Arizona Senator Jeff Flake's dramatic Tuesday announcement that he will not seek reelection is where he called on his colleagues to stand up to President Donald Trump. On Wednesday, Flake said he believes "a lot more" of his GOP colleagues will begin to speak out against the president's politics and behavior. Later on Wednesday morning, Trump responded to Flake's comment, tweeting that he received a standing ovation from Republican senators during a meeting on Capitol Hill on Tuesday afternoon.
