The coming US presidential election may very well be one of the most tumultuous political affairs that our nation has seen in some time. Only when we think back 14 decades, to a time when both Abraham Lincoln and Robert E. Lee simultaneously shared space on this planet, can we imagine a time of greater chaos.
Now, as President Donald Trump seeks reelection, the Democrats are mobilizing heartily against him. They’re pulling out all the stops, dredging through the annals of recent liberal history to conjure up opponents to speak out against the incumbent Republican.
What’s most surprising, perhaps, is just how many of the President’s own people they’ve recruited as well.
Miles Taylor, who served as chief of staff to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in the Trump administration from 2017 to 2019, on Monday backed the former vice president and presumptive Democratic nominee.
Taylor, who called the president “dangerous” for America and accused Trump of repeatedly using the powers of his office for political purposes, exclusively told Fox News that “this won’t be the last the president hears from me.”
Taylor, a longtime Republican who served as an adviser to the then-GOP controlled House Homeland Security Committee before heading in 2017 to the Department of Homeland Security as a political appointee, announced his endorsement in a video released by the group Republican Voters Against Trump.
The news comes just hours after former Ohio Governor and 2016 Republican presidential candidates John Kasich spoke at the Democratic National Convention, hoping to lend some bipartisan support to the left’s unending hatred for the Commander in Chief.
