Former governor of Florida and Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said he will not vote for Donald Trump for president of the United States this November, Politico reported Friday.

“Donald Trump has not demonstrated that temperament or strength of character,” Bush said in a Facebook post. “He has not displayed a respect for the Constitution. And, he is not a consistent conservative. These are all reasons why I cannot support his candidacy.”

Bush also stated that he would not vote for former secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, if she were to become the party's nominee.

“In November, I will not vote for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, but I will support principled conservatives at the state and federal levels, just as I have done my entire life,” said Bush. “For Republicans, there is no greater priority than ensuring we keep control of both chambers of Congress. I look forward to working hard for great conservatives in the Senate and House in the coming months.”
