In an MSNBC appearance, she alludes to the fact that Trump may somehow not be the GOP’s nominee in the 2020 presidential election, before ultimately saying that there’s “a long ways between now and that point.”
Collins wrote in House Speaker Paul Ryan’s name in November instead of voting for any of the presidential candidates on the ballot. She said, “That was very hard for me to do as a lifelong Republican.”
She’s one of a handful of Republicans who voted against the GOP health care plan. But she said she remains hopeful of a bipartisan solution.
She also renewed her criticism of Trump’s handling of the racial violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. She said he “failed to meet the standard” of what’s expected of a president.

When the primary season started, it soon became apparent that, much like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Mr. Trump was connecting with many Americans who felt that their voices were not being heard in Washington and who were tired of political correctness. But rejecting the conventions of political correctness is different from showing complete disregard for common decency. Mr. Trump did not stop with shedding the stilted campaign dialogue that often frustrates voters. Instead, he opted for a constant stream of denigrating comments, including demeaning Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) heroic military service and repeatedly insulting Fox News host Megyn Kelly.
With the passage of time, I have become increasingly dismayed by his constant stream of cruel comments and his inability to admit error or apologize. But it was his attacks directed at people who could not respond on an equal footing — either because they do not share his power or stature or because professional responsibility precluded them from engaging at such a level — that revealed Mr. Trump as unworthy of being our president.
