President Donald Trump praised Dr. Kelli Ward for challenging Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake in the primary.
“Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake Jeff Flake, who is WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “He’s toxic!”
Flake recently went on a media book tour, denouncing Trump and his agenda on camera before urging the Republicans to follow a different path.
“We pretended that the emperor wasn’t naked,” he wrote about Trump in his book Conscience of a Conservative. “Even worse: We checked our critical faculties at the door and pretended that the emperor was making sense.”
Trump is scheduled to rally with supporters in Phoenix, Arizona next week.
