Nebraska's one Conservative member of Congress, Senator Ben Sasse, just appeared on Gretchen Carlson's show on FOX News. The entire interview can be seen in the video below.
This is part of what Ben had to say:
"The Republican party is an absolute mess and has been for some time. So, let's give Trump credit for this, the guy knows how to wage a hostile takeover. We could have never gotten to this moment if the Republican party weren't also vacuous. If it were clear what the Republican party's principles were over the last many years, none of this would be happening now.
So, Donald Trump has been waging a war on the platform of
the Republican party plank by plank by plank of the things that Conservatives and people who believe in limited government care about. But, that's not Donald Trump's origin. He didn't start this, he was able to seize a party that was already vacuous. So, the Republican party's a mess. We need to reform it. We need to recover the party of Abraham Lincoln."
Watch to hear more of what Ben said:
Right on, Senator Sasse.
