Gov. Susana Martinez will not support Republican nominee Donald Trump, her office told media in a statement sent Saturday, a little more than a day after the release of audio that showed Trump speaking off-color about kissing women without their permission and that he would “grab them by the pussy.”
The Washington Post first released the video of Trump speaking to then-Access Hollywood host Billy Bush in 2005.
“What Trump brags about is appalling and completely unacceptable,” Martinez said. “No woman should ever be treated the way he claims he treated women. Unfortunately, there is a pattern of disturbing conduct and offensive rhetoric that raises serious questions about his fitness to be President. That is why I have withheld my support from the very beginning, and will not support him now.”
Susana Martinez had the decency to withhold her support from Trump through the whole race, unlike a lot of other Republicans.
