Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin on Sunday said Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is the "wrong person" to lead the U.S.
"He's not a credible candidate," McMullin, who announced his White House bid last week, said on ABC's "This Week." "It's clear, the numbers, the fact that Donald Trump can't control what he says.
"He's never had to control what he said. Never in life has he had to do that. It's unrealistic to expect him to do that now."
McMullin, a veteran of the CIA and a former House Republican Conference policy adviser, also said the controversial billionaire is dividing the country.
"We need someone who will bring this country together. I firmly believe that the time has come in this country for a new generation of leadership, and that certainly is not Donald Trump nor [Democratic nominee] Hillary Clinton."
