Brooklyn, NY - NYS Jewish Assemblyman Will Cast Vote For Speaker Ryan In Presidential Election
Brooklyn, NY - Two months after posting a video to YouTube saying that he was reluctantly endorsing Donald Trump for president by default, a Brooklyn assemblyman has reversed his position, saying that he will not be voting for either of the two major candidates in the upcoming presidential election.
Assemblyman Dov Hikind announced today that when he goes to cast his ballot next week, his choice for president will be a write in candidate, House speaker Paul Ryan.
“Paul Ryan represent everything that is beautiful about America,” Hikind told VIN News. “He supports the Israeli-American relationship and is such a mentsh.”
Hikind acknowledged that by voting for Ryan he will be casting his ballot for a candidate who cannot possibly win the election.
“I have never in my life done anything like this, but never ever have we had such sad, unfortunate, pathetic choices like we have this year,” said Hikind.
Hikind, a Democrat, said that he refused to support Hillary Clinton, for numerous reasons, including her support of the Iran deal, and that Trump’s behavior makes him an untenable choice for president.
“Trump has disqualified himself a thousand different times and Hillary Clinton is a disaster,” said Hikind. “I know one of them will be president but I don’t want to be responsible for that in any way.”
