Two Republican senators turn on Donald Trump on same day with stinging attacks on 'undignified' President

'I don’t know why he lowers himself to such a low, low standard and debases our country in the way that he does'

A pair of senators from Donald Trump‘s own Republican Party launched stinging attacks on their leader on the same day. One accused the President of “debasing our country”.

Arizona’s Jeff Flake, who has repeatedly and publicly clashed with the US President, took to the Senate floor to announce he would not seek re-election in 2018.

He said he had “children and grandchildren to answer to,” adding that he would not be “complicit” in going along with “reckless, outrageous and undignified behaviour”.

“We must never meekly accept the daily sundering of our country – the personal attacks, the threats against principles, freedoms, and institutions, the flagrant disregard for truth or decency, the reckless provocations, most often for the pettiest and most personal reasons,” Mr Flake said.

He reportedly received a standing ovation from fellow Arizonan Senator John McCain, Wyoming’s John Barrasso and Bob Corker, who had earlier made his own feelings about Mr Trump abundantly clear.

“He’s obviously not going to rise to the occasion as President,” said Mr Corker, the chairman of the Senate foreign relations committee. He added that “the debasement of our nation” would be what Mr Trump “will be remembered most for”.
