Senator Jeff Flake and President Donald Trump have not been friendly towards each other since Trump was elected in 2016.
Flake will be out of office in January of 2019 much to the delight of President Trump.
When asked about outgoing officials he took full credit for Flake's departure saying, "I retired Jeff Flake and I am proud of it."
Flake was never going to be a long term solution for Trump and to work together as both parties claim they want to do he had to go and knew he would not win re-election.
Don't feel bad for Flake though as he rarely did anything of real substance while acting as a Senator of Arizona.
Good riddance to bad rubbish!
