GOP Senator called a rebuke of President Trump by former Defense Secretary James Mattis “honest, necessary, and overdue.”

According to Mediaite:

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) praised former Defense Secretary James Mattis’ words against President Donald Trump on Thursday, calling them “honest” and “overdue.”

Mattis said on Wednesday that President Trump “is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead he tries to divide us… We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership.”

In response, Murkowski reportedly told Politico that Mattis’ comments were “true, honest, necessary and overdue,” before admitting she’s “struggling” on whether to support the president in the election this year.

“I am struggling with it. I have struggled with it for a long time,” she said. “I think right now as we are all struggling to find ways to express the words that need to be expressed appropriately, questions about who I’m going to vote for not going to vote for I think are distracting.”

Other senators dismissed the rebuke of Mattis with most saying he was entitled to his opinion.
