Longtime California Republican Doug Elmets said Tuesday that he is supporting Hillary Clinton for president because Donald Trump "will thrust us into the fire."

"I think Ronald Reagan would be astonished by what has happened," Elmets, who served in the White House during Reagan's first term, told CNN. "He's managed to hoodwink America into believing that he will lead this country through the fire."

Based in Sacramento, Elmets is a consultant who served as the White House spokesman for domestic issues and as a speechwriter in the White House Office of Political Affairs.

He pointed to the violence at several recent Trump rallies, including two in the Golden State last week, as another negative about the billionaire developer.

"Those rallies are not a moment in time," Elmets told CNN. "If Donald Trump is elected president, you'll see these things continue on four years beyond."

When asked what other Republicans think of his position, he responded, "They think I've lost my mind."

However, Elmets added, "I believe I'm in great company.

"They are afraid to say they support Hillary Clinton, but I think they will either do it publicly at some point — or they will privately do it in the polling booth in November."
