“I will be voting for the first time in my life for a Democrat, and not just the president."

Retired Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant Dave Erwin is voting for Joe Biden in November and explained why in a video for Republicans Voters Against Trump (RVAT).

  • “I spent 20 years serving this country in the United States Marine Corps, eight of which I was a Marine Corps Drill Instructor,” Erwin began. “A Marine Corps Drill Instructor’s job is to assess and judge the character and leadership qualities in recruits and officer candidates at Quantico and the Marine Corps OCS and Navy Officer Candidate School.”
  • “My assessment of Donald Trump is this,” he continued. “He has no leadership. He has massive character flaws that should not fill the office of the president of the United States.”
  • Erwin went on to say that Trump has “exploited this country and the divisions in this country and used them for his own purposes.”
  • Trump has also exploited governmental norms, foreign leaders, and “the cracks, however small they might be, in the Constitution,” he continued. “He has exploited the military and used it for his own purposes.”

“And he exploits the very office he sits in for financial gain, whether he has foreign leaders coming in and staying in his hotels, or whether it's the Secret Service staying at Mar-a-Lago, to the tune of $900,000 thus far.

This week, a 17 year old boy answered the call of the president, when the president tweeted on May 29th, 'when the looting starts, the shooting starts.' That young man shot multiple people and murdered two this week."

  • Erwin said Trump lost his support when he “came down the escalator attacking Mexicans, and even more so when he attacked John McCain, a real hero, because John McCain didn’t suck up to him like he requires.”

“I will be voting for the first time in my life for a Democrat, and not just the president. I will be voting anybody out of office that has enabled this president to do the things he’s doing to this country.

On November 3rd, I will be voting for Joe Biden for President of the United States.”
