In this upcoming election, you are either for Trump or against Trump, it’s a pretty simple distinction to make. However, there is also a group that calls itself “Never Trump” and they are doing everything they can to sabotage Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
With only 100 days until the Presidential Election, the Never Trump movement has named Evan McMullin their candidate for President.
Who is Evan McMullin? According to McMullin’s personal website, he obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree from Brigham Young University in International Law and Diplomacy and went on to earn a Master of Arts degree in Business Administration(MBA) from the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania.
On September 11, 2001, McMullin began a long successful career with the CIA. Since then, he has served in several different countries in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia. After working for the CIA for 10 years, in 2011 McMullin began a career in the private sector, and worked in the “investment banking division” at Goldman Sachs.
During an interview on Bloomberg, McMullin said that he is “proud” of what he learned at Goldman Sachs.
According to Breitbart, there is one HUGE problem to McMullin’s candidacy: namely that the man has “never held elected office”, even though he has formerly worked in Washington DC as a senior adviser to the “House Committee on Foreign Affairs” and in 2013 was named Chief Director of the House Republican Conference, where he was responsible for “advancing the agenda of the Republican leadership in the White House.”
Two days ago, ABC news reported that McMullin officially launched his Presidential campaign, because he felt that:
Our country needs leaders who are in it for the right reasons and who actually understand what makes this country the greatest on earth. Leaders who will unite us and guide us to a prosperous, secure future, beyond the dysfunction of a broken political system.
While speaking with a reporter from ABC, he strongly criticized both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. He said of Clinton, ”
Hillary Clinton is a corrupt career politician who has recklessly handled classified information in an attempt to avoid accountability and put American lives at risk, including those of my former colleagues.She fails the basic tests of judgment and ethics any candidate for president must meet.”
As for Trump, McMullin’s comments were absolutely baseless and illogical. He claims that Mr. Trump is dividing the Republican Party and “playing into the deepest fears” of many Americans, by telling the truth about our nation.
