CNN Exclusive: Sen. Collins on not supporting Trump: "The tipping point for me was his attack on the Khans"

In her first TV interview since revealing that she is not supporting Donald Trump, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) talks exclusively with Special Correspondent Jamie Gangel, stating, “The tipping point for me was his attack on the Khans.  When he showed absolutely no empathy or compassion for their terrible loss and instead attacked the two gold star parents, and also attacked their religion.  That was just the final straw for me.” When asked if she’d vote for Hillary Clinton, Sen. Collins responded, “I really don't anticipate voting for Hillary.”

TEXT HIGHLIGHTS:

On when she decided she wasn’t going to support Donald Trump:

“The tipping point for me was his attack on the Khans.  When he showed absolutely no empathy or compassion for their terrible loss and instead attacked the two gold star parents, and also attacked their religion.  That was just the final straw for me.”

On why she is not supporting Donald Trump:

“Donald Trump, in my judgment, would make a perilous world even more dangerous.  I worry that his tendency to lash out and his ill-informed comments would cause dangerous events to escalate and possibly spin out of control at a time when our world is beset with conflict.”
