Ex-Trump Policy Chief Renounces Him

Donald Trump’s former policy coordinator has released a statement renouncing the Republican nominee in the wake of a damning video released Friday. “Under no circumstances will I support Donald Trump for president,” Pratik Chougule wrote. Chougule then took it a step further and said he wished he’d never joined Trump’s campaign in the first place. “I regret my decision last April to join the campaign as policy coordinator. Although I left the campaign in August for a variety of reasons, I wish that I had done so sooner and spoken out more forcefully against a candidate who embodies the worst excesses of our culture,” he said. Chougule is just the latest to jump ship after a damning video surfaced on Friday in which Trump made sleazy, vulgar comments about women.
