NARRATOR: Enabler: a person who allows for the destructive behavior of another. Susan Collins has voted 94% of the time with Donald Trump, the key vote to pass his trillion-dollar corporate tax cut that put Medicare and Social Security at risk, voting seven times to eliminate protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

DONALD TRUMP (FROM OUTSIDE VIDEO): Susan Collins we want to thank. Susan's around some place. Susan? Thank you, Susan.

NARRATOR: Voting to confirm 181 judges appointed by Trump.

DONALD TRUMP (FROM OUTSIDE VIDEO): How good was Senator Susan Collins yesterday, really? Really.

NARRATOR: And time and again, making excuses for Trump's behavior.

SUSAN COLLINS (FROM OUTSIDE VIDEO): I believe that the President has learned from this case. He will be much more cautious in the future.

NARRATOR: Susan Collins has been an enabler. 24 years in Washington is long enough.
