Flake comes hard in floor speech vs Trump media attacks [VIDEO]

Says attacks on media, facts could damage U.S. long term

U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said in a speech Wednesday that he was concerned President Donald Trump’s attacks on both the media and facts could cause long-term damage to the United States.

“Without truth, and a principled fidelity to truth and to shared facts, Mr. President, our democracy will not last.”

Flake said Americans have a birthright to question their leaders and do not simply bow to those in charge, no matter how facts may be manipulated.

“We know, no matter how powerful, no president will ever have dominion over objective reality,” he said. “No politician will ever tell us what the truth is and what it is not.”
