Jim Webb: I Would Not Vote for Hillary Clinton


Former Democratic presidential candidate Jim Webb said that he would not vote for Hillary Clinton if she were the presidential nominee on Friday's Morning Joe.

Co-host Willie Geist asked Webb if he would support Clinton for president.

"I'm not suppporting anybody right now," Webb said. "No, I would not vote for Hillary Clinton."

When asked if he would vote for Donald Trump, Webb said he was unsure who he would support.

Webb took a swipe at Clinton and her foreign policy expertese and said that she did not have the ability to bring together senior military leaders to get their advice with how to handle matters relating to terrorism and torture.

"We only have one candidate who has broad experience, and she's been wrong on every issue since 9/11. Then you sort of default into the aristocracy, this incestuous bureaucracy that controls how we go about our foreign policy," Webb said.

Webb said that voters are attracted to Trump because a certain group of people believe that he is the only one that has the courage to clean up the government. He also said that by voting for Trump, voters might get something good or something very bad.

"If you're voting for Hillary Clinton you're going to be getting the same thing. Do you want the same thing? Six percent of the people in the country maybe want the same thing," Webb said.

Webb had considered a third-party run for president after dropping out of the Democratic race last year, but he ultimately decided against it.
