Republican Gov. Charlie Baker (R-MA) blasted President Donald Trump after the president had a call with governors and mayors Monday.

The president blasted the leaders as “weak” for refusing to strike back at protesters, jail them for a decade and deploy the National Guard to shoot at them.

The governor, who generally stays away from attacking Trump, didn’t hold back in his response.

“I heard what the president said today about dominating and fighting,” Baker said, according to Boston.com. “I know I should be surprised when I hear incendiary words like this from him, but I’m not. At so many times during these last several weeks, when the country needed compassion and leadership the most, it simply was nowhere to be found. Instead, we got bitterness, combativeness, and self-interest. That’s not what we need in Boston, it’s not what we need right now in Massachusetts,” he said, as he appeared to choke up, “and it’s definitely not what we need across this great country of ours either.”

President Donald Trump spoke about his plans for the Supreme Court during a Friday night campaign rally in Bemidji, Minnesota.

Trump took the stage before news was announced that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had died and appeared to not know of the Supreme Court vacancy.

Trump explained to his audience why he had put Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on his shortlist for a Supreme Court nomination.

“I said, you know, I have to have someone that we’re going sure we get approved and the only one I could think of is Ted, because he’s going to get 50 Republican votes and he’s going to get 50 Democrat votes — they’ll do anything to get him out of the Senate," Trump said.

Embattled Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) urged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to move forward with a vote on whomever President Donald Trump nominates to replace Ruth Bader Ginsberg on the United States Supreme Court.

"This U.S. Senate should vote on President Trump's next nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court," McSally said.

As the race is Special Election to fill a vacant seat, Kelly could be sworn in as early as November 30 if he prevails.
