The ex-military man – who wrote an article here explaining why he went from “Trump troll” to supporters of Biden – ended up moving away from the President’s support base and went to the opposite side, now campaigning for Joe Biden Florida, where he resides, and which is one of the states considered decisive in the election of November.

“I’m going to be passing on information to voters about Democratic candidates, not just Joe Biden, but also others in the local elections in Florida, “he described.
“These places are just as important as the presidency,” he added.
The public way of changing Weissman it went on – the ex-military has over 220,000 followers on the social network Twitter and became a member of the Florida committee for Project Lincoln, an organization of Republicans against Trump – made him a target of supporters of the president.

Weissman also addressed the criticisms that the President allegedly he made soldiers who died in wars, classifying them as “losers” and “losers”, according to a report in The Atlantic magazine and statements by Fox News journalist Jennifer Griffin, criticisms that the President denied having made.
“Honestly, I don’t doubt that he did say all that about the soldiers who died,” he said. Weissman. “Any criticism they make of him says it is fake news. There is a recording of him speaking ill of the generals, there is a record of how he has disrespected veterans, soldiers like John McCain,” said the American.
“I served twice in Afghanistan and lost soldiers on my first mission. It is a disgrace to say that,” he said.

In case the President is re-elected, Weissman said he expected “corruption with no end in sight” and the continuation of pandemic of covid-19, “because he doesn’t take it seriously”. However, he recalled that if Democrats gain control over the Senate, a second Trump term will be different.
“One of the good things about our government is that people do not have absolute power. There will be checks and balances,” he said.
“I hope that Democrats see the Senate and that Trump will be held responsible for many of the things he has done over the past four years”, he maintained.
