Colin Powell says he will vote for Biden over Trump

Colin Powell Says He's Voting Biden: 'I Cannot, in Any Way, Support President Trump' — WATCH

Appearing on CNN on Sunday, Powell accused Trump of drifting "away from" the Constitution, after the president threatened to deploy the USA military to quell violent unrest in the US' major cities.

Powell went on to say that he "could not possibly" vote for Trump due to being "deeply troubled" by his remarks stoking the Obama "birther" conspiracy and insulting Gold Star mothers, John McCain, immigrants and "anybody who dared to speak against him".

Powell said Trump needs to understand the Constitution and the restraints on him.

"I'm very close to Joe Biden in a social matter and in a political matter", Powell said.

Powell's condemnation followed a blistering statement released Wednesday by former Trump Defense secretary James Mattis who called Trump the first president in his lifetime who is trying to divide Americans.

Several Republican groups have formed to oppose Trump's reelection, including a super PAC, the Lincoln Project, and a new initiative called Republican Voters Against Trump, which last week kicked off a $10 million digital ad campaign. "I think it suggests the country is getting wise to this and we're not going to put up with it anymore", Powell added.

In a CNN interview, Powell aimed a broad critique at Trump's approach to the military, a foreign policy he said was causing "disdain" overseas and a president he portrayed as trying to amass excessive power.

Powell went on to add that "you have to agree" with Mattis' criticism of Trump because "he is insulting us throughout the world".
