U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake hasn’t been shy about criticizing President Trump. He started long before last November’s election and has continued since Inauguration Day.

And in a new book, Flake takes aim at Trump’s style and his often-abusive language, as well as his substance, including his anti-free-trade stance and attacks on immigrants and refugees.

But some have been disappointed by how Flake has voted on a number of things, including his support for Trump’s Cabinet nominees.

We spoke with Flake about those issues and his book, "Conscience of a Conservative: A Rejection of Destructive Politics and a Return to Principle."
