Chaffetz: It ‘Got a Little Too Personal’ Between Jeff Flake and Trump

‘Finally by the end of the year they have actually learned to work together, even Jeff Flake voted for the tax bill’


CHAFFETZ: "I do think it got a little too personal. I think when you stick to the issues, there are things that Jeff Flake and President Trump disagree with. But, also, one of the very best friends that Jeff Flake has is Mike Pence, the vice president. So they were very close when they worked together in the House. Hopefully that will smooth itself over, over the course of time. But it’s also a signal from some people to say, 'We like this Trump that works with us on tax reform. We want to see him come to the table and work in a united way with us moving forward.' I think that's a reasonable ask."
