Sen. Lindsey Graham: "I Cannot In Good Conscience Support Donald Trump"

Donald Trump (L) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R)

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham took to Twitter today to make clear that he is definitely NOT on the Trump train:

It’s hard to believe that in a nation of more than 300 million Americans Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will be our choices for President.

As for me, I absolutely will NOT support Hillary Clinton for President.

Hillary Clinton represents the third term of Barack Obama & our nation cannot afford to continue those failed policies at home or abroad.

I also cannot in good conscience support Donald Trump because I do not believe he is a reliable Republican conservative, do not believe he is a reliable GOP conservative, nor has he displayed the judgment and temperament to serve as Commander in Chief.

Finally, I do not plan to attend the Republican convention in Cleveland this summer.

After the election, regardless of who wins, I'll do everything I can to help new President deal w/ the many challenges facing our nation.

Of course, The Donald wasted no time responding:

"I fully understand why Lindsey Graham cannot support me. If I got beaten as badly as I beat him, and all the other candidates he endorsed, I would not be able to give my support either," he said in a statement.

"Every time I see Lindsey Graham spew hate during interviews I ask why the media never questions how I single handily destroyed his hapless run for President. As a candidate who did not receive 1% in his own state - compared to my victory at nearly 40% with many others in the race - he has zero credibility."
