President Donald Trump on Saturday blasted Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse in a series of tweets, likely in response to leaked audio from this past week where Sasse criticized Trump during a constituent town hall.
Trump swiftly responded to Sasse’s attacks, questioning the first-term senator’s conservative credentials.
“The least effective of our 53 Republican Senators, and a person who truly doesn’t have what it takes to be great, is Little Ben Sasse of Nebraska, a State which I have gladly done so much to help,” he tweeted.
Trump then proceeded to call Sasse a “RINO,” or Republican in name only, a pejorative generally reserved for members of the party who aren’t considered to be true conservatives or who vote too often with Democrats.
“Sen. Sasse was as nice as a RINO can be until he recently won the Republican nomination to run for a second term,” Trump continued. “Then he went back to his rather stupid and obnoxious ways…Little Ben is a liability to the Republican Party, and an embarrassment to the Great State of Nebraska. Other than that, he’s just a wonderful guy!”
