A greiving father who traveled the country attending nearly 45 Donald Trump rallies during the campaign says he is no longer a supporter of the president or his agenda.
CNN’s Erin Burnett Out Front on Tuesday profiled Kraig Moss, a former Donald Trump supporter who attended campaign rallies during the 2016 election to tell the story of his 24-year-old son, Rob Moss, who died on Jan. 16, 2014 from a heroin/fentanyl overdose.
The ex-Trump supporter says he backed candidate Trump because of his promise to help addicts struggling with addiction.
Trump personally reached out to Moss at a rally, calling him “a great father,” and telling him, “your son is proud of you.”
“I’m not on the Trump trail anymore, and I’ve lost my heart,” Moss told CNN in an interview.
“I’m not on the Trump trail anymore, and I’ve lost my heart,” Moss told CNN’s Elizabeth Cohen in an interview, pointing to the president’s support of the American Health Care Act, which would drop an addiction treatment and mental health mandate that covers 1.3 million Americans. Moss told Cohen he believes Rob would still be alive if he had health insurance.
“I believed everything he said,” Moss said. “Now I don’t believe he was true in his word when he was speaking. I think he was looking for votes, to be honest with you.”
“It’s not at all what Mr. Trump promised everybody he was going to provide for us,” he added. “I feel that now—anger, I feel hurt inside.”
