General Opposition to Trump

During the 2016 campaign, a lot of elected representatives were against Trump. If they were against him then, they should be opposing his agenda and nominations now!

Republican U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski spent months withholding her endorsement of or opposition to Donald Trump, the party's presidential nominee. But on Saturday, Murkowski, who's running for re-election, condemned the GOP nominee, issuing a written statement that called for Trump to "step aside" and criticizing his crude comments about women that were made public in a video published Friday by the Washington Post.

2020 “I will not vote for Donald Trump. If Donald Trump wishes to defeat Hillary Clinton, he should do the only thing that will allow us to do so — step aside, and allow Mike Pence to be the Republican party’s nominee. If he fails to do so, I will not vote for Hillary Clinton but will instead write-in my vote for Mike Pence.”

"Let’s be clear the American people didn’t give the GOP a stamp of approval or a mandate to ram through an ideologically-driven, far-right agenda. If the election was a mandate for anything, it was for elected officials in both parties to break through the gridlock to finally start producing results." "During the election, Donald Trump seized on the nation’s discontent, convincing voters in swing states that he was the candidate who could drain the swamp while Hillary Clinton was the candidate of the status quo. Republicans should remember that when Trump campaigned, he wasn’t holding up a conservative manifesto at every rally. Instead, his message was simple: cut deals and deliver results."

1. Scathing “Open letter to Trump supporters” Feb 28, 2016 * "Mr. Trump’s relentless focus is on dividing Americans, and on tearing down rather than building back up this glorious nation” * "Which of the following quotes give you great comfort that (Trump is) in love with the First Amendment, that he is committed to defending the Constitution, that he believes in executive restraint, that he understands servant leadership?” He outlines 9 examples (From Putin to "closing down parts of the internet") 2. "Dumpster Fires More Popular than Trump" 3. " The Nebraska Republican was among Trump’s most prominent GOP critics during the campaign, blasting the billionaire and reality TV star as a “megalomaniac strongman” who lacked conservative principles, played race-baiting games and offered admiration for dictators." 4. Post election comment on Trump (11/8/2016) "“Starting today, I will do everything in my power to hold the President to his promises: to fight for an ethics reform package that upends cronyism and enacts term limits; to lead on repealing and replacing Obamacare; and to nominate judges who reject law-making by unelected courts,” Mr. Sasse said in a statement.

2018 "Heller has been skeptical of Trump in the past and back in May, Senator Heller was the first Nevada lawmaker to publically and strongly denounce Trump's comments about Hispanics, women and Arizona Senator John McCain during the primary election cycle." “I vehemently oppose our nominee and some of the comments and issues he brought up during the campaign,” Heller said during an interview with Nevada reporters one day after Ted Cruz suspended his campaign and hours before John Kasich did the same. “Things that he’s said about women and the Hispanic community across the West.” "Let's be very, very clear, I do not support Trump," Heller is shown saying.
