Evan McMullin, a former CIA officer who was the candidate of choice for many #NeverTrump conservatives in the 2016 presidential election, accused the president of using his office to “inspire unwarranted fear and hate in the hearts of Americans.”

“This is the work of a desperate, corrupt leader, not a president who seeks peace and prosperity for our nation,” McMullin wrote on Twitter.

Since defeat in the 2016 election, McMullin has emerged as a critic of the Trump administration.

“We will defeat him with truth, courage and charity for all,” McMullin wrote.
