GOP Sen Calls Mattis’ Statements Against Trump ‘True, Honest, Necessary And Overdue’: Report



Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), one of the few Republicans in the Senate to have actually voted against the president, praised former Defense Secretary James Mattis on Thursday for speaking out against Donald Trump. She also suggested that she may not back Trump’s reelection campaign.

According to Politico’s Andrew Desiderio, the Alaskan Senator described Mattis’ statement denouncing the president as “true, honest, necessary and overdue.”

“Perhaps we’re getting to the point where we can be more honest with the concerns that we might hold internally, and have the courage of our own convictions to speak up,” Murkowski added.

Despite the fact that Murkowski seemingly endorsed Mattis’s claim that Trump was a danger to the future of American democracy, she said that she is still “struggling” over whether she should support the president’s reelection campaign.
