Longtime McCain Aide Urges Supporters to “Vote For the Democrat”

On Tuesday, a former long-time aide for Senator John McCain is asking Republicans to vote for the Democrats, in an effort to thwart President Trump’s agenda.

Mark Salter, who was McCain’s chief of staff and speechwriter called on all Americans to vote Democrat on Election Day.

“Vote For the Democrat (in most cases),” Salter wrote on in a Twitter message on election day.

“That feels weird to write,” the ex-McCain staffer continued. “But the bigger the rebuke of Trump the better for the country. Resist.”

This isn’t really shocking since John McCain has resisted against President Trump from the start. USA Today reported back in January of 2017, that McCain was making it very clear that he isn’t just going to go along with everything President Trump proposes, despite the fact they are both Republicans.

Salter has been a long-time critic of President Trump. Back in  2016, he tweeted that he would back Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton over Trump.

From The Hill

Mark Salter, the former chief of staff and speechwriter for the late Republican Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), called on voters to vote Democrat on Election Day.

“Vote For the Democrat (in most cases),” Salter wrote on Twitter early Tuesday morning.

“That feels weird to write,” the ex-McCain staffer continued. “But the bigger the rebuke of Trump the better for the country. Resist.”

Salter comments arrive as polls across the country open on Election Day with many waiting in anticipation to see whether a blue wave for Democrats will emerge in the first national elections since President Trump took office.

Salter, a longtime critic of the president, sparked headlines back in 2016 when he tweeted would back Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton over Trump in the weeks leading up to the presidential election.

He’s also called out Trump for his “unstable personality” and recently dismissed Trump for his attacks on the then-ailing McCain in March, saying on Twitter at the time that “the Senator doesn’t give a rat’s ass what this particular president says or thinks about him.”

McCain, another frequent critic of Trump’s, died in August following a year-long battle with brain cancer.
