Colin Powell: "The President Has Drifted Away from The Constitution"; Trump Fires Back


POLITICO

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell said Sunday morning on CNN's "State of the Union" that he will be voting for Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the upcoming presidential election this November.  

This way, Powell follows the steps of his former boss, previous Republican President George W. Bush, and decides to turn his back on Trump as he did in the past elections, where he publicly announced his support to Hillary Clinton's candidacy. 

The reason Powell will not be voting for Donald Trump is that, according to him, the president has "drifted away from the constitution" for his implacable response to stop the violent riots that have been erupting across the country and which have caused terrible damage to small businesses, police departments, vandalizing historic monuments, and triggering a movement aimed at smearing the country's police forces. 

"I certainly cannot in any way support President Trump this year," said Powell. He lies. He lies about things. And he gets away with it because people will not hold him accountable," said Powell. 

Powell's announcement did not go unnoticed and after this statement, President Trump went on the attack on Twitter:

"Colin Powell, a real stiff who was very responsible for getting us into the disastrous Middle East Wars, just announced he will be voting for another stiff, Sleepy Joe Biden," the president said in a tweet, adding "Didn't Powell say that Iraq had 'weapons of mass destruction?' They didn't, but off we went to WAR!"

  3. Powell, you lying POS. Who held you and George Bush responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans and British soldiers and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis for your lies sending us to war? You traitor. You'd vote against your party and vote for Biden the Ignorant over supporting the rest of America. You hurt us under Bush because you lied. Now you want to hurt us again. Just retire and shut the fuck up so maybe you can die with a smattering of honor.

  5. Yeah I used to have high regards for Colin Powell. I even thought he would be our first black President, but hatred for our President continues to cloud the judgement of once sound men. Now he supports a call to violence by the media, and many other organizers. He supports vliberal governors and mayor's who refused to protect law abiding citizens.
