GOP Sen. Jeff Flake: Republicans Complicit If They Don’t Call Out Trump for Incivility

Arizona Senator Jeff Flake said on Sunday that Republicans who do not call out President Donald Trump for incivility are complicit. “There are times when you have to stand up and say, ‘I’m sorry, this is wrong,’” Flake said on CBS’ Face the Nation. “There are truths that are self-evident. And you’ve got to call—whether it’s the White House or other elected officials—to task when they’re not doing when they should.” Flake, a Republican, has been critical of the president, but commended him for the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court and his efforts to reform regulations and the tax code.
