Sen. Jeff Flake cast himself as one of President Trump's most vocal opponents as he said "enough" to the president on Tuesday — but he's voted in support of Trump's positions almost 92 percent of the time, according to FiveThirtyEight.
Why it matters: Flake may have genuine disagreements with Trump's tone and style, but you wouldn't be able to tell from his voting record.
Four times Flake did vote against Trump:
- Extending government funding to include Hurricane Harvey relief funds in September.
- Imposing additional sanctions on North Korea, Iran, and Russia in July.
- Imposing Russia sanctions in June.
- The 2017 FY appropriations bill.
