|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."
