JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) on Wednesday said that he cannot bring himself to back Donald Trump, despite hoping that he could eventually come around to voting for the GOP nominee.

“I don’t see how I get there anymore,” he said on CNN.

Kinzinger said that he hoped he could back Trump after the Republican convention, but “decided to hold off” when Trump suggested he would not uphold the United States’ commitment to NATO allies.

“And then this spat, this unbelievable spat with a family of a fallen soldier, a fallen soldier who swore to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” he continued. “Between that, between of course blaming George W. Bush for 9/11 and all the other sins we’ve seen in the past, Donald Trump for me is beginning to cross a lot of red lines of the unforgivable in politics.”

The congressman said he will not vote for Clinton, but will instead write a candidate in or skip the presidential race on the November ballot.
