Ben Sasse Responds To President-Elect Trump

Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, who fully embraced the Never Trump movement, responded on Facebook to Donald Trump’s surprise victory Tuesday.

“On Tuesday, America demanded disruption. My family and I congratulate President-Elect Trump on his decisive victory, and we pray that he will lead wisely and faithfully keep his oath to a Constitution of limited government. Starting today, I will do everything in my power to hold the President to his promises: to fight for an ethics reform package that upends cronyism and enacts term limits; to lead on repealing and replacing ObamaCare; and to nominate judges who reject law-making by unelected courts. Melissa and I wish the new First Family the best in the coming transition.” – Ben Sasse

Sasse is always a class act, and will be needed as a voice of steady conservative reason in this tumultuous time when the borders between Trumpism and conservative principles is so blurred.
