Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) issued a statement Wednesday night asking if President Donald Trump has recanted his Oath of Office after the president suggested one way to deal with fake news is to challenge broadcast licenses.
The senator, who has made no bones about the fact he doesn’t support the president, tweeted the following Wednesday evening:
Mr. President:— Ben Sasse (@BenSasse) October 12, 2017
Are you recanting of the Oath you took on Jan. 20 to preserve, protect, and defend the 1st Amendment? pic.twitter.com/XLB7QXM3bQ
His anti-Trump antics have drawn the scorn of many Republicans in his home state, creating speculation he may seek re-election as a third-party candidate when he’s up in 2020.
