In Effort to Unite Party, Trump Attacks Republican Senators

This is just insane. Trump has a meeting with Republican Senators and proceeds to attack several of them.

In particular, Donald Trump threatened to attack Jeff Flake and campaign against him to ensure he loses. But Flake responded that he is not on the ballot this year in Arizona.

Trump also attacked Mark Kirk and Ben Sasse. That might actually help Kirk, who is probably going to lose Illinois.

Sasse’s spokesman referred to the election as a dumpster fire.

Trump’s most tense exchange was with Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who has been highly critical of the business mogul’s candidacy, especially his rhetoric and policies on immigration that the senator has argued alienate many Latino and other voters in Arizona.

Trump said at the meeting that he has yet to attack Flake hard, but threatened to begin doing so.

Flake stood up to Trump by urging him to stop attacking Mexicans. Trump predicted that Flake would lose his reelection, at which point Flake informed Trump that he was not on the ballot this year, said the sources, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to disclose details of the private meeting.

You really need to read the whole thing.

Then go free the delegates.
