It’s no secret: President Trump and Arizona Senator Jeff Flake do not get along. Jeff Flake has not been shy about calling out Donald Trump, and Trump has not been shy to fire right back.
Senator Flake has recently been receiving attention for his new book, “Conscience of a Conservative,” which calls conservatives to stand up to Donald Trump.
Flake also recently joined the plethora of Republican lawmakers who are coming down on Trump for not forcefully condemning the white nationalists, white supremacists, and Neo-Nazis in the Charlottesville tragedy this past weekend.
Flake even took to Twitter, expressing his thoughts about Trump’s approach to the events at the “United The Right” rally in Charlottesville…
Trump has been openly promoting Kelli Ward in the Arizona Senate, Jeff Flake’s opponent. The problem standing in her way, and Trump’s way, is John McCain.
After being diagnosed with cancer, Ward attempted to take McCain’s seat in the Senate. McCain has not stepped down, although. He plans to work as long as his condition allows him to.
Challenging Flake is Ward’s next attempt to join the Senate.
If she does happen to make her way into the Senate, it would be exactly what Trump wants. She would represent an ally that he does not currently have with either Arizona senator.
Early Thursday morning, President Trump also took to Twitter to praise Flake’s opponent, Kelli Ward.
