‘Incredibly disappointed’ Baker maintains sideline stance on Trump vs. Clinton

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker turned his back a long time ago on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, but even amid the latest scandal over Trump’s comments about women, the governor would not take sides between Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Baker, back from a week-long vacation in Ireland, faced a new round of questions Thursday about the GOP standard-bearer in the wake of released recordings of Trump discussing sexual advances toward women and accusations of harassment.

Baker has repeatedly said he would not vote for Trump or Clinton, and on Thursday when asked whether Trump or Clinton would be better for the country, Baker, a Republican, said he continues to be “incredibly disappointed” in both candidates.
