you must remember when you start to see people talk about poll numbers and such, is that what matters is how they ask the questions, and who they ask them of. A skilled pollster can design a poll to come up with support for anything you want. Just look at the polls showing how Hillary Clinton supposedly had the election wrapped up. I myself predicted at least 3 months before the election that Trump was going to win. Based upon not numbers, but on common sense and keeping my eyes and ears open. When the many websites I was visiting all had people saying that they had enough of politics as usual, and even Democrats could not stand Hillary, and Trump’s rally’s were SRO, and Hillary could not even fill a high school auditorium, it was pretty obvious to even the most casual observer that she was in trouble. I myself was not in love with Trump. I find him to be boorish, and somewhat of a jackass, but I live in Michigan, and I knew that my vote would be important in this swing state, so instead of trying to make some kind of political statement with my vote, I voted for him. And I was right, it was close in Michigan, and our state was important in his win. I can’t imagine the Democrats can find a candidate who can beat him in the next election. And I think they know it, which is why they are trying to hurt him now, and get him out. But Mike Pence is probable just as difficult to beat as Trump. Not nearly as much of a media presence, but just as good for the country.
