“My name is Greg, I live in Phoenix, and I did vote for Trump in both the 2016 and 2020 election. I voted for Trump predominantly because I’ve always voted for Republican president. My first president I voted for was Ronald Reagan, and I thought he was a great Republican candidate. I have problems with Trump because more than anything he’s a bully.

“He thinks he’s above the law, that he can do whatever he wants, claim presidential privilege, and do whatever he thinks he wants to do. That’s my biggest problem. I’m a fiscal conservative and a social moderate, and I kind of thought he was too. I thought we were going to align pretty well politically. Then he just turned into such a mean-spirited person. Vindictive, hateful, spiteful. The type of person I wouldn’t wanna be around or associate with.

“January 6th didn’t surprise me. I didn’t see any evidence of it. I didn’t get any messages saying, hey, show up at the Capitol. So I wasn’t in his inner circle, but as it happened, I had no doubt in my mind that Donald Trump was behind it in a very underhanded way so that he could shed blame should that become necessary. But I had no doubt in my mind that he was the chief instigator behind it.

“My biggest challenge with the way he acts as president is on the world stage. We more and more live in a global economy and a global political system, and he alienates foreign leaders worse than he does, even American leaders, to the point that America will end up standing as an island in the world of nations with no allies. And that’s probably what I worry about the most.”
