“My name is Tina. I live in the great state of Florida and I am a former Trump supporter. Voted for him twice, but never again.

“January 6th was an eyeopener for me, and I think Trump certainly did instigate. I think he fueled that fire. The whole January 6th is, that whole process is a stain on our country that’s gonna go down through history as being a black mark on that whole election. And I’m a retired veteran. My husband was a Navy chief who died in a aircraft mishap, supporting and defending this country. My son spent 11 months in Iraq in 2023. They fought for that election process, and for someone to thumb their nose at it, to me, Trump crossed the line. President Trump crossed the line at that moment.

“And then on top of that, when he disparaged after listening to John Kelly, and I believe John Kelly, I believe in that Marine, when he said in a private, when Trump said in a private conversation that these men were losers, these military service members were losers. They’re just a bunch of losers, and no, of course, I’m not saying it verbatim, that hurt. That hurt my husband’s sacrifice. Doesn’t, do not qualify him as a loser. He’s a winner. He’s a hero. So for a president to belittle our service members was the final straw for me. I cannot support a man who can’t lead the people, the men and women who serve this country.

“When President Trump speaks highly of these dictators such as Russian, President Putin, it just chills me, especially seeing the devastation that’s being leveled to the country and the people of Ukraine, seeing the, homes, civilians being targeted and for him to speak highly of Putin is, I think that’s misguided.

“It’s, well, it’s more than misguided. It’s chilling. I cannot support a man that is an instigator of an insurrection of our country. I cannot vote for a man who has belittled the fighting men and women of our country.”
