President Donald Trump on Monday accused Sen. Ben Sasse of being a “RINO” who had “gone rogue” by scolding the White House for a recent collection of executive actions meant to provide assistance to Americans amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump’s admonishment of Sasse comes after the Nebraska Republican issued a scathing statement in response to the president’s announcement of four relief measures after a breakdown in talks between White House negotiators and congressional Democrats — who failed last week to strike a deal on a new round of federal coronavirus aid.
“The pen-and-phone theory of executive lawmaking is unconstitutional slop,” Sasse said Saturday night. “President Obama did not have the power to unilaterally rewrite immigration law with DACA, and President Trump does not have the power to unilaterally rewrite the payroll tax law.”
RINO Ben Sasse, who needed my support and endorsement in order to get the Republican nomination for Senate from the GREAT State of Nebraska, has, now that he’s got it (Thank you President T), gone rogue, again. This foolishness plays right into the hands of the Radical Left Dems!

The fact that you are afraid of hearing facts and advice from your own party should scare EVERYONE.
