Former child star and singer Aaron Carter — the younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter — is no longer supporting Donald Trump for president:

We’ll go out on a limb here and predict Trump will somehow survive the loss of such a powerful surrogate.

Carter had said he would vote for Trump because he is someone who “leads”:

But Carter later told GQ in March that although he supported Trump, he didn’t support all of Trump’s positions — like the one where Trump said he’d build a wall on the border:

Did you know that this tweet would get you a lot of attention?
It was more than just a tweet, I guess. I support Donald Trump. I don’t support every little thing. Trump goes his own way. He’s a leader, not a follower, and he’s proven that by humbling the other campaigns. I think in regards to him becoming president, well, the electoral college will be the decider.

So what elements of his platform do you not support, and when do those things outweigh what you do support?
I don’t agree with banning gay marriage. It’s outlandish, because he has supported the gay community before. And building a wall is totally outrageous.

But the things you do agree with are more important than his stance on immigration or gay marriage?
Well, I mean, there’s still time to see how it works out. And I haven’t even made my vote. If Trump can’t change some of his ways of thinking, then I’m just going to sit this one out.

Have you voted before?

No. This is the first time I’ve ever really engaged in politics.
