|Colin Powell endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. Powell and Condoleezza Rice both former Secretaries of State under George W. Bush have publicly denounced Donald Trump's presidency.|
George W. Bush's former Secretary of State Colin Powell had endorsed Barack Obama for president in 2008 and 2012.
He was roundly criticized by the likes of that old fart Rush Limbaugh for selling out principles.
Powell renounced the Republican Party. He warned the party to start making inroads with minorities and young voters. In 2013, autopsy, party leaders said that they can't be the party of White people.
The party ignored the warning. The party nominated Donald J. Trump for president. He's another old White and rich man. He said that old fart Limbaugh, Sean "Softball" Hannity and internet creeper Matt Drudge are too polarizing. The party is still afraid of them and the impact they could have in primaries.
He said it's time to move on past the Republican Party.
He's now an independent. He came out in favor of Hillary Clinton for president.
Powell who served in the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush administration back in the days said that Clinton is not the perfect candidate.
Clinton was notified of the endorsement while campaign in Florida.
Hacked emails from Wikileaks showed that Powell has strong disdain for Trump.
"Donald Trump is nuts. Everyone wants me to speak out, but I will pick the time and place for maximum effort like I did in 2008 and 2012. Right now, Trump is his own worst enemy."

I'm still a Republican because I believe in a strong defense, because I believe in the entrepreneurial spirit that is so typical of the Republican Party of the past," said Powell.
By the way, it was revealed that Trump once called former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice a "bitch" while at a charity event. He believes in his mind that Rice couldn't handle pressure when she was negotiating overseas.
Rice on her part said, "Can't wait until November 9!"
Rice called upon Trump to drop out the race. Trump is in this until the end.
