Donald Trump Primary: President 'Inviting' 2020 Challenge, Flake Says

WASHINGTON ― President Donald Trump couldn't resist a direct dig on Wednesday at one of his most vocal Republican critics, Sen. Ward might be able to beat Flake in the primary but would make a weak candidate in the general election.

The funds said that they were engaging in long term trades that should be taxed as long-term capital gains, because they left the profits from trades in a bank account rather than withdrawing the profits each time. McCain was one of three Republican senators to vote against the bill. Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, who is up for reelection next year. And now, see, I haven't mentioned any names. Jeff Flake, another Arizona Republican who has frequently criticized Trump.

Ward's comments come after a report surfaced last week that Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) were considering a challenge to Trump in 2020.

A rule change, though, would not have saved the latest Senate bill to replace ObamaCare, which was not subject to the 60-vote standard and narrowly failed anyway.

A year later, after sending mixed messages on his stance on legalizing undocumented immigrants, Trump returned to Phoenix just two weeks after bringing Bannon onto his campaign for what became known as his illegal immigration speech, in which he listed "victims of the Obama-Clinton open borders policies", and said there would be "zero tolerance for criminal aliens". It has also been suggested that Trump will spend $10 million of his own money to support a candidate who can defeat Flake, according to Vox.

Sources told Politico and CNN that the meeting was focused on getting rid of Flake, who Trump referred to as "the flake".

Dan Pfeiffer, a former senior Obama White House official, tweeted that the president was unjustly playing victim.

Mr. Pietrusza identifies a series of 19 -century presidents he calls "accidental" - John Tyler, Millard Fillmore, Andrew Johnson, and Chester Arthur, all of whom assumed the highest office after their predecessors died.


Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, a Democrat, has asked the Republican president to postpone Tuesday's event in light of his response to the street battles that broke out earlier this month at a protest against the removal of a Confederate statue in Charlottesville.

Surveys now show Flake with a cadaverous 18-per-cent approval rating and losing a primary to a pro-Trump challenger by 14 points.

In fact, Flake has voted in line with Trump's position 93.5 percent of the time, according to FiveThirtyEight's analysis of congressional votes as of August 2.

Trump did not mention by name that it was Arizona Sen. Dean Heller, while noting Heller might not have arrived yet, saying, "Dean Heller is here someplace or will shortly be here". He's now with @NancyPelosi.

It is not in Trump's interests to see either Heller or Flake lose in 2018. He needs to build his majority, not reduce it.

More than just staking out immigration stances unpopular beyond Trump's base, Republicans are also concerned that the president will go after Arizona Sens. A Trump opponent hoisted a sign depicting the president with horns.

In Reno, Trump pointed to veterans as examples of the kind of national pride and unity he says he's trying to inspire.

If so, then by all means he should do everything in his power to weaken Flake and Heller. He is the president of a faction of ugliness and intolerance that has no place in American society.
