In a segment on CNN’s Out Front this Tuesday, a former die-hard Trump supporter talked about what caused him to turn against the President.
Kraig Moss, whose 24-year-old son died from a heroin overdose, was regular at Trump rallies during the 2016 election, entertaining people with his guitar and sharing stories about his son. His support for Trump was driven by the then-candidate’s promise to help people struggling with addiction. At one rally, Trump even addressed him personally, calling him a “great father.”
Speaking to CNN’s Elizabeth Cohen, Moss said that things have changed since then.
“I’m not on the Trump trail anymore, and I’ve lost my heart,” Moss said, referring to the GOP’s healthcare plan, which would end the Obamacare requirement that states with expanded Medicaid cover addiction services.
“I believed everything he said. Now I don’t believe he was true in his word when he was speaking. I think he was looking for votes, to be honest with you.”
“It’s not at all what Mr. Trump promised everybody he was going to provide for us,” he added. “I feel that now—anger, I feel hurt inside.”
