UPDATE: Here is the full audio of the entire Tuesday night show.
Mark Levin made the big announcement Tuesday night on his radio show after methodically walking listeners through his rationale.
At the beginning of the program, Levin made sure his real feelings were known. It was no secret that Levin’s first choice was not and is not Donald Trump. In fact, he boldly declared Tuesday that despite Trump’s holding some conservative policies, “Donald Trump is not a conservative … and he’s not reliable.”
Levin reiterated his position that Sen. Ted Cruz would’ve been a far better choice to champion conservative principles as president.
But that’s not what happened and … “at the end of the day, someone is going to be president.”
Levin then listed his critiques of Trump one by one. From his behavioral antics during the GOP primary to his lack of understanding when it comes to the Constitution and limited government, from his massive spending increase for infrastructure to his protectionist trade policies, and more.
It wasn’t all bad for Trump, however, as Levin later spoke positively about his tax plan, his positions on immigration, law enforcement, and foreign policy. Levin did offer a common and recurring disclaimer: Trump is NOT reliable.
