In a classic case of buyer's remorse, a number of Republican Members Of Congress are regretting their support for President Trump, some going so far as to abdicating their roles. Both Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee and Arizona Senator Jeff Flake have stated that they will not be running for re-election as they are unable to stomach the commander-in-chief's leadership style.

GOP leaders have strong words for Trump

Although he has supported trump’s position in 90% of his votes, in a prepared speech on the Senate floor, Flake stated that Trump was causing an “alarming and dangerous state of affairs” with his “reckless, outrageous and undignified behavior.” Flake further stated the regret he had for “the state of our disunion, the disrepair and destructiveness of our politics, the indecency of our discourse, and the compromise of our moral authority.” Citing Trump's coarseness as dangerous to our democracy, he described the president's activities as a “corruption of the spirit and weakness.”

After Trump tweeted that he “couldn't get elected dog catcher in Tennessee,” Corker spoke out on a number of television programs about Trump's “great difficulty with the truth on many issues” and questioned why the 45 president “lowers himself to such a low, low standard, and debases our country in the way that he does.”

Although he has not stated that he would not seek reelection, veteran Arizona Senator John McCain has also described Trump's political ideology as “half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solving problems” which was causing deleterious effects on America's stance as a world leader.

Other Republicans are equally unhappy

Aside from active members of Congress, other notable Republicans have also come out with harsh criticisms of the current president. Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney has stated that Trump's activities have “caused racists to rejoice, minorities to weep, and the vast heart of America to mourn." Former President George W. Bush recently described Trump's communicative style as "discourse degraded by casual cruelty" and stated that the worldview he is fostering was little more than "nationalism distorted into nativism." Bush also said that under Trump's spurious leadership "our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication."

While many Americans voted for Trump in order to escape the rigamarole of politics, as usual, a large number of them are sharing in same buyer's remorse, realizing that his ineffectiveness as a leader will only be compounded by a Republican-led Congress that doesn't support him, and even more ineffective should America select more Democratic candidates as Republicans abandon ship.

Though Senate Republicans currently hold a 52 to 46 majority, with the disruptions in the Republican Party, the 2018 election could give Democrats the opportunity to gain a majority and more suitably oppose Trump's agenda. Based on his growing lack of support, it could be that Trump's greatest detractor is himself.
