(DCWatchdog.com) – In a recent appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) made it unequivocally clear that he would not support former President Donald Trump in any electoral scenario.
Manchin stated, “Let me make very clear, I love my country too much to vote for Donald Trump. I love my country too much and I think it would be very detrimental to my country.” His remarks reflect a strong position on the matter, clearly showing his commitment to what he believes is in the best interest of the United States.
Continuing his discussion, Senator Manchin addressed the topic of a potential third-party movement in American politics.
He expressed his openness to such a development, stating, “If there’s a movement, if there’s a movement for third party, I think is what you’re asking about. Can that movement, make a difference? I’m not going to be a spoiler never have been and never will be. But people want options, or they want change. So you got to see what comes and by then I think things will hopefully sort itself out.”
When questioned by anchor Margaret Brennan about the possibility of running for office himself, Manchin did not dismiss the idea outright.
He emphasized his dedication to the country, saying, “I’m gonna do everything I can to save my country and I’ll do whatever it takes. I’ll help whoever and I’ll support whoever that I think can best help this country. Come back to this common sense, sensible middle, which is center left center, right, working together with a majority. You can’t govern from extremes.” Manchin’s response highlights his focus on bipartisan cooperation and his commitment to supporting leadership that aligns with his centrist values.
