Quigg had formerly endorsed Trump, calling him “the last hope" – leading some people to believe his Clinton endorsement was just a trick.

Quigg maintained his reversal of opinion when The Telegraph interviewed him, saying his support of Trump “was before we found out about what Hillary Clinton’s main agenda was.” He also claimed to know Clinton’s hidden agenda.

"She is telling everybody one thing, but she has a hidden agenda. She’s telling everybody what they want to hear so she can get elected, because she’s Bill Clinton’s wife, she’s close to the Bushes. [But] once she’s in the presidency, she’s going to come out and her true colors are going to show."

When pressed on why he retracted his support for Trump, Quigg claimed, “We don’t like his hair. We think it’s a toupee. He won’t do what he says he will do. He says he’s going to build a 20-foot high fence along with border with Mexico and make them pay. How’s he going to do that?”
