Ex-Bush Cabinet Member Endorses Clinton: I’m ‘Afraid’ of What Trump Would Do

Carlos Gutierrez, a Repubican who served as Commerce Secretary under George W. Bush, has endorsed Hillary Clinton because he’s “afraid of what Donald Trump would do to this country.”

He made it clear to CNN’s Jake Tapper this morning that he’s alarmed by Trump on both his ideas for the economy––saying “protectionism and lower taxes… is a recipe for disaster”––but also on his attacks on minorities.

Gutierrez said that he doesn’t want kids being bullied at school and doesn’t “want to live in a society that… Donald Trump will create.”

He’s also alarmed by how David Duke is running for Congress “under Trump’s platform.”

Tapper pointed out how Trump will likely dismiss Gutierrez as just being part of the global elite who got us in the mess we are now. (Which, let’s face it, he probably will.)
