Jeb Bush joined a growing list of Republicans who have announced they will not be endorsing Donald Trump.
The former Florida governor made it clear in the lengthy Facebook post that he will not be voting for Trump in November. He will not be casting a ballot for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton either.
“In November, I will not vote for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, but I will support principled conservatives at the state and federal levels, just as I have done my entire life,” Bush wrote.
His Facebook post followed announcements by many prominent Republicans that they will be skipping the Republican National Convention and not endorsing the presumptive GOP nominee.
Bush, who suspended his own unsuccessful campaign for the nomination after the South Carolina primary, does not think the candidate choices are the right ones for America.
“American voters have made it clear that Washington is broken, but I’m not optimistic that either of the leading candidates for President will put us on a better course,” he wrote.
“The American Presidency is an office that goes beyond just politics. It requires of its occupant great fortitude and humility and the temperament and strong character to deal with the unexpected challenges that will inevitably impact our nation in the next four years.”
Trump relentlessly attacked Bush many times during the primary season and it seems the former candidate is still not over the personal attacks.
“Donald Trump has not demonstrated that temperament or strength of character,” Bush wrote. “He has not displayed a respect for the Constitution. And, he is not a consistent conservative. These are all reasons why I cannot support his candidacy.”
