Former independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin, who campaigned on being there conservative alternative to Donald Trump, is now accusing the president-elect of not being “a loyal American.”
The former CIA operative and congressional aide addressed his concerns in a series of tweets, and based them on Trump’s choice of Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson to be America’s top diplomat.
“It must be clear that Donald Trump is not a loyal American and we should prepare for the next four years accordingly,” McMullin posted.
He claimed that Trump’s choice of Tillerson will result in the United States becoming aligned with Russia.
Former Gov. Mitt Romney, who was also being considered for the post, referred to Russia as our “greatest geopolitical enemy” during his 2012 White House run.
In Tillerson, Trump has identified a potential secretary of state unlikely to oppose Trump's alignment with Putin. https://t.co/xc8aWzOOW6
