Former President Trump maintains his line of fire with a swagger toward anyone who dares to cross or disagrees with him.
This time, it’s Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) who is taking the heat as Trump railed against him during a telerally held for Nebraska gubernatorial candidate Charles Herbster (R).
Trump said he should never have given his endorsement to Senator Sasse in the 2020 Nebraska Senate race.
“He’s bad news, Ben Sasse. He begged for my endorsement, the day after he started hitting me and we hit much harder than he knows how to hit. He’s bad news,” Trump said.
“Should have never given him the endorsement. He was horrible at the beginning. And then he was so good … and then the following day, literally, he started hitting back,” he added.
In a tweet in 2019, Trump said that Sasse had “done a wonderful job representing the people of Nebraska.”
However, when Sasse became one of Trump’s critics and voted to convict him in the aftermath of Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot, it was no hold bar for the former president.
In a 2021 emailed statement, the Nebraska senator condemned Trump’s repeated, baseless claims of the election being stolen from him.
“Those lies had consequences, endangering the life of the vice president and bringing us dangerously close to a bloody constitutional crisis,” Sasse said. “Each of these actions are violations of a president’s oath of office.”
Sasse’s current term is set to expire in 2027.
