Trump Blast Flake “Unelectable in the Great State of Arizona”

Trump blasts Flake

President Donald Trump slammed Senator Jeff Flake calling him “unelectable in the Great State of Arizona.” He also said the senator’s political career is “toast” in a post on Twitter on Sunday night.

Trump made the comments after Flake was caught on microphone criticizing him on Saturday during his conversation with Mesa Mayor John Giles. The Arizona senator said GOP is toast if it becomes the “party of Roy Moore and Donald Trump.”

Flake hosted a town hall meeting at GECO, an aerospace company in Mesa, Arizona. During the event, the senator discussed and answered questions about GOP tax reform bill and possible run against Trump in 2020.

After an hour discussion, he stepped off stage without removing the lapel microphone. The sound from the mic to the speakers was muted. However, the audio from the mic continued to feed to the cameras of ABC 15 Arizona.

The TV station’s camera started to roll in the middle of Flake’s sentence stating his concerned about the future of their party under Trump and Moore. It also caught Giles response. The Mesa Mayor said, “And I am not throwing smoke at you, but you are the guy. Just for fun, think how much fun it would be, just to be the foil you know. And point out what an idiot this guy is.”
