Reagan’s Son Turns On Trump For Saying Clinton Not ‘Loyal’ To Her Husband

In a series of tweets beginning early Monday morning, conservative author Michael Reagan renounced his support for Donald Trump’s candidacy and said that neither Nancy nor Ronald Reagan would have supported the Republican nominee.

Reagan, the son of the former President and his first wife, Jane Wyman, has recently criticized Trump in his columns. On Thursday, he wrote that Trump “doesn’t know when it’s time to just shut up” in response to the GOP nominee’s targeting of former Miss Universe Alicia Machado and his clumsy handling of a birtherism question at the first presidential debate.

Reagan’s tweets began as a response to Trump making the bizarre claim Saturday at a campaign rally in Manheim, Pennsylvania that Hillary Clinton had been unfaithful in her marriage.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
