Former Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake (R) tweeted Monday that President Trump was using ‘authoritarian’ language.

“I never thought I would live to see an American President speak this way, using language the can only be described as authoritarian,” Flake tweeted, referring to a tweet by Trump in which the president threatened to destroy Turkey’s economy if the country does anything “off limits.”
“Fellow Republicans, where is the line?” Flake added. 

The article goes on to state the following:

“Reckless, outrageous and undignified behavior has become excused as telling it like it is when it is actually just reckless, outrageous and undignified,” Flake said while announcing his retirement last year. “And when such behavior emanates from the top of our government, it is something else. It is dangerous to a democracy.”
