“I think that he’d sell out the country, honestly. I really do.”

“My name is Michael and I live in the state of Florida and I voted for Donald Trump in 2016. The reasons that I won’t be supporting him in 2024 are numerous, but the biggest one is I served, I had the privilege of serving in the United States Navy for 26 years and I was utterly appalled. His conduct, particularly on the 6th of January, inciting people to overthrow the government. I just wanted to vomit after seeing the things that happened that day. There’s no way that I can possibly condone that. I also know how extremely difficult it is for someone to aspire the rank of a four-star general officer or an admiral, and the way that he treated senior military leaders in this country was just utterly disgusting. Not only that, the fact that he chose to call those people that had died for our country “losers,” categorizing them as losers, was totally unacceptable to me. I did not appreciate his conduct in handling and working with Senator John McCain. I just thought it was a slap in the face, if you will, to the people that have served in uniform.

“I don’t know if he even has a moral compass. I don’t even know that he would clearly understand right from wrong and I do not know what motivates him. Just this very morning, I learned that he is selling Bibles. He’s selling Bibles. I guess part of the Christian nationalist movement but is trying to give the illusion that he is a Christian or a man of faith and I find that highly offensive. I’d really love to know where he worships regularly because I seriously doubt that. I just think he’s a sham and I regret voting for him in the first place. He’s certainly not following any of the teachings espoused by Jesus and I think he’s an embarrassment to our nation.

“The fact that he was speaking about wanting to become a dictator really alarmed me. The fact that he would embrace that idea, that he doesn’t understand that his role as president is a servant of the people. He is there to serve us. We’re not there to worship him. I mean, that’s the position that he’s put people in to where they have broken the law on his behalf. They have done things, they have committed acts, that clearly violate standards of decency and morality and federal and state and local laws, with complete disregard. He could care less because it’s something that impedes his way of belief or his way of thinking and I think that he’d sell out the country, honestly. I really do.”
