Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump confronts one of the senators from his party Jeff Flake – and Clinton remained just enjoy the situation. Republican Senator Jeff Flake said yesterday (Sunday) that probably will not support Trump presidential election. In response, the Republican presidential candidate called Flake “weak”.
Election campaign headquarters of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton jumped at the chance. In a statement released on her Twitter account of the candidate said that “Trump will remain in Washington to work with someone he was not insulted yet.”
In an interview with CBS News last night said Flake, a Republican senator from Arizona: “It is difficult to see a situation where Trump does not change, so I don’t go to support him in November.” He added that he would like to support the Republican candidate, but can not, he said.
Trump’s response was swift. Republican candidate took advantage of his Twitter account to settle the score with Flake wrote: “The Republican Party needs strong and committed leaders, and weak people like Jeff Flake, if it wants to stop illegal immigration.” Then he added that “the great state of Arizona, where I had just my election rally, there is a very weak Senator and ineffective – Jeff Flake.”
They are divided mainly over the issue of immigration. Flake is part of a bipartisan group of senators who initiated three years ago in a reform that would allow millions of illegal immigrants to regulate retroactively the status in the United States and receive citizenship under some conditions. Of the members of the Republican Party, were signed on offer among other things, Flake’s colleague John McCain, who is from Arizona, and other familiar senators like Marco Rubio of Florida and Lindsey Graham from South Carolina.
In an interview with CBS, Flake criticized Republican presidential candidate on what he called “360-degree rotation” Trump position regarding immigration reform. He said that his position “confused” by Trump, as defined, is problematic. “I think that the speech gave us all hope in Mexico that he was going to change his tone and soften the campaign,” Flake said, “but then came the speech he delivered in Arizona later in the day in which he looks back to the same position it was before.”
