People Who Voted For Trump’s 2016 Election Opened Up About The Moment They Decided To Not Vote For Him In 2020
A user on Reddit asked conservative users the question “Republicans who will not be voting for Trump this time around, what was the breaking point for you?” Unsurprisingly the question posted by u/BenTCinco prompted over 17 K comments from users and some pretty enlightening conversations about our commander-in-chief.
Check out the responses from users below.
When he attacked John McCain.
“In 2016 when he demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that he completely lacked any moral fabric by attempting to disparage McCain’s military record because he was captured.“- ImRightImRight
The disrespect and carelessness he showed BLM protestors.
“When he gassed a bunch of innocent protestors with teargas to get a picture of him holding a bible.” –kickpicket36it
When Mitt Romney voted for his impeachment.
“Pre-impeachment I was never all that angry. I never voted for him to begin with and I wasn’t planning to this year either. I did vote for mitt romney in 2016 and 2018 because I just like most of the work he does for my state, despite other things. I was surprised by his vote to impeach, and even impressed in a way. I knew he had committed career suicide by doing this, but the backlash he got state-side and from the Trump administration as well as the republican party as a whole was disgusting to me. When Mitt Romney was potentially exposed to COVID, and Trump sarcastically said, “Gee, that’s too bad.” All but expressing how little he cared if my representative lived or died. That was it. The president is dead to me until a new one is elected. Fuck Trump.” –NoonTide86
When he displayed his lack of understanding of actual science.
“Suppose we hit the body, with a tremendous light.” –Mjbass
When he showed how little he cared about the environment and our future.
“Stripping wildlife and environmental protections. Goodbye, investment growth, we had a good run. I’ll miss you.” – GPQ70
When he showed he had zero focus.
“It really pissed me off when like two days ago he made cub hunting legal in Alaska. Like WHAT IN THE GODDAMN FUCK. Not only is that fucking horrible, but I feel like changing hunting regulations is not exactly what a President should be focusing on with everything else going on right now.” –MountainDude95
When he despicably used George Floyd’s name in vain.
“This quote? ‘Hopefully George is looking down right now and saying this is a great thing that’s happening for our country. It’s a great day for him. It’s a great day for everybody. This is a great day for everybody. This is a great, great day in terms of equality. It’s really what our Constitution requires, and it’s what our country is all about.'” – Annoy_Occult_Vet
His disastrous handling of the coronavirus.
“The final blow? Was his handling of the Corona Virus. Putting states at odds with each and the feds over medical supplies?” –mentaltease
His constant lies.
“The fact he appointed a oil exec to be the head of the EPA so it could be dismantled.. And that he lies constantly.. I left the GOP” – BRoodingENT
Not speaking out about police brutality.
“A relative of mine messaged me about a week after the George Floyd protests had been going to inform me that she had seen a post I made online about it and it moved her to tears. She told me she was no longer supporting Trump because he did not once speak out about police brutality and everything happening. I believe it is the fact that when she saw George Floyd’s death she saw her black family members in his place and realized she could no longer support someone who would let that happen. As much as I love her, her views have in the past been problematic and kind of racist which hurt me. It was a shock to me that she flipped so suddenly considering how awful he has been in the past, but I think when things become personal and threaten your family, it can be the one thing that shocks you into seeing the reality of things.” – Sirmoulin
When he threatened to shoot looters.
“Recently when he threatened to shoot looters. (I don’t support the looting, it’s just that the punishment shouldn’t be death.) Also when he said that the 75-year-old man who was pushed down was actually ANTIFA.”- Sirmoulin
And of course, his ridiculous Twitter tants.
“Annoying non-stop Twitter rants, egomaniac, lack of empathy, Divide and Conquer mentality, tyrannical White House Turn-Over Rate. Yeah, there’s typically some that resign in politics, but WOW. Front door is now a revolving door. Any high-ranking official that gets excited to work with/for him does and then goes running screaming (resignation) and then says he’s imbalanced, unethical, conniving, and devisive. All of his friends are either doing time in the Pokey aka Prison (too many to list) or dead (Epstein). He was just “inspecting the underground bunker”. Cowardly (and weird) walk to the DC church (surrounded by police, SWAT, USSS, and snipers) to hold the Bible upside down. He doesn’t give 2 shits about religion. I live near him. I can’t believe what he said about POW John McCain. He likes people ‘who don’t get caught.’ ‘Punch him in the face; I’ll pay your legal fees.’ We’ve gotten a good picture now about exactly how this maniac rolls and it is not good. When the country is going to hell in a hand basket and we need to hear from our leader (Presidential Address), he’s absent or says something super fucked up on Twitter to make the situation worse. We need someone A LOT more emotionally and mentally mature to deserve residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and properly handling the economy like a BOSS, nurturing peaceful and strong foreign relations, and creating as a leader an environment for us, for the people of the United States of America to feel that we are UNITED and all in this TOGETHER to make this the fantastic and strong nation that it is. I didn’t vote for either candidate last election. It was like voting for Dumb or Dumber (PALM BEACH) Registered Independent NPA I didn’t want to, thought the Democrats all looked ridiculous, but now voting for Biden.”
