President Donald Trump ridiculed Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake by implying that he could never run for office again due to his political record.

Flake has long been a thorn in the side of the president, opposing his trade initiatives and consistently decrying his personal character. Flake is not running for re-election in Arizona after approval ratings showed an uphill battle if he chose to pursue the office again.
