Charles Koch Reveals Why He Can't Support Donald Trump Or Ted Cruz

Charles Koch is a multi-billionaire known for supporting the Republican party. During a revealing interview with ABC News, Koch branded the remaining Republican candidates as "terrible role models." He even hinted that it was "possible" that Hillary Clinton would be a better alternative.

He said, "We would have to believe her actions would be quite different than her rhetoric. Let me put it that way." He then shared that he could not back Trump or Cruz unless they backtracked on some of their controversial policies.

He explained, "That's gotta be a hyperbole, but I mean that a candidate--whether they believe it or not--would think that appeals to the American people. That is frightening. What's worse was this 'we'll have them all registered.' That's reminiscent of Nazi Germany. I mean, that's monstrous as I said at the time." Koch was referring to Trump's plans on Muslims.

He also spoke about the Republican presidential race by saying, "These personal attacks and pitting one person against the other--that's the message you're sending the country. You're role models and you're terrible role models. So I don't know how we could support them."

The party donor said that he, and his brother David Koch or their firm Koch Industries had not given money to either campaign. He then added that George W. Bush grew the government 2.5 times more than Bill Clinton did. In addition, a spokesman for the Koch brothers said last month that they would not use any of their money to block Trump from winning the Republican nomination.
