All quotes by Jeff Flake on Trump Presidency

The notion that one should stay silent as the norms and values that keep America strong are undermined and as the alliances and agreements that ensure the stability of the entire world are routinely threatened by the level of thought that goes into 140 characters – the notion that one should say and do nothing in the face of such mercurial behavior is ahistoric and, I believe, profoundly misguided.feedback

Here's the bottom line: The path that I would have to travel to get the Republican nomination is a path I'm not willing to take, and that I can't in good conscience take. When the next generation asks us, Why didn't you do something? Why didn't you speak up?' What are we going to say? Mr. President, I rise today to say enough.feedback

It is clear at this moment that a traditional conservative who believes in limited government and free markets, who is devoted to free trade and who is pro-immigration, has a narrower and narrower path to nomination in the Republican Party – the party that for so long has defined itself by belief in those things. Mr. President, I rise today to say, enough.feedback

I rise today to say enough. We did not become great by calling true things fake. This spell will pass, but not by next year.feedback

We pretended that the emperor wasn't naked. To carry on in the spring of 2017 (after Trump assumed office) as if what was happening was anything approaching normalcy required a determined suspension of critical faculties. And tremendous powers of denial.feedback
