GOP megadonor Charles Koch called rumors a "blood libel" that he's considering throwing his hefty financial weight behind Hillary Clinton.

In a speech Sunday before about 400 donors at the billionaire family's summer retreat in Colorado Springs, Colo., Koch rejected the rumors using a centuries-old term for false allegations that Jews killed Christians and used their blood for ritual purposes, The Hill reports

"I want to correct a rumor that the media keeps stimulating, and that is that I am probably going to support Hillary," he said. "That is a blood libel."

According to The Hill, Koch, who together with his brother David helms a powerful conservative donor network, also explained his rationale for refusing to get behind either Donald Trump or Clinton in the general election.

The Hill reports Koch said he believes that neither Clinton nor Trump will fight for issues that he prioritizes, including free trade, reducing the scope of government programs, paring back foreign military engagements, ending corporate subsidies, cutting regulations and the equal treatment of all ethnic and religious groups.

“At this point, I can’t support either candidate, but I’m certainly not going to support Hillary," he declared.
