I find this as a big story. All former living Presidents and this not limited to their staffs and former cabinet members who are standing ready to vote against Trump. I used this pic as it was the only one I could find that included all four but I am sure if George HW Bush were alive, he would not support Trump either. This is a big story because all 4 and former staffers know what the job entails and Trump is not good for the country. Democrat and Republican former leaders are saying.. No to Trump.
The last living former Republican president, George W. Bush, has said he won’t back Trump. Nor will his brother Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida who was mercilessly ridiculed by Trump when they fought for the GOP nomination in 2016. Trump’s former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and former Chief of Staff and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly have both expressed opposition to Trump as well, with Mattis calling him “the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try” and Kelly saying he wished “we had some additional choices.” Other ex-Trump officials have spoken out against him as well, including Homeland Security advisor Tom Bossert, communications staffer Omarosa Manigault, National Economic Council director Gary Cohn, Navy Secretary Richard Spencer, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and National Security advisor John Bolton.
A group of 73 former U.S. national security officials in the Republican administrations, including former heads of the CIA and FBI and Trump administration officials, endorsed Biden, asserting that Trump’s “corrupt behavior renders him unfit to serve as president.”Former Trump Assistant Director of Homeland Security Elizabeth Neumann accused Trump of ignoring the threat of domestic terrorism and early pandemic warnings, claiming he “gave permission” to white supremacists.
These people are putting country over party. So How many democratic political people are voting Trump? Joe Lieberman? LOL. Who knows with Lieberman.. He talks from both sides of his mouth and has endorsed Susan Collins, but that is the only dem I see backing Trump.
He talks up Biden but I would bet he will vote Trump. Lieberman is in the endorsement business for who ever can do something for Lieberman. www.newsweek.com/… He was backing Trump in 2017 but he wanted the FBI job.
This morning Tom Ridge and Carla Fiorna just endorsed Biden/Harris.
This is coming from Forbes. I guess they are fake news now.
