Another Republican has come out in support of Democratic nominee Joe Biden, and this time it's someone who served in the Trump administration.
Miles Taylor served as the Chief of Staff of Trump's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) until 2019.
In a recent video for Republican Voters Against Trump (RVAT), Taylor offered his full support for Biden and gave a disturbing inside look into Trump's attitude towards national security. Taylor accompanied the video with an op-ed in the Washington Post.
Some of the Trump administration's most controversial actions have been spearheaded by the DHS, including the separation of immigrant families and the deployment of anonymous militarized officers to arrest protesters.
Taylor says in the video:
"We would go in to try to talk to [Trump] about a pressing national security issue, cyber attack, terrorism threat. He wasn't interested in those things. To him, they weren't priorities. The President wanted to exploit the Department of Homeland Security for his own political purposes."
Taylor goes on to detail a particularly harrowing account during the California wildfires last year, in which Trump told the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to cut off assistance to California.
"He told us to stop giving money to people whose houses had burned down from a wildfire because he was so rageful that people in the state of California didn't support him and that politically, it wasn't a base for them."
Taylor's account runs parallel to much of what Donald Trump has already stated publicly, including that he has "magical authorities" as President.
People were disturbed to hear the new details from the Trump administration.
Others urged their followers to watch the ad.
Taylor warned that the Trump administration would be eager to double down on its actions if given a second term.
