Former Sen. Jeff Flake talks Trump, GOP in Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Recently retired Republican U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake vowed not to vote for President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election, but added that he hopes Trump doesn’t get impeached before the president’s first term is up.

Flake made the remarks Thursday while in Nashville to discuss Trump, politics and promote his new book.
