Sen. Jeff Flake On The View




THE VIEW -- Flake calls being a senator "honor of my lifetime," shares why he's leaving at end of term: "I could not speak out as I am now."


"We shouldn't condone it!" Flake talks taking on Pres. Trump, and why he's not returning to the Senate after his term: "There is no way you can be competitive in a Republican primary ... if you don't agree with the president's position and you don't condone his behavior."


"We have huge issues that we've gotta solve that will only be solved if both parties agree to share the credit, and most importantly, share the political risks," Flake said of needed bipartisan leadership.


Joy Behar questioned Sen. Flake on his NRA stance in wake of tragic Texas church shooting: "Now that you're not running again, how do you feel about speaking the truth about the NRA?"


Flake called for improved information-sharing between agencies after the shooting: "It needs to be better."

"Here's an example of a guy that maybe stopped some more shooting by having a gun. He would've passed, probably, a universal background check," Sara Haines said of how this tragedy could be avoided. "The bad guy wouldn't have! A universal check may screen more people out!"
