Colin Powell Explains Why He’s Voting for Biden, Says Trump has “drifted away” from the Constitution

Appearing on CNN with Jake Tapper, former Secretary of State Colin Powell explained why he’s voting for Joe Biden.

“I’m very close to Joe Biden in a social matter and in a political matter,” Powell told Jake Tapper “I’ve worked with him for 35, 40 years. And he is now the candidate and I will be voting for him.”

Powell also attacked President Trump’s character and accused him of drifting away from the Constitution.

“We have a Constitution” Powell told Tapper “and we have to follow that Constitution and the President has drifted away from it.”

Colin Powell backed Hillary in the 2016 election.
