Donald Trump is breaking up marriages ... till' death do us Trump, hunh?
One woman claims President Trump made her single again. A retiree in Washington State told Reuters she called it quits with her husband of 22 years because he voted for Trump. She saw as a “deal breaker.”
“It totally undid me that he could vote for Trump,” said 73-year-old Gayle McCormick, who called herself a “Democrat leaning toward socialist.”
“It opened up areas between us I had not faced before,” she said. "I realized how far I had gone in my life to accept things I would have never accepted when I was younger.”
McCormick, who now lives in Bellingham, said she knew her husband leaned right politically. But she felt “betrayed” last year after he casually mentioned during lunch with friends that he planned to vote for Trump.
A man listed in public records as McCormick’s husband wouldn’t discuss the divorce, and said he wasn’t aware an article had been published about it.
“Well I’ll be damned,” the man said when reached by the Daily News.
A Reuters/Ipsos poll of 6,426 people found that 16 percent had stopped talking to a family member or friend as a result of the election. Thirty percent said they ended a relationship entirely.
