Here are the 11 most damning. Trump capitalized on frustration and alienation with the two-party system. "The Senate is at its best when we work together on things". With hindsight, it is clear that we all but ensured the rise of Donald Trump. "It's really going to take the parties working together".
Read Flake's full essay here. And tremendous powers of denial. The benchmark S&P 500 Index has gained 9.4 percent since Trump took office on January 20, lagging a 16.2 percent S&P gain during Obama's first months in office.
Flake routinely catalogs Trump alongside evil and danger - at one point, he compares the Republican Party trying to make peace with this president to a German scholar who sold his soul to the devil.
Flake was critical of Trump during the presidential campaign and was one of the first sitting Republican lawmakers to publicly voice his disapproval of the nominee.
Other liberal commentators acidly observed that Flake has remained a loyal vote for GOP leaders and Trump, even as he worries that Trump's penchant for bombast and ridiculing his opponents works against conservative goals. Jennifer Senior, writer for the Books of The Times at The New York Times, wonders what Flake's book will do for the Republican Party, if anything at all. "And I'm afraid they're seeing too much of that". Ignoring them isn't an option.

Republicans, he continued, need to recognize that Americans voted Trump into office and the party overwhelmingly nominated him. "If this was our Faustian bargain, then it was not worth it", he wrote in an excerpt published by Politico.
This line is the crux on which the whole piece stands.
No wonder there have been whispers about Trump working to primary Flake, who is up for re-election in 2018. They have taken principled stances that most elected officials in their party refuse to do.
Corporate lobbyists and Republicans consistently argue that a cut in the corporate income tax is needed to help corporations be more competitive. "In 2017, we seem to have lost our appreciation for just how hard won and vulnerable those institutions are".
Sen. Flake is one of the biggest names yet to voice such strong and harsh concerns about the unsafe president, but he certainly won't be the last to do so. "While conservatives have sought to advance political aims through the Republican Party, the Republican Party has never been a truly conservative party".
