“Hi, I’m Joanna, I’m from Tennessee, I voted for Donald Trump in 2016, in 2020, but I will not vote for him in the 2024 primary.

“Donald Trump was a great President when it came to economic protocol. I loved what he did there. I loved what he did with the border. He continued to speak and conduct himself in an inappropriate way, and I can’t overlook that.

“I can’t overlook that type of behavior. It’s just, it causes division. It causes division among us. It causes division among countries. If Donald Trump enters the 2024 primary with the type of attitude he’s used in times past towards his opponents.,that would totally decimate the Republican Party.

“That would tear it apart limb from limb, which would leave us in a very vulnerable position going into the general election, no matter who won the primary ticket. I think in the general election, Mr. Trump would be, he would be shot in the foot a little bit with the baggage he carries.

“When I go into the 2024 primary, I want to see a presidential candidate that is strong on our economics. I also want to see someone who reaches out to the whole electorate, that does not stir division, that stirs unity, that will work very hard to bring this country together and will not jump on board petty things and things that just cause division.

“If your plan is to vote for Donald Trump in the primary, I would ask you to reconsider because we need to come out of this primary with a strong, strong, candidate that can carry doubtful Democrats. They are looking for a candidate they can get behind. Donald Trump is not it. They will not get behind him and young Republicans will not get behind him. We need to put somebody out there that we can all get behind and be proud of as President of the United States.”
