|Former Secretaries of State Colin Powell & Hillary Clinton|
The Daily Beast shares that former Secretary of State Colin Powell has announced he will be voting for Democrat (and former Secretary of State) Hillary Clinton in this year's presidential race.
The former George W. Bush cabinet member spoke at a luncheon on Long Island and, according to Newsday reporter Robert Brodsky, told attendees that Republican nominee Donald Trump “insults us every day” and is “selling people a bill of goods,” and so he will cast his vote for fellow ex-secretary Clinton. Powell has previously resisted declaring his support for either candidate, but has chided Trump as a “national disgrace.”
Reporter Robert Brodsky of New York Newsday first broke the news:
