Colin Powell Says He's Voting For Biden

Major Republican figures have denounced Trump as the 2020 election approaches including former president George W. Bush, new reports claim.

U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski last week told reporters she was struggling over whether she would back Trump in the November 3 election and praised Mattis' strong words as did fellow Republican Mitt Romney.

Powell, who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, said he's "proud" of the former military officials who have spoken out and that the national and global protests indicate Americans agree.

While Powell now chides Trump for his supposed disregard for the Constitution, the invasion of Iraq in 2003 is considered by many legal scholars to have been unconstitutional. "So what we have to do now is reach out to the whole people, watch these demonstrations, watch these protests - and rather than curse them, embrace them to see what it is we have to do get out of this situation that we find ourselves in now".

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says he will be voting for former Vice President Joe Biden. The ones who vote him in and the ones who vote him out.

"I haven't voted for him, so I'm not going to start now, but that's a different question from actively supporting Biden", said Mark Sanford, the former Republican South Carolina governor who mounted a brief primary challenge to Trump a year ago. "Insulting Gold Star mothers, insulting John McCain, insulting immigrants, and I'm a son of immigrants". He said that Trump's penchant to insult "anybody who dare [s] to speak against him" has always turned him off.

"And that is unsafe for our democracy".

"Didn't Powell say that Iraq had 'weapons of mass destruction?'" Trump wrote.

"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", Trump tweeted Sunday.

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, who followed Powell on the CNN program, offered a more measured response to many of Powell's comments. "Instead he tries to divide us".

The president has expressed sympathy for the Floyd family and peaceful protesters several times. The early days of the protests were marked by looting and rioting in some cities.

Things have apparently simmered down in Washington, DC, but things are heating up in President Donald Trump's Sunday tweetstorm.
