When Donald Trump announced he was running for president last June, we who knew all along it was a bad idea prayed it was a joke. He was not (and still isn’t) a conservative, and quickly showed that his support was celebrity-style superficial. In short, he has been an (R) version of Obama. Many believed he wouldn’t be in the game for long.
Now we’re faced with Trump as the presumptive GOP nominee. It’s clear that we underestimated the pro-Trump movement, which is fueled by misdirected anger. But now they are underestimating those of us who vow to never vote for Trump.
We know where Hillary stands on the issues, but Trump is even more dangerous since we have no idea what he would do once in office. His flip-flopping just in the past 11 months should set people on edge. Supporters of his can’t give policy specifics because Trump himself doesn’t! They mistakenly put faith in a candidate who has been in his own reality show all along.
My desire to not see Trump in the White House is coupled with a desire to punish his supporters by not supporting their man. That’s the measure of my resolve as a member of the #NeverTrump movement. He has absolutely hijacked this election cycle, which once showed promise.
