Retiring Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said that he hoped a Republican would challenge President Trump for the Republican presidential nomination in 2020 during an interview on CNN following Trump’s press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday.

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Flake if he thought Trump should be challenged for the Republican presidential nomination in 2020, to which Flake admitted that he has been saying there should be a Republican primary for some time.

“It’s probably a suicide mission for any other Republican right now, but it may not be a year-and-a-half from now,” Flake said.

Flake added that a Trump challenge should be mounted if nothing else to remind Republicans what it means to be a conservative.

“So, yes, I do hope somebody runs,” Flake said.

Flake himself has not ruled out possibly challenging Trump in 2020.
