Donald Trump lashed out on Monday at a Republican senator who is criticising recent executive orders the president says would provide relief to those out of work due to the coronavirus and protect some from being evicted.

Mr Trump used a Monday morning tweet to call Nebraska GOP Senator Ben Sasse a "RINO," short for "Republican in name only," and mocked him over his last Senate campaign.

"RINO Ben Sasse, who needed my support and endorsement in order to get the Republican nomination for Senate from the GREAT State of Nebraska, has, now that he's got it (Thank you President T), gone rogue, again," the president tweeted. "This foolishness plays right into the hands of the Radical Left Dems!"

Mr Sasse, in a weekend statement, called Mr Trump's coronavirus relief-themed orders "unconstitutional slop." He and other GOP lawmakers, like Mr Trump, were sharply critical of former President Barack Obama's second-term use of executive orders.
