(NewsBreakDaily.org) – On Sunday, Colin Powell appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union,” where he made a stunning admission. Come November, he’ll be voting for sleepy Joe Biden in the presidential election. Powell was once a well-respected Republican, but it seems he’s made a full move to the dark side.
During the interview, Powell told host Jake Tapper that Trump has “drifted away” from the Constitution and is dangerous to American democracy. Of course, he didn’t offer any evidence to substantiate that outrageous claim.
Under George H.W. Bush, Powell led the US military in the 1991 Gulf War in Iraq. He then ran the State Department under George W. Bush, where President Trump believes Powell supported the false claim that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. But today, he’s turned his back on the Republican Party.
Trump responded to Powell’s interview with some damaging tweets aimed at the RINO (Republican in Name Only).
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. Didn’t Powell say that Iraq had “weapons of mass destruction?” They didn’t, but off we went to WAR!

Colin Powell was a pathetic interview today on Fake News CNN. In his time, he was weak & gave away everything to everybody – so bad for the USA. Also got the “weapons of mass destruction” totally wrong, and you know what that mistake cost us? Sad! Only negative questions asked.

The president may not get Powell’s vote this year, but his campaign doesn’t seem the least bit worried about it. Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh confirmed the president’s success on Sunday, “… has the support of a record number of Republicans across the country. He leads a united party and will win in November.”
