Because he can. I suspect Lisa understands her constituency better than Trump. Last time around she lost to a primary challenger and won as a write in.

Murkowski has the wisdom to know that now that the repubs have their tax bill & conservatives on the supreme court, they have no use for the trump anymore...

We've heard that before.

RadCons are never satisfied.  There's always one more dollar to snatch or one more right to shred.

an article from Wash Post:

Once again, Lisa Murkowski was all alone.

Eight years ago, Republican leaders abandoned the Alaska senator after she lost to a tea party primary challenger. On Saturday, some 20 hours after delivering an anguished speech to a nearly empty Senate chamber, she etched her place in history as the only GOP senator to oppose Brett M. Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

She also became the target of sharp criticism from President Trump, who predicted in a brief telephone interview Saturday that she would “never recover” from her vote and never be forgiven by the people of her state.

As the rest of her party celebrated Kavanaugh’s ascent to the nation’s highest court after a tumultuous nomination jolted by allegations of sexual misconduct, Murkowski reflected on what she said was a wrenching decision that had kept her from eating and sleeping well.

“Painful,” she said late Friday, describing her choice, which she attributed to concerns about Kavanaugh’s temperament when he testified Sept. 27 before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the allegations. After the vote on Saturday, she voiced hope that Kavanaugh would work “to restore or build that public confidence.”

and another:

President Trump predicted Saturday that Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) “will never recover” politically for her vote against Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh as he celebrated his nominee’s ascension following an extraordinarily brutal confirmation process.

In a brief telephone interview with The Washington Post, Trump said voters in Alaska “will never forgive” Murkowski for voting against confirming Kavanaugh, and he forecast her defeat in a Republican primary should she run for reelection in 2022.

“I think she will never recover from this,” Trump said. “I think the people from Alaska will never forgive her for what she did.”

The people of Alaska don't care what the trump says. The freaks lead by Princess SparkleMoose palin nominated a nutbar in the senate primary, as the princess was all butthurt that Murkowski's dad didn't name the princess to sit in the senate of the USA and named his daughter. Frank resigned his senate seat when he was elected Gov of Alaska. I suspect Alaskan's hate the tump to the same degree they hate Princess SparkleMoose palin.
