Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse doubled down on his criticism of Donald Trump by claiming the real estate mogul doesn’t have “any more core principles than a Kardashian marriage.”

In an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday, Sasse said the American people are “going to want more choices than two fundamentally dishonest New York liberals,” referring to Trump and Hillary Clinton. (RELATED: CIVIL WAR: GOP Senator Tears Into Trump, Vows Not To Vote For Him)

Host Joe Scarborough began by asking Sasse if there was “any way” he could support Trump and he said, “Given who this guy is now, I can’t see how we think that. I don’t think this guy has any more core principles than a Kardashian marriage.”

Scarborough later asked if Trump could “evolve” into someone the Nebraska senator could support and Sasse said, “I don’t think it’s conceivable. I think the American people are angry. They have a right to be angry, and they want to scream ‘no’ about Washington — I get that. But they’re going to want more choices than two fundamentally dishonest New York liberals. I’m not voting for either of these two people.”

[dcquiz] Sasse said the people that he could support for president were “two really good candidates who have a chance to win. So I hopefully the American people pick [crscore]Marco Rubio[/crscore] or [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore]. Let’s start with that. We’re — you know, we’re at the first day of March, we’re nine months away from an election. I think this is a lot more like 1860 than most people realize.”

“So, a lot of people want to pretend this is November 3rd or 4th already — it’s not. The American people are going to want more choices than two dishonest New York liberals. So that’s what they have now,” Sasse claimed.
