Republican Senator, Susan Collins, in her op ed Letter to the Washington Post, in part stated the following:

“Mr. Trump lacks the temperament, self-discipline and judgment required to be President. “

“I am also deeply concerned that Mr. Trump’s lack of self-restraint and his barrage of ill-informed comments would make an already perilous world even more so. It is reckless for a presidential candidate to publicly raise doubts about honoring treat commitments with our allies. Mr. Trump’s tendency to lash out when challenged further escalates the possibility of disputes spinning dangerously out of control.”

Meg Whitman, a prominent Republican Fund Raiser and Chief Executive of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, endorsed Hillary Clinton and stated the following:

“To vote Republican out of party loyalty alone would be to endorse a candidacy that I believe has exploited anger, grievance, xenophobia, and racial division. Donald Trump’s demagoguery has undermined the fabric of our national character.” She said that it was time “to put country first before party”. She further stated that, “Trump’s unsteady hand would endanger our prosperity and national security. His authoritarian character could threaten much more. “

Representative, Richard Hanna, Republican of New York, has endorsed Hillary Clinton for President stating that:

“Mr. Trump is “unfit to serve”. “I think Trump is a national embarrassment. Is he really the guy you want to have the nuclear codes?”

Jeb Bush top advisor, Sally Bradshaw, has left the Republican Party to become an independent. She stated:

“I can’t look my children in the eye and tell them I voted for Donald Trump. I can’t tell them to love their neighbor and treat others the way they wanted to be treated, and then vote for Donald Trump. I won’t do it.” She stated, “we are at a crossroads and have nominated a total narcissist-a misogynist-a bigot. This is a time when country has to take priority over political parties. Donald Trump cannot be elected President.”

Long time Chris Christie Aid, Maria Comella, stated she is to vote for Hillary and said:

“Donald Trump has been a demagogue this whole time, preying on people’s anxieties and loose information and salacious rederick, drumming up fear and hatred of the other.”

Comment from Tom Ridge, former Republican Governor of Pennsylvania & Secretary of Homeland Security under George W. Bush:

“I thought he was an embarrassment to my party; I think he’s an embarrassment to my country…I can’t vote for him.”

Former House Speaker, Newt Gingrich, stated the following about Trump:

“Can’t learn what he doesn’t know because he doesn’t know he doesn’t know it”.

William D. Ruckelshaus and William K. Reilly, two former Republican Administrators of the Environmental Protection Agency, stated:

Trump has exhibited “a profound ignorance of science and of the public health issues embodied in our environmental laws.”

The former Administrators take particular exception to Trump’s stand on climate change, which he characterized as a “hoax”. They say climate change is “the singular health environmental threat to the world today.” “To back away now, as Trump wants to do, would set the world back decades-years, we could never recover. The young people in this country deserve far better than that as our legacy.”

Comment from Mel Martinez, former Republican Senator from Florida & former Chairman of the Republican National Committee:

“I would not vote for Trump, clearly. If there is any, any, any other choice, a living, breathing person with a pulse, I would be there.”

Comment from Henry M. Paulson Jr., Treasury Secretary under George W. Bush:

“The G.O.P., in putting Trump at the top of the ticket, is endorsing a brand of populism rooted in ignorance, prejudice, fear and isolationism. This troubles me deeply as a Republican, but it troubles me even more as an American…Never Trump.”

Comment from Mitt Romney, 2012 Republican Nominee for President:

“Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud. His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University.”

Comment from Ken Cuccinelli, President of the Senate Conservatives Fund:

“When you’ve got a guy favorably quoting Mussolini, I don’t care what party you’re in, I’m not voting for that guy.”

Comment from Eliot A. Cohen, a Senior State Department Official under George W. Bush:

“A man utterly unfit for the position by temperament, values and policy preferences…whose personal record of chicanery and wild rhetoric of bigotry, misogyny and misplaced belligerence are without parallel in the modern history of either major party.”

Mark Kirk, Republican Senator from Illinois, stated:

“Cannot and will not support” Trump who, “does not have the temperament”, to be the Commander-in-Chief.
