WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The 40-year-old McMullin is the chief policy director of the US House Republican Conference, and former senior adviser on national security issues for the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.
"America deserves much better than either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton can offer us," McMullin told ABC News. "I humbly offer myself as a leader who can give millions of disaffected Americans a conservative choice for President."
Authoritarians like @realDonaldTrump use promises of law & order to justify infringing on civil rights as they consolidate control by force.— Evan McMullin (@Evan_McMullin) July 22, 2016
McMullin is expected to file paperwork on Monday to make his campaign for US president official, according to media reports.
