Coons: ‘Gravely Concerned’ About America Remaining ‘Beacon of Freedom’ If We Have Only Blind Trump Loyalists in Senate

On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) stated that the departure of Senators Bob Corker (R-TN) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) along with the prospect that the only Republicans in the Senate will be those who “are blindly loyal” to the president cause him grave concern about America staying the the world’s beacon of freedom.

Coons said, “If the voices of Chairman Corker and Senator Flake are missing from the other side of the dais in the Foreign Relations Committee, and if, as Senator Inhofe is saying, only those who are blindly loyal to President Trump should continue to serve as Republicans in the Senate, then I’m gravely concerned about what that says for America remaining the beacon of freedom in the world.”
