Ronald Reagan's Son Rips Apart Donald Trump in a Firestorm of Tweets
Michael Reagan, son of Ronald Reagan and his first wife Jane Wyman, made it clear he does not support Donald Trump, and neither would his father. In a series of tweets linking to a Politico article about Trump implying that Hillary Clinton has cheated on her husband Bill Clinton, 71-year-old Reagan said he was "embarrassed" by the GOP nominee. "I can hear my father saying, 'I didn't leave the party, the party left me,'" he wrote, and added that Nancy Reagan would have voted for Clinton.
See some of his tweets:
Reagan also called for RNC chairman Reince Priebus not to support Trump.
In response to a Twitter user who said, "Your mother was loyal to the very end, and beyond," Reagan answered:
He insisted his father wouldn't have encouraged "this kind of campaign."
Michael isn't the first of Ronald Reagan's children to bash Trump — in August, Reagan's daughter Patti Davis wrote a Facebook post criticizing the GOP nominee after he said "Second Amendment people" could do something to stop Hillary Clinton.
