Michael Reagan says the Republican Party is so off the rails in its handling of the 2016 presidential race that not even his late father, President Ronald Reagan, would have lent his support.

In fact, adds the veteran political analyst, even his late mother, Nancy Reagan, would have bailed on the GOP and its candidate Donald Trump, and instead would have supported Hillary Clinton.

Reagan dropped the bombshell in a scathing tweet posted on Sunday, hours after The New York Times revealed that Trump may not have paid federal taxes for as many as 18 years.

Reagan tweeted this morning: “My father would not support this kind of campaign, if this is what the Republican Party wants leave us Reagans out. Nancy would vote for HRC.”

The tweet is one more chink in the armor of the GOP’s support of Trump, who was heavily criticized last week for his comments about a former Miss Universe, Bill Clinton’s past indiscretions and a suggestion that Hillary Clinton has not been faithful to her husband.

Michael Reagan, one of the nation’s leading conservative commentators, opposed Trump during the primaries, charging the billionaire was not a true Reaganite who supported big government programs while not supporting NATO.

In recent months Reagan had indicated he would support Trump — before today’s tweet.

Reagan joins a growing list of conservative daily newspapers like the New Hampshire Union Leader, Dallas Morning News, and Arizona Republic – all of which have traditionally endorsed the Republican candidate but this year are backing either Clinton or Libertarian Gary Johnson.
