WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Fernandez emphasized that despite the toughness of his decision, he did not want to use loyalty to the Republican Party as an excuse for his presidential vote.
"Vote for Hillary Clinton and then every single Republican on the ticket," Fernandez wrote in the Miami Herald. "I harbor no illusion that Clinton is perfect; none of us is… However, Clinton is, without doubt, a superior choice to Donald Trump."
"As a Republican who has contributed millions of dollars to the party’s causes, I ask: Why has our party not sought a psychological evaluation of its nominee?" Fernandez added.
In 2015, Fernandez wrote an article for the Miami Herald in support of President Barack Obama’s plans to restore relations with Cuba, the billionaire’s native country.
