Republican Senator Admits He Has No Idea What the GOP Stands For Anymore
#NeverTrumper Ben Sasse (R-NE) believes Washington is not only "lame" under Trump, but "incredibly ineffective."
“I think we should just start by admitting that the two political policies are intellectually exhausted,” Sasse suggested. “They don’t have future-oriented ideas right now.”
Although the junior senator has voted to confirm all but one of Trump's cabinet appointments, he remains dubious about the president's ability to lead the White House, much less the country. The former university president and father of three joined the Politico program to promote his new book, “The Vanishing American Adult,” an examination of the socioeconomic forces that helped propel Trump to victory.
Sasse was evasive as to whether the 70-year-old U.S. president meets his own standards of maturity. And when asked what the Republican Party now stands for, he confessed: “I don’t know.”
