GOP Sen Sasse Hits Trump on Personal Life: We Need a Guy Who Believes an ‘Oath Binds Him’


Wednesday on CNN’s “Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin,” referencing Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump writing about extramarital affairs in his book, “The Art of the Deal,” Republican Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) took aim at Trump’s personal life.


Sasse said, “We are talking about oaths. In a system of  government that is limited, we believe that oaths are really important because you are taking an oath to fulfill a specific office. So a lot of the media want to make a thing about whatever sexual scandal, this, that, or other thing. Here’s the question I’m asking, isn’t it pretty weird for a guy to brag about trying to get married women to break their oaths? I think that’s weird. There is a difference in life between saying we all make mistakes and we are imperfect. I believe that. Mythology has me chief of sinners. That’s a different thing than saying it’s really cool to break an oath. I care about whether or not the guy who is going to be our next president takes an oath to the Constitution and believes that oath binds him.”
