Senator John McCain, a former Republican presidential candidate, has announced that he has withdrawn support for Donald Trump amid the candidate’s controversial comments.
McCain revealed in a lengthy statement that he and his wife Cindy will not vote for either Trump or Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, but instead for “some good conservative Republican who is qualified to be President.”
“In addition to my well known differences with Donald Trump on public policy issues, I have raised questions about his character after his comments on Prisoners of War, the Khan Gold Star family, Judge Curiel and earlier inappropriate comments about women. Just this week, he made outrageous statements about the innocent men in the Central Park Five case,” McCain started off the statement, posted on his website. “As I said yesterday, there are no excuses for Donald Trump’s offensive and demeaning comments in the just released video; no woman should ever be victimized by this kind of inappropriate behavior. He alone bears the burden of his conduct and alone should suffer the consequences.”
“I have wanted to support the candidate our party nominated. He was not my choice, but as a past nominee, I thought it important I respect the fact that Donald Trump won a majority of the delegates by the rules our party set. I thought I owed his supporters that deference,” he continued.
