One of Donald Trump's harshest Republican critics says America "demanded disruption" by electing the billionaire businessman as president.

In a statement Wednesday, Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska congratulated Trump. Sasse said he and his family will pray that Trump "will lead wisely and faithfully keep his oath to a Constitution of limited government."   

Sasse said he will now do everything he can to hold Trump to promises he made during the campaign. Among them are replacing President Barack Obama's health care law, nominating judges "who reject law-making by unelected courts," and fighting for ethics reform "that upends cronyism" and enacts term limits.

Sasse last month had called on Trump to abandon his presidential bid after the release of old video footage that featured Trump making vulgar sexual comments.
