Galloway called on other Republicans and conservatives like himself to abstain from voting for Trump in November.

A South Carolina college Republican leader blasted President Trump this week, calling him a “supposedly Republican commander-in-chief,” according to a Newsweek report

  • Will Galloway, a political science student at Clemson University and chairman of the South Carolina College Republicans, posted a video to the website of the group Republican Voters Against Trump where he sharply criticized the president for a number of controversies. 
  • This included Trump’s prior knowledge of the Russian bounties for Taliban soldiers killing US troops and the White House’s attempt to sideline the American face of coronavirus, Dr. Anthony Fauci. 
  • Galloway called on other Republicans and conservatives to abstain from voting for Trump this November.

He said, 

"It is not only antithetical to the kinds of conservatism and the kinds of principles and morals that inspired me to get involved in this movement, it's antithetical to the principles of a free society.

For too long we have all been too afraid to step up and to say anything about it, but now the time has come that there is no excuse not to and we have to get involved."

  • He called Trump a betrayal to conservatism and to the country. 
  • Galloway’s video was tweeted by RVAT, which contains a number of prominent Republican groups against Trump — most notably The Lincoln Project and 43 Alumni for Biden. 

  • Trump spokesperson Erin Perrine called RVAT “the swamp -- yet again -- trying to take down the duly elected President of the United States.”
