    GOP Senator Says He 'Regularly' Considers Leaving The Republican Party

    Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Nebraska, said on Twitter Saturday that he "regularly" considers leaving the Republican Party. He made the remark in response to a tweet by a user who said she switched from being a member of the Democratic Party to having no affiliation.

    Sasse is a frequent critic of President Trump. After Mr. Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in July, Sasse told "CBS This Morning" the president "isn't leading." In a press conference after the meeting with Putin, Mr. Trump publicly disagreed with the conclusions of American intelligence leaders that Russia interfered in the 2016 election.

    "Right now the president isn't leading. We negotiated from a position of weakness yesterday and Vladimir Putin walked away from Helsinki with a win. It's a disaster," Sasse said.

    He is considered to be a possible presidential candidate in 2020 or beyond.

    However, Sasse is a conservative Republican and often votes in line with the president's priorities, according to FiveThirtyEight. He is expected to vote to confirm Mr. Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

    Well, if you're serious, Sen. Sasse, get out of the Republican Party and if you dare, return when the party is finally awake.  Right now, if the GOP is gonna blindly follow Trump, then I guess former House Speaker John Boehner would be right in his take that not only is the GOP asleep, "There is no Republican Party", only the Trump Party.

    Just Saying.
