A GOP Congressman does not believe that Donald Trump is trying to win the presidential election and that his close friendship with Clinton will help her win.

A Florida Republican Congressman who publicly said he isn’t voting for Donald Trump is now saying that Trump isn’t trying to win the United States presidential election.

Rep. Carlos Curbelo [R-FL] believes the Republican candidate isn’t conducting himself in the way that a candidate wanting to win a presidential election would and that he is trying to lose on purpose so that Hillary Clinton can win, BuzzFeed reports

“I have no hard proof for my theory, but I think the relevant question is do people actually think that Donald Trump is trying to win?” Curbelo asked on the Amandi Radio Show on News Radio 610 WIOD Miami on Monday.

Curbelo spoke about how Trump didn’t address Clinton's false claim that FBI Director James Comey said she was truthful about her private email scandal and he shifted his focus elsewhere.

“Mr. Trump has not focused, he instead, that day or around that time, made the comment about the Second Amendment people—whether he meant it one way, it created a huge distraction,” Curbelo said.

The GOP Congressman also pointed out that Trump’s campaign rally in Connecticut, a state that hasn’t elected a Republican to a federal office since 2006, is another form of evidence of why he isn’t attempting to win.   

Curbelo mentioned the presidential candidate's close friendship with Clinton isn’t aiding his campaign to win and that he should allow another Republican to run for president.

“To all my passionate friends who are Trump supporters...I understand why, there are a lot of people who are angry and frustrated in this country, they really don’t like Hillary Clinton for some obvious reasons — put together his recent conduct together with the fact he’s a close friend of the Clintons, they attended his wedding, the pictures are there to prove it. Donald Trump spoke to Bill Clinton three weeks before launching his campaign. I mean, again, I don’t have any hard proof, it may be nothing, but is this the conduct of someone who is trying to win? I just, I don’t see it.”

Most of us are dreaming of the day that Trump publicly states that his run for president is just a scam and that he actually supports Clinton to be the possible future president of the United States.
