“I’m now looking at the possibility of a Republican blood bath in the Senate, and that’s why I haven’t been on the Trump train yet,” Sasse said, according to the Times. “This is why I did not agree to go to his re-election committee, and why I did not campaign for him.”
He said Trump’s defeat in November “seemed likely” and warned “we are looking at the barrel of a blue tsunami,” according to the Times.
Within nine minutes of the call on Wednesday, Sasse opposed Trump’s foreign policy, saying the president had turned his back on the allies and ignored human rights.

“I do not apologize for fighting for my values against him in areas where I think he is lacking, not just for a Republican but for an American,” Sasse said in an audio, reported Times.
He also blames Trump for young people who are potentially leaning on Democratic candidates in future elections.
