Flake: Trump’s ‘Behavior’ Is Driving Away Young People from the GOP

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said President Donald Trump’s “behavior” was making it “very difficult for young people to identify with the Republican Party.”

Flake said, “If you look every four years, every presidential election cycle, we are as a country are 2 percent less white. Voters of color, it’s changing that way. I don’t think that we made enough of an effort as Republicans to appeal across the broader electorate.”

He added, “Then with young people as well given some of the positions and behavior that the president has exhibited I think it makes it very difficult for young people to identify with the Republican party. I think they have been walking away from the party in general. I think they’re at a dead sprint right now and we’ve got to change that.”
