Collins on MSNBC said Trump "had an obligation, a moral obligation, to speak with absolute clarity from the very beginning" in his response to the violence that erupted at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Their conversation covered a wide range of topics touching on the war in Afghanistan, the opioid epidemic and her working relationship with Pres. Donald Trump.

Susan Collins, the ME senator who has become an intraparty thorn in President Donald Trump's side, became the first GOP elected official to openly question whether he should be chosen to represent the party in the 2020 election.
