Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska made his disdain for presumed GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump clear on social media Wednesday.

Responding to a tweet from the Republican National Committee thanking the candidates for making the party “better” with their efforts, Sasse responded sarcastically asking if it was coming from a parody account.

The senator proceeded to tweet he was writing an open letter to “Majority America” on the state of the election, slamming Trump and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton as untrustworthy.

This is not the first time Sasse has come out against Trump. He wrote an open letter in February expressing his frustrations with the “divide” he believes the billionaire is causing within the party.

“I’m a movement conservative who was elected over the objections of the GOP establishment. My current answer for who I would support in a hypothetical matchup between Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton is: Neither of them,” he said. “I sincerely hope we select one of the other GOP candidates, but if Donald Trump ends up as the GOP nominee, conservatives will need to find a third option.”

Sasse said Tuesday the results of the Indiana primary have not changed his views on Trump at all.
