Former Democratic presidential candidate Jim Webb said Friday he “would not vote for Hillary Clinton,” but that he has not ruled out voting for Donald Trump.
In an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Webb said, “I don’t know who I’m going to vote for.”
Panelist Willie Geist told Webb, “You just said a second ago, senator, that Clinton has been wrong every foreign policy issue since 9/11. You were in the race against her, you expressed all those things. Would you have enough reservation about Hillary Clinton as a commander in chief that you would not support her for president?”
“I’m not supporting anybody right now,” Webb said.
Geist followed up, “Would you vote for Hillary Clinton?”
“No, I would not vote for Hillary Clinton,” Webb insisted.
Geist then asked if Webb would vote for Trump.
The former Virginia senator replied, “I’m not — I’m not sure yet. I don’t know who I’m going to vote for.”
Geist asked against if Webb would vote for Clinton, and he said, “No.”
“And this is nothing personal about Hillary Clinton,” Webb continued, “But I think the reason that Donald Trump is getting so much support right now is not because of the racists, et cetera, et cetera. It’s because people are seeing him, a certain group of people are seeing him as the only one who has the courage to step forward and say we’ve got to clean out the stables of the American governmental system right now.”
“We’ve got to make it work. And if you’re voting for Donald Trump you may get something very good or very bad,” he suggested. “If you’re voting for Hillary Clinton you’re going to be getting the same thing. Do you want the same thing? Six percent of the people in the country maybe want the same thing.”
