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.
